Service Offering

Many service business are specialized, but their services are not differentiated from others so they must lower their prices below competition to win and retain customers.
Ask yourself, what is the core functional job to done and how do your customers want the service to be delivered?
Once customers' needs are analyzed and understood, it is essential to redesign the service offering and the service attributes to match with the customers' needs.

Funding Mechanism

Many service business are specialized and differentiated, but if their funding mechanism can't cover the cost of service operations, the business can't survive in the long run.
Ask yourself, should my company's services be priced according to the hours, days, or months they are provided, or should they be based on the results and outcomes achieved?
Once services have been redesigned, the cost of service delivery must be calculated, and the funding mechanism adjusted to make profit.

The Spirit of The Bear Logo

The national animal of Finland is the brown bear.

Bears feature prominently in Finnish mythology, including the national epic KalevalaBears are spiritual beings in many other cultures, too. Bears symbolize courage, open-mindedness, and trust in instincts.

Despite their size and strength, people are drawn to bears and have a deep connection to them. Bears have starred in stories and legends, representing various meanings. Bear meaning and symbolism include: strength, courage and protection, playfulness, patience, and other admirable traits.

The Bear is also one of the 27 personality types of the Enneagram.

Bears exemplify strength and power, despite their large size. They are built for strength and mobility, using their limbs to forage, climb, dig, and defend.

The bear spirit animal reminds you to find your inner reserves of strength and power, to use them for good, and to stand tall and stand up for others.

The bear spirit animals also teaches you that there are times when diplomacy and compromise may no longer work. Sometimes you need to exert the almighty power of your free will to charge though and get things done.

You are stronger than you know!

The bear spirit animal reminds you to be fiercely protective of those you love and what you hold dear.

Bears share home ranges but value personal space. If someone threatens you, issue a warning and protect yourself without mercy.

Bears dislike surprises and remind you to lighten up and not dampen others' spirits.

Seeing a bear can be a sign to protect your assets.

Bears are highly intelligent and curious creatures like cats, often standing on their hind legs to get a better scent and inspect new objects.

Even though bears can be serious and aggressive, they also possess a curious and playful side. If the bear spirit animal makes itself known to you, it may be reminding you to embrace your curiosity and playfulness.

Bear meaning can also remind you to be affectionate and gentle, rather than tough and gruff all the time.

Bears spend most of their waking hours hunting for food, often targeting smaller animals like rodents or salmon. They possess remarkable patience and can wait for hours or swim for days in pursuit of their prey.

The bear spirit animal teaches us the importance of patience and tenacity in achieving our goals.

Bear symbolism also encourages us to be open-minded and embrace new experiences.

Bears sleep or hibernate in the winter. If the bear is your spirit animal, you value deep sleep and may get grouchy if woken up prematurely. It's important for you to protect your right to sleep and find ways to recharge.

Having a personal sanctuary, like a man cave or she shed, can help you rest, reflect, and recharge.

The bear spirit animal reminds you to not let your energy get drained and to explore your dreams in tranquility.
