Success is service – a huge THANK YOU!

INTERACT with me and tell me what YOU want to read! As an entrepreneur, my goal is not success, but service. And sometimes they are a direct relationship of each other! Thank you for 200 followers! Let’s change the world together.

How many of you have heard about the importance of “the power of small wins”? As an entrepreneur, this is probably one of the most important points that you can focus on. Why? Deciding to be an entrepreneur is often a life-long dedication to nothing but FOCUSED DETERMINATION and ENDLESS WORK. And sometimes this is a draining, and often discouraging endeavor. As an entrepreneur, you’ve got to focus on and value the small wins, or small successes that you achieve, for that will provide motivation and a re-energizing of your determination and drive. For me, being a health and wellness entrepreneur, I choose to share this information for the free benefit of everyone who comes in contact with it. And to me, causing even 1 person to learn something new, or make a beneficial change in their lives is a HUGE win.

This morning, I woke up to 200 followers to this blog. I hope this means that people are finding value in the information I’m putting out there. In an effort to increase this even further….I want YOU to write me and let me know what YOU want to hear or read about. LET’S HEAR IT! And on top of that….a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who chooses to contribute to my goal of changing the world by bringing out the BEST in everyone. Let’s keep adventuring to this optimal goal TOGETHER! ❤
