Stoke the Fire with Love and Passion

FireLovePassionLet’s be honest. It’s cold enough to freeze the tail off a brass monkey! You and all your friends have made it known on Instagram, Twitter, and every other social site. I know it’s hard for me to even get out of bed in the morning. Winter is also a time of year when our businesses can suffer. Fewer feet, slower sales, and an overall slump in morale can cause any business to sing the winter blues.

How are you going to heat things up right now? How are you going to shake off the winter blues? Whatever business you’re in, you have ownership in making it successful. You have to take the first step to stoke the fire with the love and passion of what you do.

Like the guy who throws gasoline on a fire, maybe you need to pitch that crazy idea to your boss.

Or the guy that fans the flame, you should make that call to the client who’s been MIA for a few months.

Perhaps you’re the person that adds another log to the fire, and invites that colleague out for a beer and brainstorm.

Now’s the time to get your creative juices flowing and think forward. What are you going to do differently today to make your company warm up in a cold season? Are you going to stoke the fire or let it die from being cold.
