Finding Balance

  Why do we take holidays? What is the balance that we personally need, and what other balance is required in our personal lives and our business? What is Yin Yang, and does this philosophy provide opportunities for us to improve our businesses?   Can we use the Chinese philosophy of Yin Yang to grow our business?   In this vlog I talk about these questions.     Read More...

Some times I get the answer “Not many”. The question? “How many consecutive months have you achieved revenue and profit goals?”. Of course the people in the room are the leaders and owners of the businesses, the place where the buck stops as it were. So the logical next question Read More...
