Doing Your Legwork….. - one-on-one conversations!
Working With Diverse Opinions….. • LISTEN. • INCORPORATE.
PASSION. PERSISTENCE. TRULY BELIEVE IN THE IDEA!!! • NO – change for change sake • Can our environment improve?
REMEMBER….. - it is not what YOU think should happen, it is about getting OTHERS to think it will happen.
