Craft Talk:

Craig Blixrud introduced our craft speaker, Jerry Olson of Waubay SD and now a Red Wing, MN resident.

Jerry’s first job was working on the family farm and he took that work ethic to the University of Minnesota. He enjoys bike riding and hiking with the family dog. His wife Peggy and he are expecting their 3 rd grandchild in April.

Jerry representing the Resultants for Business focused his talk on Visioning. When they engage with a client, they work with them to create a vision for where the business is going and who is going to help you get your business to the next level.

Resultants helps you get clarity of your vision, identify the people you need to get you to the next level, and measure the progress along the way.

Resultants can make your “Business go further faster”.

Give Jerry a call for a cup of coffee and/or a discussion of how they can help you get to the next level of performance in your business
