There is a business lesson we can receive from squirrels that cross the street. A squirrel with fear will turn back when he sees danger and many times be crushed. A courageous squirrel will many times live because he stays on mission. Courage in the face of danger is a gift that successful entrepreneurs have.
“You have a boss that is a taskmaster.
No matter what you do it is never good enough. You want to quit but haven’t found another job. Stay there, you will learn more about authority and humility under a difficult boss than under a pleasant one. You will be a better person and a better boss yourself sooner than you might think. Change will come suddenly. Respect authority never under cut or back stab. Work well under authority and you will receive authority. Always make those above look good, they will see it and trust you. Your promotion will come right on time.”
“There is a woman with children who needs to make more money. She has been looking for a franchise she can borrow money to buy. Don’t go down that path. Take a second job doing something you have always dreamed of. Work for a person who has been doing it for years even if you have to work for low pay. There you will find the path you have been looking for. You will be in a successful business in a year.”
“Sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know.”
“There are many rainmakers but only one Rainmaker.”
“You have been trying to get your company to go after some extra business that keeps coming at you but your bosses will not listen. It’s time to talk to someone you trust to talk about how to go out on your own.”
‘Don’t talk to a “want-a-be” for advice, talk to a “been there and was successful” about it.”
“It takes more than a good idea and hard work to make a new business work.”
“Wisdom speaks in a small voice, confusion shouts.”
“A person’s talent makes a place for them.”
“When facing a big problem, wade into it because it’s usually not as bad as you thought.”
