680x170-NorthCarolina-NothingCompares

I’m not even kidding… the cutie UPS guy just makes my day… There are two regulars. I’ve never seen one of them smile (whisper a prayer) and the other one is bouncy and full of the spirit of joyful service. Maybe one day I can squeeze him into a selfie. I call him “brown.” ha ha… anyway, back to my assignment…

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU REPLACE THE WORD “community” WITH THE WORD “business” IN THE GOVENOR’s INVITATION BELOW. Just beautiful.

My challenge (assignment) is to listen for resources and opportunities from the perspective of the character builder business owner/wanter. This can spark ideas of ways to add value to the lives of a local or global community and GET PAID .

Next, I think about stuff and let my imagination do that fireworks thing. Then connect dots and apply PMBOK (project management body of knowledge) principles to create step-by-step systems to reach organized, planned goals. Shew… clarity is a beautiful thing. ‪#‎chimein‬ – ḭ ḶṏṼḕ ẏṏṳ Here goes…
