You wouldn’t necessarily think there’s much you could learn about business from a guy who’s a forester. Growing up (and even now), my dad loved tromping around in the woods, tackling the nation’s largest forest fires, prescribing forest fires and probably so much more I have not a clue about. He’s now the pastor of a small, humble AME church in Union Springs, AL and teaches agriculture at one of the world’s greatest HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities): Tuskegee University. So what can this global marketing gal learn from her Smokey-the-Bear-like dad about business? Plenty. Apparently, he’s always been smarter than the average bear. 😉
8 BUSINESS LESSONS LEARNED FROM DAD:
1. Do not be quick to hire employees.
2. Save your money.
3. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
4. Do the job right. Train others to do it right.
5. Be dependable.
6. Communication is everything.
7. Remember who you are and whose you are.
8. Believe in yourself.
