Health and Wellness
47 Trillion Dollars are going to be spent in the next 20 years on diabetes/obesity issues.
By the end of this decade, over 50 million people will be killed as a result of their food and exercise choices. (Twice as many as infectious disease.)
There are more people that are overweight than people who are starving.
By the end of the decade there will be a half-billion diabetics and over a billion pre-diabetics, and only half the doctors to take care of them.

Why Social Media ?
A Picture is worth a thousand words.
As you post…Remember,
“80% of the content you publish or share should pertain to things that really matter to your audience. The other 20% can be about your products and services.”
No one wants to hear a sales pitch from you every day.
We’re conditioned to ignore a lot of blatant sales content.
Keep fans interested and encourage new fans with a well-rounded social media campaign.
Automation Decisions will need to be strategic
There is a limit to the amount of stimulus an environmental play area should have.
Our Greatness will need to be measured

Creating a Culture of Excellence
Culture : The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization.
•Attitude: How do we view the organization that we work for? Is the Leadership of the organization working toward a shared Mission, Vision, and Values?
•Values: Are the organizations stated Values “real?” Are they merely words or do these Values form our culture?
•Goals: Does the organization have Stated Goals? Are they known to all, monitored, and evaluated at the end of a stated period?
•Practices: Does the organization operate with a set of written standards? Are we consistent? Are employees empowered?
•Branding happens when a customer looks at YOU and sees a reflection of THEMSELVES.
