One of the comments that caught my attention was this:
Companies…all companies…should start doing things to make people happy and filled with joy like this ,,,,brings people closer together… People want that I think
If you want others to see your value you must first see it in yourself. Here are two exercises that will help you focus on your own accomplishments.
I wanted to share a piece of my last newsletter article on prioritizing your tasks to help with time management because I feel the exercise is a really great way to start the process of freeing up your time. There are many great tools out there to help you manage your time. Here is one I like.
To have an effective mastermind group you will need to have three things in place: Intake, Commitment and Rules. For Commitment a person must be able to book all meetings ahead of time and will commit to being at the meetings as if they were client sales calls.

Are You Going to Network? It doesn’t have to be in a structured setting, but it does have to happen. Get out there and meet your fellow business owners, you will be glad you did.
