According to a Human Resources expert, "A Team is any group of people organized to work together interdependently and cooperatively to meet the needs of their clients or customers by accomplishing a purpose and a goal."  At TCL Financial & Tax Services, CEO and Founder, Tim C. Lee, considers each person that works for his company a Team Member or Team Leader; instead of referring to them as "Employees."  In Dave Ramsey's book EntreLeadership, Dave describes "Employees" as individuals that come to work late, leave early, and steal while they are there.  In saying that, individuals that think like "Employees" are definitely not allowed to be a part of Tim's company.  When it comes to winning, it takes a Team, and you can honestly find that at TCL Financial & Tax Services.
