The beauty is there!


https://www.smallfish.us/business-tips/the-beauty-is-there/

Having grown up around the mountains, I find this picture beautifully striking. Especially as it highlights that we NEVER get to see the stars this clearly anymore; they’re obscured by the light from our cities. Being a business owner or leader has the same problem.

It’s only as lonely as you make it!


https://www.smallfish.us/business-tips/only-as-lonely-as-you-make-it/

Have you lost your way?


https://www.smallfish.us/business-tips/have-you-lost-your-way/

I had the chance recently to speak with several people who are struggling with direction in their business.  They’re each working hard to deliver great products and services, but at the end of the day … it’s a lot of work with no forward movement. Many can relate to this.  And...
