Dear Readers,

How are you this month? It is hard to believe that summer is already over and we’re headed into fall. It has been quite a month around the world with catastrophes and events. In the United States, Hurricane Harvey ravaged Texas and surrounding states, causing flooding and untold damage.

Here in the southern part of Indiana, we get the remnants of hurricanes that hit Texas. They tend to circle around, hit the Ohio River Valley and give us wind and rain, but not anywhere near the extend of a category 4 hurricane, of course. Today, there has been a cold, steady rain all day. It is a good time to read and catch up on articles and I’ve found some terrific tips on improving your site on WHSR that I want to share.

Fighter Pilot Techniques

In August, I had the opportunity to interview Chuck Gumbert, former military fight pilot turned business coach. Chuck is an amazing guy with a lot of focus and the ability to break fighter pilot concepts into the everyday work of growing your business.

In his interview, he shares some very specific techniques that will lead to success not only in business, but in all aspects of your life. Chuck even tells you what to do if your business is failing and you need to turn things around.
