Top 5 Characteristics of Successful Business Owners!

Define Success in Your Own Terms It is SO easy to let others – well intentioned others – define success for you.  Think about it.  Your parents, your spouse/partner, your children, and the people who work for you, your friends – they all try to define success for you.

Vision Clarity!

20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. If you have 20/100 vision, it means that you must be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision can see at 100 feet. 20/20 does not necessarily mean perfect vision. 20/20 vision only indicates the sharpness or clarity of vision

A Different Word

While traveling I love how God speaks to me. I want to encourage you to travel more as an entrepreneur and person of faith. I strongly believe there are somethings that God will only do and say in a foreign land. I think about all the fantastic ideas and incredible downloads God gave me while traveling recently. God is always speaking but do we have time to listen? When we are open to the possibilities of what he is saying, how he is saying it, and what’s next. We can tap int
