President’s Message – Do You Know What You Don’t Know?
Do you agree with the following statement? “You don’t know what you don’t know - and that can bite you very hard.” Worse is when you think you know and you’re wrong. Have you ever been in that situation? I’ve gathered a file of situations like that and plan to share them with you over the next several months. My intention is to insure that you know that as members of EFBC you have the most amazing resources at your service: EFBC Strategic Partners. Their mission is to help you. They’ll ask what’s your situation with your will or how about the details of your pension plan. They’ll inquire about what you’re doing about your employee health insurance setup, about your company’s digital systems, about your social media and much, much more. Then – and this is the good part – they’ll help you to know what might be about to BITE you and how to avoid it. That’s a mighty great tool.
The easiest way to use them is simply to invite them to your forum meeting. Ask your Forum chair to invite them one hour before the formal start of your Forum meeting. You just won’t believe how much of what you don’t know really could bite you. But they do know. And they can help you and your Forum members avoid those costly “didn’t knows” that can quickly turn into nightmares.
Please send me your own nightmares and I’ll share them too.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. EFBC, 20 Years Deep.
