GrassRoots

Where it all starts!

For any business/organization, its effectiveness….longevity….success begins at the foundation….It’s the GrassRoots that count.

We put in a new lawn this fall. In North Carolina, for fescue to survive over a hot summer….it has to be stated in the fall for the roots to get firmly established.

The same is true for business/organizations. I wrote in the past about a non-profit that has almost disintegrated. Their property had to be sold….numbers declined by more than 50%.

They had not established a firm foundation (purpose) for the group to exist. People no longer supported this group because the grassroots were never firmly established.

If  enterprises are to face current challenges….there has to be a grassroots structure in place for them to grow and/or reinvent what they do.
