  1. This is a good demonstration of how much individually we can truly contribute to our family businesses, although we like to think of ourselves as all-stars. When our company unexpectedly lost two executives within a three month period, it was impressive how the rest of the organization stepped up, and we really lost little ground. After that point, I was convinced that if I could be a more likable boss, employees would surely give 10% better effort, and that would pay out more than me swinging my ax 100% of the time. It was once described to me that stopping to sharpen the ax every so often will actually increase your yield. I’m a believer in the power of the untapped talent on the rest of the team.

    • Excellent, Drew. Your team, like so many others, stepped up when the going got tough. Congrats!
