"Never, Never, Never, Never...Give Up!" Certainly words to live by as an Entrepreneur. So are... " If you are going to go through hell, keep going" , and "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." Now what do you think these quotes all have in common? Well they were all originally uttered by Sir Winston Churchill one of the few truly Great Leaders the world has ever known.. I don't know about you but Sir Winston Churchill remains, for me, one of the most intriguing figures of the 20th century. His ability to persevere, to hang tough during all of life's challenges and hardships, shaped him into someone who was absolutely uniquely carved and prepared to serve the world in one of our most terrifying and dangerous eras. If I could go back in time and sit down with just a handful of "world shapers"...he would definitely be on my list...how about you? It's really too bad we aren't able to do that. However, ...now stay with me here...what if there were an expert on the Leadership Principles of Sir Winston Churchill? What if this person were on a mission to condense and teach his Leadership Principles to the business community,and our school systems? What if this person were right here in Houston? Still with me? Ok...Now not only would it be really great IF this person were an expert on Sir Winston Churchill, but that this person was an expert in part, because he is the Great Grandson of Sir Winston Churchill! Now that would be facinating and normally I would say "Yeh but it's just too much to ask...I mean how often does something like that happen?" Not all that often...BUT it is happening on the 24th of October, at our Lunch and Learn! Jonathan Sandys (Sands) has spent his adult life developing his leadership curriculum based on his Great Grandfather's Leadership Principles. He travels the country teaching, speaking and lending his expertise to our educational system and our business community. Jonathan llives and operates his training company right here in Houston, has become a huge fan of the business owners of MainStreetChamber and he mentioned to me that he would love to come visit all these amazing business owners I keep telling him about!....I think it's a great idea as well. Well what about you?...Want to have lunch with the direct decendant of one of history's greatest figures AND get a great lesson on Leadership that is "battle" tested? Then this next Thursday, join us and Connect, Build Relationships, Celebrate, and Learn from an expert!
