(v) To travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination

We have access to limitless amounts of information and somehow this has spawned a belief that we have to have it all figured out. That if we don’t, we are less than we should be.

Well that’s hogwash.

This is a journey of discovery, of learning and of excitement. Journeys are a lot more interesting and rewarding if they aren’t planned down to microscopic detail. We can either look at our itinerary or look where we are, appreciate where we are and grow from the experience.

STOP RIGHT THERE!

Your Business Assets

We all get busy doing the things we love that sometimes we forget about or avoid the things that don't set us on fire. For many entrepreneurs, that means some of the really techy things.

One thing I come across time and again is entrepreneurs and small businesses who don't have full control over their digital assets.

It's not an exciting topic and it gets put on the backburner all too easily.  But if you lose control, the heartache and financial stress that results is devastating.
