CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM



MOLESKINE: As always, it was an honor to lead and help others grow better and stronger. It was especially an honor to have Ready Mix post with us. 

     Before the Q, we spoke and it stuck with me how Ready Mix mentioned how starting an AO was not difficult, as there are plenty of people willing to contribute, and even more importantly, there are people waiting for it to happen, and even more people where it could impact. 

Call me Jack Handey, but the more I think about it, the more it is like  turning a key in a car ignition. Imagine how many things are like that: 

There is probably something or perhaps more than one thing in each of our lives in which there are people just waiting for "it" to happen, and there already are willing folks to help, and infrastructure already in place to put that thing into orbit. All that is really waiting is for you to turn the key to the ignition. 

What is "it" in your life? 


Who could potentially help you? 


What is holding you back? 


What are you doing to do about it?
