A Business Coach is a Necessity

A Business Coach is a Necessity

I became certified as a Life and Business coach in 2014 and I love it!

Helping people to launch and grow their dream businesses is exciting!

As the world of business moves faster and gets more competitive it is difficult to keep up with both the changes in your industry as well as the innovations in sales, marketing and management strategies. Having a Business Coach isn’t a luxury you don’t need, it is a necessity your business must have.

Accountability is one of the greatest strengths of working with a Business Coach. Remember, it’s difficult to get a truly objective answer from yourself about your business, but your Business Coach will always tell you the truth, even if you don’t want to hear it.

A Business Coach is better than a consultant for many reasons. With years of successful experience that can provide valuable insight, your Business Coach will help you develop long-term and short term goals and strategies, as well as improve your business in areas that you might have overlooked. You may be able to survive in business without the help of a Coach, but it’s almost impossible to thrive…

A Coach can help you see the forest for the trees.

A Coach will make you focus on the game and your long-term strategies.

A Coach will tell it like it is.

A Coach will give you small pointers based on years of experience.

A Coach will listen.

A Coach will help you develop long-term plans that will allow your business to function more efficiently and make more profit.

A Coach will help you make your dream come true.

Call The Ware Agency to discuss your coaching needs!

Meet a History Making Event Planner!

In honor of Black History month, do you know who organized and acted as the event planner for the March on Washington, August 28, 1963?  More than 200,000 people from across the county traveled to Washington DC to protest for jobs and freedom.

Bayard Rustin

Bayard Taylor Rustin was born in West Chester, Pa., March 17, 1912. He had no relationship with his father, and his 16-year-old mother, Florence, was so young he thought she was his sister. From his grandparents, Janifer and Julia Rustin, he took his Quaker “values,” which, in his words, “were based on the concept of a single human family and the belief that all members of that family are equal,” according to Jervis Anderson in Bayard Rustin: Troubles I’ve Seen.

The great achievement of the March on Washington is that Rustin had to work from the ground up.  There had been many marches from the South … but calling people from all over the country to go to Washington, the capital of the United States, was unheard of.  At a time of no internet or cell phones, it’s hard to image how such a feat to could be accomplished.

Rustin had less than two months to organize what was the largest demonstration the country had ever seen.

Rustin’s history in the movement, exceptional skill and deftness as an organizer made him the ideal candidate to coordinate the massive endeavor. Before his roles in King’s ascent and the March on Washington, Rustin, who began fighting for civil rights in the 1940s, was a developer of the first Freedom Ride.

Historian John D’Emilio writes that the eight weeks leading up to the march “were the busiest in Rustin’s life. He had to build an organization out of nothing. He had to assemble a staff and shape them into a team able to perform under intense pressure. He had to craft a coalition that would hang together despite organizational competition, personal animosities and often antagonistic politics. He had to maneuver through the mine field of an opposition that ranged from liberals who were counseling moderation to segregationists out to sabotage the event.”

All of us at The Ware Agency salute all planners whose talents have made a difference. We understand that long before Twitter and Facebook, the great efforts of extraordinary event planners have help shaped our nation as we know it today.

Thanks to President Barack Obama, Rustin has found a new level of visibility last year.  The White House  awarded Rustin the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, in gratitude for his extraordinary contributions to the civil rights movement.

Did you know…..

Do you know?

Each year in the United States, February is dedicated as Black History Month. What began as the grassroots effort of African-American historian Carter G. Woodson has grown into a national time to honor the triumphs and struggles of African Americans throughout history.

Carter G. Woodson was born December 19, 1875, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson. His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.

Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of Woodson and other prominent African Americans.

The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. That September, Carter G. Woodson the Harvard trained historian and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. Known today as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The event inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celebrations, establish history clubs and host performances and lectures.  Mayors of cities across the country began issuing yearly proclamations recognizing Negro History Week. By the late 1960s, thanks in part to the Civil Rights Movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Negro History Week had evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses. President Gerald R. Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.

Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.
