It has been a busy April for us at PG&A, so the content has been a bit spotty. I'm currently working on a piece about hiring that will provide some great advice for solopreneurs and small businesses that are growing quickly about who to hire first.
In the meantime, this post will highlight some quotes that we really like. As leaders, speakers, or teachers, we always need quotes to reinforce our vision or values, to get people thinking in a different way, or to provide expert opinion to support our direction. So hopefully this will serve as a resource for you this week. Make sure to connect with us to learn more!
