Make it Grow

Things in life should never stay the same.
Change is a big part of growth.
Huge actually.

If change was not such a big deal, why would there be lots of quotes that talk about it?

"Be the change you want to see in the world"
"Change means that what was before was not perfect, people want things to be better"
"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself"

In order for growth to take place, change has to happen. Think back ten years ago...
How did you dress, act? What did you like? Those are the obvious things that change.

Ten years ago, it was 2001. I was a senior in high school that loved to wear Abercrombie and the Nelly song "Hot in Herrrr" .. ahhh Sophomore year.

Change in your professional life, maybe won't change as rapidly. (Unless you are not sure what you want to be when you grow up)

Professionally, my job title has stayed the same for the past few years. The focus however, has changed. Social Media Mack in it's inception was solely catered to social events, networking and social networking.

Economic Development, Teaching and Branding are some of the things we added to our repertoire and "grew" into.

Being different and cutting edge is something that is a necessity for business. Growing is required personally.

"Wise" friends say you change so much from the time you turn 18 until you reach 30. Four years separate me from the end of this ride.

I am going to be the change I WANT to see. - Gandhi
