Lessons Learned

It is very important to not overwork your employees. You, as the owner, want everyone to work around the clock for your company, but people will burn out working that way.

Rewards are also important. You can have a rigorous job, but it needs to be supported by compliments and positivity. We lost a very important person because we overworked her and didn’t recognize that she needed support, less work, and more recognition of the things she was accomplishing. You have to take care of your people.

Humility is an important trait to have. It is necessary that you can laugh at yourself, because there are times in the business day when that is needed.


Inspiring Quotes

Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
