Let's face it, the ultimate goal is to find a greater sense of meaning, purpose and happiness in life, but truth is, life can be extremely challenging! As entrepreneurs we evaluate our past wins and re-evaluate our losses. We determine what worked and what didn’t work in previous years, who helped us and who didn’t, and we review budgets and schedules to help us make intelligent decisions moving forward. This juggling involves ALL aspects of our lives -both business and personal. You can’t effectively be happy in one area, if the other is out of balance. Many people try but most do not succeed to have a REAL work/life balance. It is hard to do. So, what can you do differently right now to help get that balance that most of us want and need?

Chivalry is the traditional code of conduct associated with the medieval institution of knighthood, but nowadays, it is commonly associated with men holding doors open for women, paying for their expenses on dates and protecting them, generally, from harm. Those who think chivalry is outdated say it is a benevolent form of sexism that does a disservice to women and men. Chivalry's supporters argue that it carries no disrespect or condescension to anyone; rather, it represents time-honored values such as service, compassion and courtesy.

What Great Brands Do - 7 Highly Successful Brand Habits
#5 Great Brands sweat the small stuff. Smart brands concern themselves with packaging, since that reflects what Procter & Gamble calls one of the first moments of truth with consumers. They also obsess about every point where the company connects with customers – touch points, as they are known – to ensure the brand is what they mean it to be.
6. Great brands commit and stay committed.
Top companies know what they are about and remain ruthlessly focused, not pursuing every possibility that might lead them astray.
7. Great brands never have to ‘give back’
Companies such as outdoor apparel company Patagonia carry out their operations with a sense of social responsibility, so they don’t need to develop “giving back” programs. “Giving back suggests that you’ve taken something that needs to be paid back to balance out your karma,” she says. Great brands are in balance with the world around them.

#3- Great brands avoid trends. While many companies leap on trends, the best brands know what they are about, even if they sometimes challenge trends. They lead change , anticipating and advancing cultural movements.
#4- Great brands don't chase customers. Brands with integrity and self-confidence can use magnetic appeal to attract customers. Brands attract customers by staying true to its identity.
What Great Brands Do.
Great Brands Start Inside.
#1- Insights into branding and marketing is a topic that raises many questions and for good reason: branding and marketing have undergone significant changes within the last few years. Your brand can't simply be a promise - it must be a promise delivered.
So branding starts with cultivating a strong internal culture that aligns with your brand, and will carry it to the outside world. For your employees to understand, embrace and deliver your brand, they need to know its values in their heads, feel inspired by them in their hearts, and then put them into action with their hands and feet.
