Remember Your Mission

In the Internet era, it’s not easy to run a brick-and-mortar bookstore—even one that’s beloved in its community, like The Country Bookshop in Southern Pines, North Carolina. That’s why when owner Kimberly Daniels gets discouraged, she gets out from behind her desk.  “I get up and interact with customers,” she says. “If I just engage with customers, I am able to see where we fit in people’s lives and remember the good we do.”

That’s also the strategy used by Joel Gagne. As the owner of Allerton Hill Consulting, which specializes in helping school districts communicate with their stakeholders, he focuses on his company’s mission whenever he faces a setback. “We are here to help public schools,” he says. “They so desperately need the type of work we do. It helps to focus on the positive impact we create for public schools, year in and year out.”
