With every new season and every new issue, things are rolling right along here at Branch Benefits. We have a few new employees who have come on board since our last issue, and we couldn’t be more excited for them to be on our team moving forward. This time around I want to discuss a few topics which have been on my mind lately. Given the remarkable growth of the internet, you can either grow your company beyond your wildest desires or destroy it within a matter of seconds. Within this issue, you will find articles about the importance of your online influence as well as ways to approach self-improvement as an entrepreneur, like in our cover story, The Freak Factor. Finally, I want to discuss the notion of value-added services. At Branch Benefits, we offer much more than just standard insurance policies. Not only will we work with you to come up with a plan that fits your specific needs, but we also offer a number of services which will complement what you are being offered, help make your business better and keep your employees happier. 16 BAD HABITS OF SMART LEADERS As always, we would love to hear your feedback and any suggestions you may have for future issues.
