My Vistage experience has helped me push to create and capture new opportunities. I have been able to understand that all businesses have problems and that they are very similar to some my business faces. I have been able to speak openly and candidly and receive direction, help and criticism. I am in the early stages of being in a Vistage group, but I am gaining friends and confidants–people that will speak honestly with me. Our chair is becoming a friend and a mentor. I love the hard questions that push me down the path to success.
