On Wednesday I had the pleasure of hearing Michael Symon, the Iron Chef and owner of Lola and Lolitas restaurants, speak to the business owners at the COSE Small Business Conference.
His words were ones to remember and incorporate into any business anywhere.
Some of what he had to say is:
-Have 100% passion for whatever you do
-Believe in your concept and follow your concept
-Your staff is the greatest reflection of you that there is
-Know your strengths and weaknesses
-Don't be afraid to grow/change
-Build your business around YOUR personality - unless you're an asshole
We would all be wise to heed these words of wisdom.
