I was recently quoted on Dave Kerpen’s “13 Business Lessons You Learned in Elementary School”!

Give More Than you Take

As a kid, my dad told me to always give a little more than you take in a relationship with people at school. If you apply this, people will always come back for more. The reason is that everyone is focused on taking care of their own interests and over time, the selfishness will cost them the relationship. Although my dad never ran a business, I applied this principle and it has worked wonders in my career.
