Posted by Orchid Advisors on 9/2/19 10:21 AM

For many in the firearms industry, the “bound book” is well known as the regulated record for tracking the lifecycle movement of a firearm through the commercial sector and between licenses and non-licensees. Perhaps less well known are the unintended consequences of relying on software company advertising and advice as the sole determination of your needs as an FFL.

Chairwoman’s Message: Try Something New and Keep Moving Forward

Posted by Laurie Aronson on 9/2/19 10:00 AM

As summer comes to an end and the fall season is peaking around the corner, many of you have begun attending college football games, and kids are back in school. This means numerous trips to crowded Wal-Mart or Office Depot stores for school supplies. Perhaps you’re moving your son or daughter into a new dorm or apartment. I just did it. Twice. With four trips to Target and five trips to Bed, Bath, and Beyond behind me, I feel that my girls are as settled as they could possibly be.

I even tried something new, and it definitely wasn’t by choice. I was charged with putting my daughter’s shoe rack together, which came in a box with a thousand pieces. Not my thing, but I knew I had to do it. Cussing the entire time, I finally accomplished what I set out to do, and it wasn’t so bad after all. In fact, I did a pretty good job. While this simple task may be routine for many of you, it was new for me, and I passed with flying colors despite being reluctant even to try.

President's Message: Accountability Counts

Posted by Kenyon Gleason on 8/15/19 9:36 AM

I’m not a philosopher nor a doctoral degree recipient. And I’ve not spent years studying the inner workings related to the importance of accountability. But it’s something I “just know” matters in life, and in business. Call it a gut feeling. I’m sure you have those too.

And if you’ve ever encountered employers, employees, friends, family, or anyone really, who is not accountable for themselves or their actions, then you absolutely know what I’m talking about.

Around 15 years ago, I had the privilege of taking part in some master’s level leadership training when I was working at the University of South Dakota. We had an incredible number of conversations about the types of leaders there are. We talked about those whom we knew. We talked about the kinds of leaders we’d like to become.

Chairwoman’s Message: Preparation is Everything

Posted by Laurie Aronson on 7/30/19 11:18 AM

A water bottle. Granola bar. Sunglasses and a hat. Kleenex.  Cash and a credit card. Cell phone and headphones. And don’t forget a few business cards in case you meet someone on your hike. I’m all prepared for my morning exercise. It doesn’t take long to get ready because I’m in a routine of grabbing the same stuff day after day. I just wish there was a fanny pack that had a cup holder for my morning decaf too.
