Over the last few months, I’ve been reflecting on what I’ve learned by reading Yanik Silver’s book Evolved Enterprise. I’ve covered topics like inspiration, giving both forward and giving back, my core values, why I do this and much more. Check out the rest of the blog posts on my website’s blog page or on my LinkedIn profile under my articles section. I was away on a mission trip and wrote about that instead of Evolved Enterprise for a week and I also took some time to write about the World Cup, but can you blame me? That was such an exciting tournament! But I digress.
I love to read and when I came across Silver’s Evolved Enterprise, I hoped that I could learn a few things. Silver’s writing style is approachable and seems to be geared to those with limited time on their hands, like those who run businesses. He fills the book with anecdotes that range from eye opening to insightful. If you’re wondering what anecdote was eye opening, you’ll just have to pick up the book yourself and check it out.
I could’ve read this book in just a few days time, but when I was reading it, I felt that it was talking to me personally. Without giving away too much from the book, I decided that I wanted to share these lessons and my reflections with others so that they too could reap the benefits of Silver’s teachings.
Clarity Finances has been in business for 11 years. I have clients that I love working with and hope to add more clients in the future but feel like there is always room to improve. I attend numerous networking events and conferences throughout the year to stay up-to-date in my field but reading Evolved Enterprise gave me some new insights. The focus of the book revolves around how people who want to make the world a better place can do so through their businesses. I love what I do and love to work and I also love helping people so Clarity Finances and Evolved Enterprise seemed like a nice fit.
As I read the book, I realized that in a way Clarity Finances was already an Evolved Enterprise but there is always room to grow, learn and improve.
What’s next for me? I’ll be attending Archangel Summit on 9/8 in Toronto. This event will be attended by a couple thousand other entrepreneurs who agree with the Archangel Manifesto by Giovanni Marsico, which begins with “I have a dream, of a future free of poverty, hunger and illiteracy. I believe that the keys to social change are entrepreneurship and education. I believe that entrepreneurs are the key to a bigger and better future for the planet.” I’m also always up for a good book recommendation so if you have any that you think I would like, let me know. They don’t have to be business related.
