Breaking Barriers, Building a Hire Ground

Breaking Barriers, Building a Hire Ground

Welcome to the New Year

January 24, 2023

It’s a brand new year, which means it’s the perfect time to sit down and think about our goals and plans for 2023. Sometimes, it can be difficult to look forward. We can get stuck either not knowing what it is exactly we want to achieve or reaching for grandiose goals without a plan. How exactly does one plan and set goals to reach new business heights in 2023?


In this episode, we delve into the process of setting goals, planning and strategizing for a profitable 2023. We discuss how knowing your purpose as an organization can help you build goals around it and empower leaders and teams. We explain the value of transparency and integrity when communicating strategy changes and offer advice on making a pivot. We also highlight how evaluating the previous year can help you set up goals for the new year and underscore how creating opportunities for diverse suppliers can serve your organization.


“Your tactics have to make sense and be a mirror of who you are as a corporation. Whatever strategy you’re setting up needs to be in harmony with who you are as an owner and business.” - Adam Moore
