with Donna Gray
Years ago, my mother and father, who were very astute entrepreneurs, taught me the advantage of courtesy. As a young child, I was privileged, during school vacations, to be able to go on business trips with them, and I had the good fortune to learn from their example.
I have a business friend who keeps telling me that we have to “take the scenic route.” I was recently thinking about this phrase, and I came to the conclusion that being part of a small business is like taking the scenic route. One never knows what’s around the bend.
