From the smallest to the most powerful role in your company, you can all make a difference in the world.  Learning to maximize every opportunity will create a company that makes a true difference in the world.  Having a set of values to create a company that has a purpose and a passion is the way to stand apart from the competition and make a true difference in the world.

Transparency – As a leader, you must be honest and show vulnerability.  Taking responsibilities for your actions and the agency’s shortfalls is a wonderful way to show accountability for mistakes and strengthen your leadership.

Find the Missing Link – You can run a successful business and do well, but you need to look for the missing piece of the puzzle to determine where opportunities may exist that you are overlooking.  Potential is the key to any sound business model.

Protect Yourself – Keep your options open if you have a business that gains investors.  Don’t allow anyone to compromise what your business stands for, even for tons of capital.  Many entrepreneurs have great ideas that can funded, but the groundwork must be laid and there should be no compromises on what is fundamental to the company.

Give Back – Find out what is important to your company and what you can do for your community.  Giving back is an excellent way to show the community you care and that you support them and want to help.  Find an outlet that matches your business goals and values and pour into that agency.

Ethics – Run your business with a firm set of ethics.  Offer your customers the best available options and consider them like you would family.  Running a business with integrity is a way to feel good about your business and for people to view your business as honest and upright company that will treat them fairly.

Do what you Love – If you have a true passion for your business, it will show in all that you do.  Money will follow any true dreams and passions.  Using your talents will help you live your best life and give a purpose to all you do.

Grow – Dedicate yourself to a life of learning.  Being wise is a way to achieve more and find greater opportunities in life.  Actively seek out ways to grow and increase knowledge in areas you may be lacking or in which you may need a little extra help.

Self-Care – Taking care of yourself is one of the most critical parts of being a successful business owner.  Continuing to stay fit and healthy and keeping finances in check is a great way to keep stress and anxiety at bay.  Care for everything you are given and always remember to be thankful and give heavily to the world.

Live for a higher purpose and stay inspired.  Find one small thing that you could do differently to improve the world and do your best to achieve greatness.
