Competitive Advantage Secret

Hello Everyone

I wanted to let you know that I may be a bit tardy in posting new messages as I am busy taking care of my wife Priscilla. She was in the hospital for a month after some complications from surgery. We are now home with home nursing care. I take care of her from 6 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. I have a sitter here with her overnight so I can get some sleep. She has a long recovery ahead but is doing great. She walked 8/10’s of a mile yesterday. Better than most healthy people. She is mentioning chocolate more ofter so I know she is on the mend.

When leaders create this kind of environment, diversity follows, because everyone wants to work in this kind of culture.
