It’s not about being the best －It’s about being better than you were yesterday.
Ahh - the new year. This is the time where we can dive in and begin working on our businesses instead of just in our businesses. So with that in mind, allow me to share a few of my favorite ideas that invigorate me for the new year. The first one, and perhaps most obvious, is to attend the Winter NAMM show. Take as many of your staff as you can so that they get inspired to work on your business as well. Obviously the new products are always exciting, but if you spend time in the NAMM Idea Centers you will come away with many ideas that will make your business better in the new year. Also, make it a goal at each NAMM show to meet new people and to strengthen the industry relationships you already have. “Fortune favors the bold” － Latin proverb Second, are you planning any travel this year?
