Are you letting your environment affect your business?

I’m still playing golf.   Yes, it’s a bit cold although not too bad for the time of year.   Yes, it’s very wet and conditions are not conducive to smacking the ball long distances.  It’s not great for hitting cute shots from the rough either.      The environment becomes all-consuming at times.   It […]

Are potholes in your business making you lose momentum?

Make Decisions Fast (then implement them immediately)

This week Josie was doing some work shadowing with me on my Masterminds.   She was told by the school to observe but not get involved with any of the actual work. I don’t really understand the point, either. So, she sat in on the two days and took notes. Mostly she didn’t get involved […]
