It's time to lay the groundwork for your future

Linda Darby-Dowers,
Chief Executive Officer
At church last Sunday, our minister called his sermon “Building for the Future - A Great Investment.” It discussed laying the groundwork for our future. It doesn’t matter if that means we need to get our finances in place, our businesses in check or something else, we need to prepare.

Our society is stuck in a rat race. Our lives are so fast and furious. And, I think sometimes we don’t want to slow down and invest the time to make our quality of life better. I know it’s hard, but the next time you are faced with something that requires you to show true grit, instead of looking for a quick win, stop and think how working through it could impact your future.

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Veterans Day. So many men and women fought long and hard for the freedoms we have today, and some even gave their lives. Can you imagine what our country would be like if they hadn’t made so many sacrifices for the future of our country? Please, stop and take the time to lay the groundwork for your future, it will be worth it in the long run.
