Like the Producers (the 1968 Mel Brooks movie) with selling more than 100% of the profits, don’t be a startup founder and make promises you can’t keep or aren’t viable. Even if you’re not a startup, you should still think about the promises and “yes”s that you give, those mean something — or else they don’t and everyone knows your “yes” is worthless. Which is considerably bad.
That’s one thing I love about my company: we seek the long term vision and goals. And it’s being proven as we speak. It’s been several years since the company was founded and we’re not so deep in so many different promises that we’re unable to keep them. We made the right ones at the right time and are able to succeed in taking care of our customers and our investors and our employees.
I love what I do. I love the leadership where I work. I love where I work.
