The above is from Jeremie Kubicek.

Have a great 2013!!

This is a video that discusses the importance of defining a vision for your company to avoid distractions that can take you off course. Often those distractions come in the form of good ideas. Those ideas may seem terrific in and of themselves, but you must use your defined vision to determine whether that idea will take you closer to what you are trying to achieve or further away.
