Yes? No? Maybe? - The Power of Making Quick, Definite Decisions
Written by Lou Elwell, CEO, Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc.
"The man of DECISION cannot be stopped! The man of INDECISION cannot be started! Take your own choice." Napoleon Hill
I don't keep it a secret that I credit Napoleon Hill with influencing my thinking; in fact, I re-read his master work The Law of Success periodically and learn something new each time.
If you're not familiar with that book, it's his 1,000+ page masterpiece. Think and Grow Rich, his more famous book, is essentially the "Cliff Notes" version of The Law of Success. The lesson on decision really impressed me because mastering the power of making quick and definite decisions has really had a huge impact on our business and my life - it's definitely one of Hill's most important lessons.
"Imagination, alone, is not enough to insure success. Millions of people have imagination and build plans that would easily bring them both fame and fortune, but those plans never reach the DECISION stage."
As a business person, I often come across people who have difficulty making decisions. And in building any successful business, achieving professional success in your workplace, realizing personal success, or creating a positive and prosperous home environment, the ability to make quick and decisive decisions that are consistent with your values and goals is crucial.
To quote Hill again: "The great leaders of the world were men and women of quick decision."
Before you can achieve any level of success, you must first make a firm DECISION to do so.
We, at Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc., have always made the decision to dream big and work harder. We have a mission to achieve paramount success for our company, our customers, our business partners and our friends. SumaGrow products are now recognized worldwide for their ability to increase crop yields, increase soil and plant health and reduce fertilizer inputs (50% plus in most cases). SumaGrow is now in over 20 different countries and we forecast our sales for 2013 will reach paramount proportions.
We want you to make the decision to participate, share in the success and buckle up (or not:) for the ride of your life. Together, we can achieve the impossible. Let's build your business, grow your farm, teach the teachable and do some good in the world.
Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc. Welcomes Janiece Rawalt to Our Research Team.
We are honored to announce Janiece Rawalt as the newest member of our Research and Development team. As research scientist, Mrs. Rawalt will work under the supervision and leadership of Dr. Lalithakumari Janarthanam, Director of Research and Development and co-developer of the technology of SumaGrow.
Mrs. Rawalt is no stranger to the BSEI family and her experience and qualifications made her the natural selection for the position.
Mrs. Rawalt first joined BSEI in 2004 after a dedicated career in wastewater management and compliance testing. She concentrated her career in specialized testing facilities and held senior level positions including laboratory director and senior laboratory analyst. Mrs. Rawalt was also solely responsible for inventory management, compliance procedures and reporting, and water process testing for six separate wastewater treatment plants.
Mrs. Rawalt worked for BSEI from 2004-2008 in Manufacturing and Research Management. During this time she expanded procedures for quality control and developed and conducted focused experiments which furthered BSEI’s technology for water and soil remediation.
Mrs. Rawalt's experience in the soil science and water remediation industry is advantageous as BSEI continues to advance its technology for water remediation and soil reclamation. BSEI is currently working in both the United States and with developing countries to support efforts to protect and preserve valuable water resources often damaged by overfertilzation, energy production and poor farming methods.
Mrs. Rawalt graduated with highest honors in Biology from the University of Southern Mississippi. She resides with her husband and son in Saucier, Mississippi.
Farming is a Major Contributor of the World's Water Contamination; SumaGrow Will Help
According to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), agriculture is the single largest user of freshwater on a global basis and is the major cause of degradation of surface and groundwater resources through erosion and chemical runoff.
Increased demand for agricultural crops, resulting from population growth and advances in farming technology, has caused an increase in contaminants polluting soil and waterways, says the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . This has caused heightened concern about the global implications of the loss of water quality and prompted government organizations and agencies to investigate sustainable farming methods, and even institute pollution controls that directly impact agricultural producers.
For example, in 2010 the EPA released the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), a comprehensive "pollution diet" to restore clean water in the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States. The "diet" calls for a 25 percent reduction in nitrogen, 24 percent reduction in phosphorus and 20 percent reduction in sediment runoff by 2025. Mandatory controls on agriculture are possible in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and New York state by 2013 if pollution reductions fall behind schedule, says EPA.
As regulations of agricultural inputs continues to grow, farmers are finding themselves pushed to navigate in increasingly tricky and unfamiliar waters.
SumaGrow® can help. The technology of SumaGrow® has demonstrated the ability to reduce fertilizer dependence and decrease nutrient runoff and soil erosion-two major contributors of water contamination.
Products containing SumaGrow® create a rich, fertile soil environment for optimum plant growth and yield. On average SumaGrow® reduces fertilizer inputs by 50 percent and in many cases, eliminates fertilizer inputs altogether. The technology also improves the structure of the soil, reducing the runoff of vital, nutrient rich topsoil and decreasing soil erosion and the damaging runoff of chemical inputs into waterways and groundwater.
BSEI is working with its national and international partners to continually advance the technology to:
- Increase food production
- Decrease fertilizer dependence
- Increase the nutrition in foods
- Protect and restore water quality
