I remember the day I woke up and realized we had 50+ people working for our company. Only two years before, we were a four-person startup. How did we get here? I asked myself. The answer boiled down to two simple words: Attitude and Connections.
What did attitude and connections have to do with our success? Everything…as you’ll see below.
While I’ll share my experiences today exclusively from the business world, you can apply these principles to every area of your life.
The Right Attitude
By my count, seven of the people we hired at our business came as a result of chance meetings. The courteous cell phone salesperson, the waiter who went above and beyond the call of duty, or the daycare worker who radiated a positive, go-getter spirit.
They had no experience in our industry, but they had the right attitude.
