Great leaders are survivors. They have weathered life’s stormy seas. They have moved heaven and earth to accomplish their business goals. They are persistent and never give up. Please send me your stories of the tests you have faced.
What obstacles have you overcome? I look forward to talking to you at www.AlanEHall.com. Or, if you would you like to ask me a question, you can find my new Twitter feed at @AskAlanEHall. You’ll find my newest ebooks at that location as well.
