Action Item

Andrea talked about her company being more than a genealogy company. It’s a business that helps people to fulfill their dreams. In this case, by reconnecting them with their ancestral homeland – Germany. Your business does more than research or educational services too!

ACTION:

Think about your business beyond the specific tasks that you provide. How does what you do impact your clients? Does it inspire them, educate them, help them grow, fulfill their dreams? Start thinking about your business in a different way so that you can see the change and impact that you have on your clients or stakeholders.
