In business, or as a community, we often measure success in numbers.
They all are appropriate, measurable indicators.
And based on the current optimism I’m finding, I’ll bet by the end of this year the numbers will look, if not record, certainly solid.
The challenge, I believe, is to grow our next generation of leaders as well as we grow our building and business statistics.
So if I have one hope for 2017, it’s that this will become the year of the leader. Because in many corners of the business community, it’s time for some new blood to start making an impact.
