Parenting or Leadership?

The more I learn about parenting, the more I realize how similar it is to leadership.  A few weeks ago I was in the restaurant and found myself taking photos and making videos of everything that wasn't the way I wanted it to be and I posted these videos on one of our...

Invitation to Be More

Invitation to Be More

It has been over a month since I last posted a blog.  To say that I've been busy is an understatement.  Most of my readers know that I gave up the Chick-fil-A franchise at Macland Crossing for an opportunity to open a brand new Chick-fil-A in Rockmart, Ga.  I am...
