The Best Business Lesson

by | Executive Coaching

I belong to a LinkedIn group called Linked 2 Leadership. Someone started a discussion that has been going on and on and on. The topic really has caught everybody’s attention. So I thought I’d ask you.

  • What is the best business lesson you’ve learned from your mother?
  • And since Father’s Day is so close, let’s add him, also. What did you learn from either of your parents that you would call your best business lesson?

My parents always encouraged me to be smart, put my best foot forward, and do everything in moderation.

(If you’re not on LinkedIn, you should be. It helps you grow a professional network, link to clients and resources, show off your expertise, do research on new potential clients and see how you might reach a prospect through a referral from someone you already know. More on this later.)

Also, please remember to keep submitting names for this blog. You’ll be publicly recognized for your creativity and $50 richer. We need your original and remarkable ideas. Tell us your suggestions right here along with your parent’s advice.

Suggestions so far include: The Right Steps, Jeri Quinn on Business, Quinn’s Wins,, Business with Jeri Quinn, In the Driver’s Seat, Star Steps or Reach Your Stars.

So what is the best business lesson you’ve learned from either your mother or father?
