Family Breakfast

Every week I attend and help facilitate a business-owner breakfast meeting.  This is not your typical meeting, and by no means is it as large as this picture shows (not my picture - from Google Images) and nor is it intended to be.  Our focus at Family Breakfast is to help hold each other accountable and talk about the things entrepreneurs and solo-business owners have in common.

The rules are simple - no pitching or pontificating, politics stay off the table, open discussion and laughter welcome.

We share a lot.  We laugh a lot.  We support a local business.  Our group has grown from 10 to 18 in 8 months....where we will no longer be adding until people drop out.  It is getting unweildly and hard to hold conversation/discussions, instead, we are having answers provided around the table.

Anyway.....I digress (see shiny object syndrome strikes again!).....last week our theme was a little outside the box - it was Movie Day.  What movie and/or lines from a movie inspire you and your business?

Here is the list that developed:

Duck Tales - work smarter, not harder. 
Remember the Titans - of course there is the Gettysburg scene, but this one truly rocks (in fact, I am wiping tears away as I see a leader step into his own!)

Lion King  - Hakuna Matata 

 GI Jane - the whole movie, while waiting for her to fail she becomes successful, this is hurdle fixer when going gets tough
the Ultimate Gift...the story of the movie, has a list of things to do to receive a legacy, must find a way to achieve and change to get the 

It's a Wonderful Life.... Totally realizes what could happen, eye opener
Rainman - slow changes throughout the movie and money becomes less of a issue

Star Wars -the Yoda teachings

Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn - life is too short to sweat the small stuff!
