ECU College of Business Leadership Conference - How to Make Money
What are the fundamentals of how to make money? How can you do that in an ethical way? In this address to ECU College of Business students, I shared, "We all will make more money if we invest our time into inspiring teams rather than managing employees."
Three key points:
1. Treat people fairly and like family.
2. Work hard and let go of fearing failure
3. Solve more problems by empowering others to make decisions
Four philosophies that drive me:
1. Trust is greater than Skill
2. Relationships are greater than Money
3. Doers are greater than Complainers
4. Master the Mundane
Go all-in on your strengths and what makes you happy.
