On July 1st Canadians celebrated Canada Day, and on July 4th the US celebrated Independence Day. Both are well-known symbols of national pride.

Independence is a tricky thing. We need independence to thrive but if we become TOO independent, we risk losing our humanity.

For the rest of this month, let’s celebrate "Interdependence" as a reminder of the importance of connection and community.

Couples strengthen their love when they grow together, and friends bond when they face challenges together.

Communities thrive when they collaborate, and collaborators strengthen their impact by establishing a strong community.

Customers need businesses to make products, and businesses need buyers to purchase them. Small brands rely on larger corporations, and large brands expand when they support smaller partners.

And, nations grow when they honor their neighbors, and neighboring countries enrich their citizens when they appreciate all nations and cultures.

Let us be AS grateful for our interdependence as we are for our independence.

The Powerful Entrepreneurial Mindset
Mindset is essential to reach any goal. A positive mindset fuels success, and a negative mindset can prevent it. This is true in all areas of life, most notably entrepreneurship. There are three phases to building a powerful entrepreneurial mindset.
What Is Success?
When you think of the word, “success,” what pops into your mind? Was it riches and/or a fancy job title? At Succeed On Purpose, we acknowledge that success is truly unique to each person.

The more we allow our business to be fueled by a connection to something bigger than ourselves, the more success we experience. Which is why we must also honor the brilliant work of others. How do you give attribution and still leverage great ideas?
