    Hi Pat and Lorna,

    Our tribes seem like one big happy family that is there for unwavering support no matter what we are doing just like the support for the Roughriders. It is so fun to be a part of such a wonderful group – whether sports or other. I love the analogy! I hope they won:)

      Glyna,

      We agree. The tribes are very supportive… no matter what our topic of expertise is. Fun and support are definitely the best parts of being in a tribe.

      Unfortunately they lost 🙁 … but they’ll be back!

      Thanks!

    Kevin,

    They definitely love what they do. For the love of the game and the love of the fans… the players in the CFL usually have a second job as well as playing football.

    Thanks!

    Hey Pat & Lorma,

    A great point you make in this post. I want to acknowledge my support to TSA. I’ve learned so much from everyone. From Blogs to social media it’s been very enlightening and for that I’m very grateful. The Roughriders remind me of the Green Bay Packer fans and in fact the team was owned by the city at one time (not sure now). Small city in Wisconsin with incredible fans and LA doesn’t even have a team.

      Michael,

      So true… TSA has been amazing for support and learning. We truly appreciate it.

      Yes, they are similar to the Packers’ fans. It doesn’t take a huge city to be able to support a professional team, it takes loyalty and unconditional support. They lost the big game again this year, and the fans still had a huge rally to welcome them home. We’re ready for next season… bring it on!

      Thanks!

    Pat and Lorna. It never ceases to amaze me the link between sports and “the real world” of business. Any business that can generate that same (or nearly the same) level of support by their customers is sure to become an industry leader.

    What happened in the Grey Cup? Did they win or lose? I remember as a kid watching the CFL on ESPN. Used to love that brand of wide open football!

      Scott,

      Yes, the lessons we learn from sports lend themselves amazingly well to our businesses.
      That level of support would definitely catapult a business to the top… something to aspire to.

      And the result of the Grey Cup wasn’t as hoped… the Riders lost 🙁
      Another big rally by their fans for their homecoming (win or lose).
      Just wait ’til next year!

      Thanks,
      ~ Pat and Lorna

    What a great story! Family is like that too – they are the ones to still support you and lift you up after you fall. More businesses need to create supportive relationships like those!

      Jenny,

      That is so true. When we understand that people (and businesses) aren’t always riding at the top of the wave, and still support them, it creates so much more success for everyone.

      Thanks,
      ~ Pat and Lorna
