I started a business nearly 13 years ago that has done exceptionally well.

I always liked the stories like this where huge stars had every reason to be cocky, pushy, and elitist but chose to go the route of professional, helpful, and friendly.

There are a LOT of business owners who taste success and treat their employees like shit, push people around, and stick their nose up at the life they had before winning in the business world.

I’ve consciously worked to avoid that at all costs. I’m a male, but you will never find a single female employee of mine who will ever say I was anything less than professional and equal in my time working with them. I roll up my sleeves and do dirty, hard work right alongside everyone else. At the end of the day, we all go home at the same time.

I want to be remembered as a highlight of someone’s professional life, not as an experience that sucked.
