"5 Years Retrospective!"

As our company reaches the significant milestone of five years in existence, it’s a time for reflection and appreciation of our journey thus far. In this interview, we sat down with our CEO Neno to delve into the evolution of our company over the past half-decade. He shared his thoughts about the accomplishments, lessons learned, and future goals.

It’s hard to believe how quickly five years have passed. It all started with a freelance project with Marko, one of my closest friends, and now we are celebrating our fifth anniversary with a team of 37 employees. I am especially proud of our employee retention rate, as almost everyone who began working with us in 2019 is still with us at BWS.

The biggest challenge we faced was creating an organizational chart and delegating tasks. It can be difficult to work with close friends and know when to switch from being friends to colleagues and vice versa. While we made many mistakes, the most important thing is that we learned from them and grew as a team. In my opinion, it’s necessary to overcome the chaotic period where everyone does everything and learn how to structure the company from that experience.

Basically, I wouldn’t change much about our company. One of the most important aspects of any company is having a professional HR department, and maybe we were a bit late in making that decision. However, today I am proud to say that we have an excellent HR manager who takes care of everything related to our employees.  

To be fair and honest, I had a lot of doubts in the beginning. As I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t sure how to handle my relationships with my friends and colleagues. However, I was lucky enough to have great professionals around me, and we were able to overcome every obstacle as a team. Since I am a former futsal player, my entire life has revolved around sports. I am a very competitive person, and I enjoy being challenged. I believe that if the process doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough.

I anticipate that our pace of growth will persist as we are incorporating new brands and products into our offerings. With our competent team, established company structure, and extensive experience, we are now better equipped to keep up with the industry’s pace and tackle any new challenges that come our way.

"Business, Sport and Everything in Between"

Our founder, Neno, attended the “Bajkerot i Krosfiterot” podcast on October 23rd, which is presented on their YouTube channel:

In this episode, Neno discussed the vital role of sports in children’s lives and the importance of following their dreams and honing their skills, rather than simply conforming to their parents’ wishes. This is a conversation that will inspire the next generation of talent to pursue their passions.

But that’s not all – he also delved into the captivating story of how Bestway Solutions was founded, offering a glimpse into our journey and what drives us to make a difference.

Our latest venture, which we’re immensely proud of, is also in the spotlight. Neno shared our commitment to promoting our brand through sponsorships that support Macedonian clubs, further demonstrating our dedication to the growth and development of sports in our community.
