For most entrepreneurs and small business people, the key to making the next twelve months better than the last twelve will be the quality of engagement they have with colleagues.

Explore all the ways you can work together with the people around you to accomplish your goals and to help them accomplish theirs.  Be deliberate in choosing whom you decide to associate with and consciously focus on the quality of activities in which you engage them.  Are you discussing ideas, events or people?  Ideas should be your focus.  It’s where entrepreneurs thrive.
