This week@work I met with group of business owners who are deeply passionate about their business and it got me thinking about the difference between purpose and intent.
As a business owner the idealism of our purpose drives us to continue to invest in our businesses day after day after day. But it’s the pragmatism of our intent that is as important if we are to leave a legacy, and to monetise those years of investment, sacrifice and risk.
