Message from Special Secretary Rhee

I recently took some time away from the office to be with my family. It was a much needed rest and I feel re-energized.It wasn’t easy to carve outthis personal time, but I firmly believeit is necessary, particularly for small business owners. You are the most important asset in your business and you must take care of yourself. It takes a sharp mind and strong body to live the demanding lifestyle of an entrepreneur. While there is no secret to success, good leaders often have similar habits. Take a look at the seven habits featured in anarticle published by Forbes. Thefirstitem on the listis totake care of yourself!
