Welcome to a new year, a new decade and the first edition of In Trust Magazine in 2020.
As we start another year of business, most of us spend time reflecting on successes and challenges to find ways to forge ahead with growth in mind. For some, it’s a matter of staying on the same path but refining processes and approach. For others, it’s a time for a high-risk high-reward change – trying something well outside the confines of the daily routine with the hopes of finding a new formula for a bright future.
In these pages, you’ll hear stories and ideas on both sides of the spectrum. Longtime innovators and entrepreneurs share their ideas and steps for bringing new ideas to life in an existing business, while other small business owners talk candidly about their recent choices to go from employee to employer – including what they anticipated and the things they never saw coming.
The start of the new year also brings to mind a chance to renew, recharge and explore the outdoors. We’re proud that hundreds of hospitality and tourism businesses have chosen to demonstrate their commitment to trust by aligning with BBB NW+P, and we’re shining a light on them today. From bed and breakfast operators in Montana to Alaska outfitters who help guide the way for a once-in-a-lifetime shot to see the northern lights, many of our Accredited Businesses operate with integrity at the forefront to give adventure seekers memories that last a lifetime.
So whatever your goal is for the new year, thank you for doing it all with your heart and focus in the right place – in trust.
