It is hard to believe that this year is now halfway over. I have spent the last few days thinking about how my business has changed and what I have learned during the pandemic. A year ago, there was a lot of fear and uncertainty about the future, not only my company’s future but the future many of the small businesses in this country. I have felt frustrated at times seeing the struggle everyone has gone through.
But as I look back at the year, I feel certain some of the changes might not have happened. Not only has the way to do business has changed for many of us, but for me there was a renewed focus and more important for me, was I learned to rely on the help of others when working through the challenges I faced. The encouragement of my group of fellow business owners and friends helped me to see my business differently. I went from being a solopreneur to having a scalable business with employees. I started practicing the advice I give my clients every day. Imagine that. I am happy to say that though it is a lot of work, I feel my business is moving in the right direction, and I am excited to see what the future holds. My heart is still breaking for those who are struggling and are still being adversely affected by the result of a year of shutdowns that limited the ability to compete. I pray every day for all of them.
On Sunday we celebrated the United States Independence Day. I without a doubt I still believe this is the greatest country on earth, and that it still provides tremendous opportunity to anyone who wants to work for it. That is why I am optimistic for the future even after this past year and what we have had to endure. I give a big thanks to everyone who has had a part in making America what it is today and especially to those who have fought to keep it that way.

Show Objectives - The Why
