Do you have a business tip or tool that has helped you in your business to share?
Don’t go it alone!  Recognize and maximize your strengths and embrace your weaknesses.  Running a successful business takes a team of talent.  Having the right talent in the right place minimizes some of the bumps along the way.  Embrace the bumps, it’s part of the process and prepares you for what’s next.  Don’t take yourself too seriously, it’s ok to have fun on the journey.

Do you have a quote to share and inspire other members?
We can all be a little hard on ourselves.  This quote has helped me keep things in perspective throughout the years:
“Perfectionism is self-abuse of the highest order.”  Anne Wilson Schaef

Do you have a go to business, mindset or productivity book that has helped you in your life and business to share?
My go to tool has always been my mentors.  Having like-minded people in your corner willing to share their experiences really pulls you forward when you need it most.  That and lots of praying!
Please tell us about your next upcoming business event so that we can share it with our members and followers:
