Didi King, King Quantum Thought
Your business revolves around your vision with your product or service, but it’s your people who are the engine behind that success. Your business growth comes through the thought process and the self-image of the people working on your vision. It is vitally important to invest in developing your people as you are investing in developing your product or service. If one is growing, but not the other, there is an imbalance that affects the momentum of the organization.
