editorial 112917 core
Visiting Small & Medium businesses in Texas is like taking a Ph.D. in Entrepreneurship. There is always room for learning, and you take your own spoon of the things that fit you the best.

This week as every other week I visited several companies around the state. One of the things that resonate with me the most is about the Core Value and how they can empower the employees. In a service-oriented company or a manufacturer, in a big city or rural area, in all industries.

Chasing Water

Elegy of an Olympian
by Anthony Ervin & Constantine Markiedes
Anthony Ervin is an Olympic Athlete and Gold Medalist and he and Constantine Markiedes tell the story of the stretch between his two Olympic gold medals which included a suicide attempt, a period of homelessness and a stint in a rock band. Opportunities found and then lost. There was too much drinking, too many drugs, depression, confusion, and finally redemption with his participation in the RIO 2016 Olympics at the unheard of age of 31.

An inspirational story which will give you much to think about on your journey.
