Three Take Outs:

  • Be obsessed about knowing who your tribe is.
    Communicate and listen to what they have to say.
  • If you’re a profit-with-purpose business, you’re on the right track.
  • Understand your figures and numbers and always be on top of them.
  •  When you think of your tribe or you receive trollish comments, remember to reference Seth Godin.
    “People like us, do things like us.” Don’t be afraid to really focus on your niche.

Gratitude – I am very grateful to…
