Hello & WelcomeThis issue’s Quote Of The Week is a great one from Teddy Roosevelt, as it sets the tone for the entrepreneurial spirit most of us in this business live by.Namely, a willingness to leave it all in the ring.We’re in this game to win, and in many cases we’ve foregone more timid, safer options in order to take a higher risk -- in exchange for a shot at vastly higher rewards.It is not the critic who counts, indeed.Have a triumphant week.

Some Texans are mingling at the bar when an Oxford graduate walks in. “Howdy, stranger,” one Texan says. “Where are you from?”The Oxford graduate answers, “I come from a place where we do not end our sentences in prepositions.”“Oh, I’m sorry,” replies the Texan. “Where are you from, jackass?”
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
A longer one, but as classic as it is timeless:“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”- Teddy RooseveltTo your success,Your ManageByStats TeamRead Our Newsletters Online!Share Your Thoughts About ManageByStatsWe’ve made it easy to leave a review:Tell Us What You Think About MBSThanks for taking a few moments to give us your feedback!And don't forget to share ManageByStats with your friends.
