One Decade Down
Last week, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Diamond Nexus with a grand party and celebration. Among our many corporate skill-sets and core competencies, having amazing parties has proven to be one of the most durable.
Entrepreneurs are often giving the message that "40% of all businesses fail in the first five years." This is scary enough, but the second, less known, and even more daunting statistic is that, of the 40% that remain after the first five years, another 60% will go out of business in the next five years!
The word “love” has so many meanings. I love music; I love my cat; I love my family and I love my job. All of those things are true, but they all use “love” in a distinct way.
This is one of my favorite definitions of the word:
Love. n.: a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child or friend.
That feeling of warm attachment and affection is what drove us as little girls to exchange “best friends forever” jewelry. You know the kind — two halves that fit together just so? It was the ultimate statement of friendship.
