Welcome to the Morrison Minute where we focus on personal development & business mastery. Today, we're going to focus on the small business owner. You see, just the other day I was waiting at an intersection, the light was red, the windows were down, the tunes were going, and the light turned green.
As I proceeded into the intersection, out of the corner of my left eye, I see a large service vehicle with a trailer behind it come barreling through the intersection. It's clear they ran a red light! Like most humans, I honked on my horn! Just as quick as I honk my horn, the driver of that vehicle rolls down his window and flips me, the bird!
A friend of mine who has a lot more internet followers than I do had a similar experience. Except, he took his experience a step further. I didn't post my experience on the internet, he did. He took a picture of the vehicle that endangered his life, he said how they endangered his life, how they responded to their action, and asked people not to use that company.
Back to the intersection I was at, there were probably a hundred or so cars waiting from all directions to get through the stop lights. And, I would venture to guess that probably half of them saw, what I saw. They saw a commercial vehicle endangering other people's lives, running a red light, and how they took ownership of their mistake by flipping others off.
If you’re a small business owner and you’d like to visit about things like this, how we can make sure that your employees are representing your company in the most professional away. Or, maybe it's you the owner, that we need to talk about! If you're not willing to take ownership of your actions with your logo on your chest on your apparel or on your vehicles, then maybe it's time to not wear the logo.
