Happy Holiday Father's Day
June 09, 2014
With Father’s Day around the corner, I have been reminded of the valuable business lessons my father taught me. They weren't business lessons at the time, but rather character lessons that I now try to employ in my business life. There are some real gems among them (some not repeatable outside of the family).Of all of the core business values I learned at my dad’s knee, the one that has always resonated most with me as a manager of people was the following: “Kelly Danielle, you don’t need everyone to like you and be your friend, but you do need everyone to know that you are fair.”
As a business owner, I often think of a 3x3 resin square that sat on his desk with a quote that read, “The world isn't interested in the storms you encountered, but whether or not you brought in the ship.”My father was dedicated to his job, but even more so to his family. He raised, educated and loved us. He gifted us his values, both business and otherwise.Thanks for everything, Dad!
