We have been afforded the unique opportunity to learn, not just from our own experiences, but from our
clients as well.
Here are a few such lessons (paired with a few favorite quotes):
In the end, Teddy Roosevelt captured it well when he talked of his admiration for the “man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause…” And yet there is nothing noble about stumbling into the same traps as generations of prior business owners or those easily avoided.
Thanks to the MMAC for the community of business owners it has created and serves, and for providing me this opportunity to reflect on all that I’ve learned over the past years. Onward!
