    ploughed field 1 by Jason Bowler on FlickrDriving through southwest Ohio in April is amazing. Really. The trees are blossoming, the birds are chirping and… The farmers are spreading manure all over their fields.

    Yesterday I drove the backroads in half the counties around the county we live in as I ventured to visit the in-laws. With three babies in the back of the van, the windows down and the music playing, I caught a nice whiff of manure on more than one occasion.

    But you know what I did?

    I smiled.

    Yeah, I suppose I scrunched up my nose a bit too, but realizing the good that comes from manure, I began to think about how every business owner works with their own type of manure.

    It’s the fertilizer that makes our businesses strong. And just like the fertilizer from one farm to the rest, each of us works with our own special blend.

    You might think I’m gross. You might think I’m wrong. But think about this…

    What do YOU put into YOUR work that makes it better than your competitors?

    No, I’m not saying you mix sh** into your work. I know I don’t. But I also know that my clients get an awesome product from me and my team that they can’t get elsewhere. The fertilizer we put into our work, our team, our ethic, sets us apart from our competitors.

    So what’s YOUR manure?

    What is in your company’s soil that makes it produce amazing results?
