Happy Thanksgiving 2016

Today is Thanksgiving here in the U.S.  The warehouse team gathered together for a very nice, home-cooked feast and shared what we were grateful for.

I told everyone how thankful I was for Michelle’s leadership. She has done an amazing job of choosing great people, creating a friendly workplace, and making sure that everything in the warehouse runs smoothly.

Michelle told everyone that she was thankful to be surrounded by such a great team.  The team was thankful for each other and for Michelle.  Dan was thankful for baby Jesus and Mountain Dew.  Lol.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  We are very fortunate to have you!

–Everyone at Nadine West

Book Summary: The One Thing by Gary Keller

The Big Idea: 1) find your purpose and then 2) for four UNINTERRUPTED hours every morning, focus on THE ONE THING that will get you there fastest.

  • If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one. –Russian proverb
  • Ask yourself “What’s the one thing you can do right now that will make everything else easier or unnecessary?”

  • 80/20: 80% of the output is from 20% of the input.
  • Multitasking doesn’t work.
  • Don’t rely on extraordinary discipline to achieve.  Rely on habits developed with just a little bit (66 days) of discipline.
  • Willpower is limited.  Do your hardest tasks in the morning, when your willpower and energy are highest.

  • Block out the first 4 hours of every morning for your ONE THING and don’t let anyone interfere.
  • Successful people always have coaches.
  • Get used to saying no to requests that don’t advance your ONE THING.
  • Be prepared for a little chaos while you are focused on your ONE THING.

    • I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself.

Check Out Our New Warehouse!

Hi, everyone. Nadine West has been growing so fast that our warehouse layout and organization just couldn’t keep up anymore. It desperately needed some help!

So…huuuuge kudos to Michelle Cruz and her husband Chris. They came in on Saturday, planned out a new layout, picked up materials at Home Depot and practically rebuilt the entire warehouse!! Doesn’t it look amazing??
