September 1 meeting at 7:00 pm via ZOOM with Maylan Newton - “Don’t just sit there do something!”

All the knowledge in the world cannot make it happen. You must get up and take the 1st step, write the 1st word, drive the 1st nail. Our world is paralyzed by great ideas but not the discipline to implement them. Knowledge is not the power we seek, implementation of the knowledge we already have is the key to success. The most successful business owners have had the discipline to take the 1st step.
