The dog that saw a rainbow

Thanks to the movie Kate and Leopold, I learned that dogs don't see color, who knew? Certainly not me.  I have been using this as an analogy for staying true to my vision.  I am a business owner and I am quite passionate about my business and I'm very hands on.  I can analyze data, review facts, read contracts, write policies, manage anything but at the end of the day if the results of my activities don't pass the gut check, I won't move forward.  I think quite effectively on my feet and in motion. 

My partners and I don't always see eye-to-eye on things and that's ok the diversity of thought and perspective is important.  Where they lose me is when the day-to-day struggles of running a business in this economy are allowed to be bigger than the business itself.  I believe in what I'm doing. We are already successful and the proof is on it's way. I am always that dog that sees the colors of the rainbow. I am always the one to stay positive. The glass is always half full.  Somtimes those beliefs are only skin deep as I face the challenges of my life. Most of the time I know and that knowing sees me past the obstacles. 

So I invite you to join me in being the dog that sees the rainbow no matter how gray life may appear to be.


  1. That you are, always positive, always seeing the silver lining.
    It is hard, it is hard to remain positive in the face of adversity, you do it.
    I try.

  2. someone has to maintain the original vision. all success to you.
