It All Starts With You

“As the lead entrepreneur know that it all starts with you, you are the head of the organization
and whatever is going on in the head will affect the body.”

-Dave Ramsey

When I was sixteen I finally got the chance to work on the roof with my father’s team.  I remember the night before I was to go on my first job he pulled me aside.  He looked me straight in the eyes and with force he told me “Michael, when you are up there, work hard, because you are going to set the pace for the team.  No one will work harder than the owner’s son.”  Even though I was not the lead entrepreneur, I was his son and that was enough to affect the body.  This is just one example of a much larger principle – the head affects the body.
