Business Tip Friday

One of our biggest assets is the feedback from our customers. If you aren’t using it then you are just setting yourself up for failure. Learning to accept feedback is an integral part of becoming a better business and a better leader.

Most of your customers are giving you their feedback because of their good intentions and wanting you to succeed. Use their input to see if there is a broken link in your system and to continue to improve.

Weekend Warriors

The Boy Scouts Give a huge shoutout to Boy Scout Troop 85!

This Boy Scout Troop has been serving the youth and community of Herrin since 1942. They are one of the oldest, continuously chartered units in Southern Illinois. The troop helped in the war effort in WWII & continues to serve with food & toy drives, and countless Eagle service projects throughout the city. Troop 85 continues to build character in the youth they serve by living by the scout oath & law. Many of our community leaders are Troop 85 alums.

Troop 85 assists the Herrin Community in many ways. They are the caretakers of the flags that are posted downtown for Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, & Veteran’s Day. They also post flags at San Carlos Cemetery for Memorial Day. They help with the Scouting for Food Drive every November. Since they are a catholic chartered unit, they also participate in Priesthood & Scout Sundays, annually. Troop 85 is honored to participate in the Herrin Elks Annual Veteran’s Day Dinner to honor the veterans.

As the oldest troop in Herrin, they have a long history of helping the community and training future leaders. For almost 80 years, they have answered the community’s call for service to others. They are honored to have been a part of the fabric of Herrin for generations and continue to be an active resource to serve the community and create future civic-minded citizens.

If you are interested in your child joining: Boys in 1st– 5th grade can join Cub Scout Pack 85 and boys in 6th– 12th grade can join Troop 85. Interested parties can contact the troop directly or visit: www.beascout.org

Business Tip Friday

Focus on micro-growth

Big goals can be overwhelming, and they don’t always give you good points to do check-ins on your progress. Instead of creating a goal that involves 50% growth in a year, aim for 2-5% month over month.

This type of goal allows you to achieve it and feel accomplished. It creates a realistic strategy all around.

Setting micro-goals is a fantastic way to see results over time while your business is growing. You and your team will have constant enthusiasm by hitting monthly goals, which stops you from getting stagnant!
