HELLO AGAIN FROM C-NOTE ENTERPRISES!

We are excited to be back with you again this month, and to share news with you from around the globe!

But before we set sail on our adventure, we wanted to share some local news with you right here at home from C-Note Enterprises!

ARE YOU PART OF THE NEW ‘GIG ECONOMY?’

I am sure that no one could have predicted what the advent of technology would do to our world. The kind of changes it would bring were then the stuff of science fiction, and no human imagination could have conjured-up the complete reinventing of the world it would bring. Economic, social, cultural, political…you name it…and technology would impact it in unimaginable and unforeseen ways.

GIVING THE WORD ‘LEADERSHIP’ REAL IMPACT AND MEANING

img_6

The word ‘leadership’ is a little like the word ‘love’ in our culture…it has been so misused, misappropriated and distorted in our popular culture that its real meaning has blurred. It has become subjective, politicized, and more of a ‘promotional’ term than the definition of a characteristic to which we can all aspire.

PRESERVING THE BEAUTY OF AFRICA

Ok, I have a confession to make. I love animals. I do NOT love vacations of any stripe, to any destination that hurts, harms, kills or otherwise disturbs the natural beauty and/or habitat of any creature, big or small.

AMERICA’S CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE

If you live in any city in America, you no doubt have your own horror story to tell about the condition of the roads/bridges in your community… or the traffic flow that is just NOT keeping- up with the growth in your city.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

THE ‘RAIN MAN’S’ VICTORY LAP

Have you ever taken the time to examine your life and ask yourself what you life is about…who you REALLY are beneath the labels that you present to the world?

img_21

The Bench Bullying approach to bullying is unique. There is an inherent understanding that BOTH the bully and the victim are victims. Both need understanding and emotional support because they are both emotionally damaged and just expressing it in different ways– -one as the aggressor and the other as the defeated victim of abuse.

WISDOM TO GUIDE YOU IN THE NEW MONTH
