“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision, the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”  ~Andrew Carnegie

I have years of experience in the workforce, from business owner to supervisor, manager and now Admin. It’s no secret that the success of any organisation or business hinges on their employees effectively working as a team. Teamwork is no doubt greater than that of working as an individual because each member of that team has their own skills to bring to the table which enhances those of their colleagues. There is, however, that odd occasion when one member of the team steps out into dictatorship role where they tend to undermine the efforts of other team members.

“Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.”    ~Stephen Covey

So this is officially my first entry for my Holiday Guest Post for the year.

Be More Than a Dreamer in 2016!

Dream Big, Dream Often

I think back to just a few years ago, when my life seemed to be empty professionally and personally, and think about how far I have come.  I am no longer working my retail job which, at the time, seemed like a prison. I have married Evelina and we have moved into a new townhouse.  Although my symptoms are tough to deal with right now, my neurologist believes the medical community is on the brink of terminating MS altogether!  Life for me is as good as it has ever been.

And I don’t believe it is by happenstance.

I understand the frustration of all you dreamers out there.  Feeling you could do so much more and wondering why things just don’t seem to work out or why you don’t have a better job making more money.  Or why you can’t seem to meet the right partner.  Or why others have it better…
