Your vision and mission statements should be your ruler and guide for everything your business does. In Part 1 of this series, we discussed how powerful your “yes” is.

Valuing Your Vision – Part 1

2021-04-06T05:57:20-05:00
Join us for the next three weeks while we dive into the importance of valuing your vision in your business and life decisions.

The implied “no” in every “yes” you say.

Each time you say yes to something, you are committing your time, energy or money into that thing. Whether it is a volunteer position at your child’s school or an advertising campaign for your business, your “yes” allocates a finite resource. By saying yes to volunteering in the Sunday school room, your time is committed, and you can’t say yes to any other thing during that time. Your “yes” is powerful and has its own implied “no” to anything else […]

2021-03-02T15:23:16-06:00
Governor Greg Abbott today issued an Executive Order (GA-34) lifting the mask mandate in Texas and increasing capacity of all businesses and facilities in the state to 100 percent.
