Having the awesome role of engaging with leaders on a daily basis gives me a unique opportunity to watch individuals grow over the course of time. As I watch others evolve, I also am honored to grow right alongside of them. Each interaction allows both of us in one way or another to learn. We discover, via exploration, something which might have been hidden from our general review of a topic or situation. When something needs to be dealt with,….

In our society, we are presented with many options and opportunities. Some good and some not so great. What is interesting is that in either case there is someone in hot pursuit of it. From the young charging executive looking for the opportunity to be a leader of a company to the young charging street person looking for the opportunity to be the leader of a gang. Culture provides a great variety of things to pursue – choose wisely.
For the past 6 weeks we have been walking the path of the Fix This Next model of what you should be working on to build your business into the asset it was dreamed to be at the start.

With sales or revenue, cash on hand then comes moving to a place of stability which is the repeatability of profit. Being able to…
One of humankinds greatest gifts is that of seeking out our culture. By exploring the most inner workings of the cultures we exist inside of we can learn much about our past, our present and our potential future. Culture discovery is not an instant gratification process. When we view our culture through the limited lens of a short period of time we only partially see the fullness of what it has to offer. Looking at our culture with a longterm perspectives allows us to view a rich past, a bountiful present and a wonderfully expanding future.
As we make our way up the hierarchy from sales to profit and now to order we are building more than a pyramid. You are building a business asset which is replicable and potentially saleable in the marketplace. When a business owner arrives at the point of exit or perpetuation the business MUST be an asset and not an anchor. Much like not having wind in your sails, having a business which is an anchor does not let you get out of the business what you put into it over the life of the business.
The path we take leads us in many directions. We travel over a variety of tall mountains and deep valleys. Along the way we experience many cultures. A tapestry of people, colors, cuisine, and traditions. This collage of cultural input expands our understanding of who we are as individuals and how we are a contributor to this experience we call life.
