“Saying Yes One More Time”
The focus of this chapter is on how to blend active community involvement with entrepreneurship to reach levels of achievement that I never expected to reach. I started my own business to enable me to have a flexible work schedule that allowed me to spend time with my family and the opportunity to continue my involvement in volunteer organizations that give back to my community. Taking on leadership positions in a variety of organizations has strengthened my business and satisfied my thirst to be a leader by just saying”yes” to new opportunities to make this a better world for everyone.
