  • Scott comes pre-caffeinated
  • Making small business fun
  • Bob Roberts – Glocal- Global and local
  • Globally there are always surface problems, but what we found as the greatest barrier to progress is implementation
  • A draw of motivation- we don’t guilt people in to getting better (progress). We work with heroes enticed out of apathy
  • We aren’t preaching the gospel of ease
    • It takes work
  • When we miss out on human conversation (interaction) we miss out on the nuances of the experience
    • Nuances stimulate the leadership superpower of problem solving
  • Non-negotiables of small business
    • A written vision story (written down – specificity)
