“These are times that try men’s soul’s. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.” Thomas Paine, from The Crisis (1776-7)
I can certainly personally relate to the trying times over the past few years, as they have tried my soul as well as the souls of many others…

A key theme running through my mind and writing lately is ” relentless change-relentless changer” and it’s affect and impact on our
lives and business. Continual movement, activity, momentum like a
waterfall is the norm!
The new world of work is characterized by ‘relentless change’. Technology and social media have changed and shifted how we send and communicate information, as well as how we get and receive information.
We must become ‘relentless changers’ in order to keep up, stay ahead of trends and innovate.
How do we become ‘relentless changers’?
First, we commit to becoming…Continue

same industry and company for a long time.
When things outside of us change, we are changing too. Most times we are not even aware, unless it’s some tumultuous turn of events. I can
