For the Entrepreneur/Owner

You are your company. Your company culture is what you have consciously or unconsciously created.

  • How do you want to be remembered by your employees when you turn your creation over to someone else?
  • How much value do you want resident in your company at your time of exit?
  • How much do you want to feel deeply rewarded by your life's efforts?
