THE LASSO WARRIOR  

As an entrepreneur you always hear how important it is to know your “why”. The truth is, you probably have several “whys”. We all do, we all have more than one goal and a purpose behind it. What can be just as important, if not even more so, is your “why not”.

I could go all Matrix on you and put your brain in a knot. But the truth is, things are as you see them because of how you perceive them to be. Is it a good day or bad day? Depends how you see it.

Story telling in business has become the “in” thing. It’s a great way to tell the story of your business and why you do what you do. But let’s flip this around.

WARRIOR OF DETERMINATION   

One of the most important things you can do in this world is discover your purpose.
