My greatest reward was experiencing and sharing the successes in business with the people I worked with and all of us realizing that without each other it would not be possible. There was no greater reward than knowing the“puzzle of people” I had become responsible for were all completely different from each other, yet together we became recognized as the most successful company in our industry.
Don’t be afraid to fail! You have to try and do things differently if you want to create something new.
Hire those who have the required education, training, enthusiasm, and a willingness to work. You will quickly know when an employee does not fit into your organization; it is painful, but be prepared to terminate them if they do not fit your vision for the company.
Just do it! Planning is important, but even more important is the execution of the plan, the vision. You won’t have all the answers, you won’t even know all the questions, and it will take patience and hard work, but don’t plan it to death, just do it.
If you find the insights above thought-provoking then you will love the book recently published by The Society of Entrepreneurs “There’s Something in the Water, Intimate Accounts of River City Pioneers and Innovators.” For the book, every member of the Society was interviewed and shared their insights on such topics as the qualities needed to be an entrepreneur, advice for someone starting a business and how to find and retain the best employees.
We would love for you to join members of The Society of Entrepreneurs at a Holiday Happy Hour as they share their thoughts and sign copies of the book “There’s Something in the Water, Intimate Accounts of River City Pioneers and Innovators”.
