Texas No. 1 state for business for 17th year in a row, CEOs say - Dallas Business Journal

On Wednesday, Texas topped Chief Executive's list of the best states for business for the 17th year in a row. The magazine surveyed CEOs for the annual list and found the top three criteria high-level executives value most are a state's tax policy, regulatory climate and access to talent — traits the Lone Star State has reaped immense benefits from in recent years. https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2021/04/29/texas-business.html?utm_source=st&utm_medium=en&utm_campaign=me&utm_content=da&ana=e_da_me&j=23689344&senddate=2021-04-29

It's been more than 15 years since a state other than Texas won this award.

Every week I speak to Chambers of Commerce, Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions and other businesses and service organizations about the incredible power of gratitude with a 30-minute talk entitled: “Navigating the New Normal Through Gratitude”. There may never be a more important time to understand the power of a gratitude mindset than during this pandemic. My Zoom program demonstrates how gratitude has transformed countless lives in a world of way too many unhealthy coping mechanisms. Your members will learn about: • How gratitude can overcome any life-changing event • The power of the “You Are” exercise • The 60-second gratitude challenge • How writing in a daily gratitude journal can change a life With over 1100 gratitude videos posted on my YouTube channel, thousands have seen my message and now understand an “attitude of gratitude.” My published books include “The Brooker’s Daily Gratitude Journal,” “Six-Word Lessons to Embrace Gratitude” & other books on gratitude. I would love the opportunity to speak to your group about how embracing gratitude can change their lives too. “Gratitude turns what you have into enough” Thank you so much for your consideration. Gratefully, David George Brooke – “That Gratitude Guy” / 206-371-8309 www.thatgratitudeguy.com / [email protected]
