Team Rohr at the AHR Show!

If you were to throw your mother a birthday party, you would put a little plan together.  Set a date, book a venue, create a guest list, etc.  Yet, so often, we show up for work, in a business of our own, and wing it.  Without some kind of plan, the party, and the business, just [...]

The Law of Freedom
