While many are the ideas that are “floated” about, it is clear that a “back to basics” approach is being sought.

Sharing The Wealth

leejohndrowteamLast week, I was with a friend of mine and we were talking about life and where we were at individually as well as corporately in our minds. What we were seeing and sensing.

Personally I have seen, that when we are not moving ahead and begin to develop those thoughts of “where is this headed”, we become bored, complacent and are apt to get in trouble.
