Now that the election is over, where do we go from here? We cannot wait for Washington to solve our problems.
If the economy has you thinking your business isn’t doing well, be proactive. Join your Chamber of Commerce. I have been a member of the Lee’s Summit Chamber for years and found they do an excellent job.
Second, start networking with people of similar business needs and ideas. Join the Optimist Club, Rotary, Knights of Columbus or Masons. Several heads are always better than one.
Third, start a food drive to help your local food pantry.
Finally, all of the churches in the area have people of all ages, needs and opportunities. Join one of them.
I hope our new president is someone we can all look up to. But let’s start immediately doing things here in Kansas City that will cause Washington to look up to us.
