Welcome to the Second Quarter!


Wow – can you believe we are in the 2nd quarter of 2019?  I can’t.  It seems that I was just starting out the year and April seemed so far away.  So, what strategies do you have in place for this quarter?  How will did you end the first quarter?


Now is a good time to get the team together and brainstorm was to improve performance, brainstorm innovative ideas and make sure you are ahead of pace.


Driving strategy takes more than just talking – you need actions that have meaning and the whole team must know what direction you are going and have bought in to the plan.


As I sit in Europe writing this, I am very aware of what is going on in the world of business.  It is positive, it is strong and those who disagree are living with their head in the sand.  You have a small window of opportunity right now to get into gear and ensure the rest of 2019 will be spectacular.  Before you know it, you will be giving the same excuses you gave last year on why you didn’t make your quota. 


Don’t make this mistake.  Make April the month to make a difference that you will feel in December.  Happy Spring!
