New business book about purpose
Here’s how the author defines purpose:
Companies that embrace purpose are ones that have chosen to focus on objectives larger than just the traditional financial metrics of success, such as revenues, profits, cash flow, and market share. They’ve built into their business plan the attainment of social goals that benefit others who live outside the company, not just themselves. And they’ve done it in a Way that is embedded into their company culture and business model.
Looking forward to reading this.

As I prepared this issue, I was listening toThe Greatest Showman Reimagined music album
, I came across the reimagined version of This is Me
by Keala Settle, Kesha and Missy Elliott. The rap verse jumped out at me, and I’d like to share a stanza with you. I’m sure you’ll know why.
You gon’ be something, you’re glorious / We’re no gangs, but warriors, we well-known, notorious / They can’t stop you or block you or mock you / They mad ‘cause you bad and they not you / You fall down, but get up and skip and hop through / Kick down doors for others to walk through / You have a purpose, to make you say, “Did I do that?” Urkel / Now we callin’ reality virtue / This is who I am, this is me, don’t let them words hurt you
Thanks for reading and see you next time.
