Business Expo West 2018
“Change Happens, Opportunity Awaits”
Spring is finally here and what more clearly communicates that the seasons have changed than the beautiful flowers bursting through the ground, the popcorn blossoms on tree branches, and neighbors emerging all smiley-faced from their homes.
In the business world, a “change of season” may not always be as welcome and pleasing as daffodils and tulips. Or as easy to appreciate. A social, environmental, or economic shift is sure to instill a bit of uneasiness in even the most prepared company leaders. These changes, and they are guaranteed to come, pose an opportunity to respond in a way that will either drain your company tank or fill it. Choosing a positive change response when you’re thrown a curve ball may not be easy, but it is contagious and can potentially impact not just your own life and business, but those around you as well.
The good thing is nobody needs to face these changes alone. Whether it is family and friends, or your business community, reaching out and allowing others to join you through these changes may bring about amazing ideas and valuable connections for your pathway forward. Like a spring flower needs sunshine, fertile soil, and rain, we also need the ideal environment in which to grow. So step out, identify what you need and blossom away!
Business Expo West 2018 “Change Happens, Opportunity Awaits” is the ideal space to connect with community and make new contacts, renew friendships, learn from seasoned pros, and start laying down your pathway to success.
