At least until something distracts us and we have a new passion of the day.

Or until a crisis comes along that forces us off our path.

Distractions, whether from a crisis or from new ideas, are generated by our emotional […]

Core Values Business Strategy

Our company is in the process of further defining its core values. At times we have been the shoe makers children and put all our effort into our clients and not enough into ourselves; going barefoot.

This is a big mistake so we are making working on the business part of our business.

A lot of things may be important to you and your organization but certain things define you, say what you stand for, and what you won't tolerate.

I recently spent $900 each on two totally different purchases and it got me thinking about the value relative to payment. Essentially both complied with Law of Value (The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann) but for seemingly different reasons.
Dump truck and gravel business - small

The Gravel Drive

The first purchase was three big dump truck loads of gravel; roughly 30 cubic yards for our 200 yard long driveway. It was ¾ inch crush which means it had to be what is […]
