There’s a lot we can learn from stories, but the story no one seems to be paying attention to is the golden goose. In my opinion, the golden goose represented a business. Regardless of the size, too many business owners burn out their business to get the most out of it, killing it in the process.
Let’s take restaurants for example. There is a trend that when a restaurant starts out the owner does his best to get as many clients as he can. But after a short while, he turns to profitability. He doesn’t care about the quality of his goods just how to make as much money as he can. Sound familiar?
Notice that the older restaurants and pizza joints still keep getting more and more business, why do you think that is? They focus on their clients and not just the bottom line.
Is your business focused on your customers? Or is it focused on making a quick buck?
