This past week I attended Hearts on Fire University. Hearts on Fire University (also known as HOFU) was held in Las Vegas and we experienced four fun days of educational classes, training classes, and guest speakers.
There was one guest speaker in particular that really had me inspired.
Our guest speaker, Simon Sinek is truly genius! “Simon Sinek teaches leaders and companies around the world how to inspire people. From members of Congress to foreign ambassadors, from small businesses to corporations like Microsoft and American Express, from Hollywood to the Pentagon, he has presented his ideas about the power of why. He is quoted frequently by national publications and is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and BrandWeek.” –Amazon.com
Below is a little clip on his theory about START WITH WHY:
“Why offers an unconventional perspective that explains WHY some people and organizations are more innovative, more profitable, command greater loyalties from customers and employees alike and, most importantly, are able to repeat their success over and over. These are not the one hit wonders. These are the ones who change the course of industries or even society.
Because it’s all based on how people think and act, this unique view of the world has application in big business and small business, in politics and non-profit. Though some people have a natural ability to start with WHY, this book offers compelling evidence that, with a little discipline, anyone can learn how to do it. How does one idea do so much? Simple. It doesn’t matter what you do, it matters WHY you do it.” – Simon Sinek
HOFU helped educate and inspire, and helped with my professional and personal growth. After attending HOFU, I am so pumped with passion and inspiration! This year we won 2010 Western Retailer of the Year. It was so rewarding to see everyone’s hard work being recognized. I am going to give it my all moving forward and find my “why” so that we can win 2011 Hearts on Fire Retailer of the Year and to be inducted to Hearts on Fire Hall of Fame. ❤ Thank you to The Wedding Ring Shop for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow! 1 – 2- 3- HEARTS ON FIRE!!!!
