Are You A Leader?

Dear Sister,

Since this weekend is Memorial Day, it is a good time to remember those individuals who have fought so valiantly for the freedoms we enjoy-not just on Memorial Day, but everyday of the year.

It is also important to remember who our leaders are and how they have lead us to where we are today-as a country and as individuals.

I have been pondering quite a bit lately on what makes a good leader. A few months ago, I began a journey to find a leader in a home-based business that I had learned about a few years ago. I was not looking for a home-based business, I was looking for a leader. My husband and I have been involved with ‘a few’ home-based businesses in the past. We did not have a positive experience with most of them.

Finding the right company with the right product IS the easy part. Finding a good leader takes quite a bit more work-especially when you consider that less than 10% of the people who join a home-based business are able to retire from their ‘day jobs.’ The difference IS leadership!

We have found a leader that is worthy of that title. She was not one of my friends that I originally ‘interviewed.’ In fact, she is not even a member of the home-based business that I was originally considering. I found a ‘new company’ that promotes the same product line that has been around for nearly three times as many years, has integrity and the CEO is truly a man that adheres to ethical standards. (I will be sharing more about the company in the near future. Stay tuned!)

With this new company that my husband and I will be joining in the near future, I interviewed four people. I narrowed it down to two. One of them is a leader in every sense of the word. I wrote the following poem for her.

Are You A Leader?

Are you a leader?

Are you a guide?

Will I feel confident

Walking by your side?

Are your ducks lined up in a row?

Are they running to follow you

Wherever you go?

Do they trust you to lead them

To the perfect place to swim?

Or are they running in circles

And chasing every whim?

Can you motivate?

Can you inspire…

And create in me…

An intense to desire…

To believe that I can do what you do-

And see my life’s purpose

With a much clearer view?
