Surround Yourself

If you tell your children to be selective about who they put around them, then why don’t you? They say we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with. If you say this is true, do you intently put the best around you?

JD Rockefeller stated his secret to success was “I surrounded myself with people smarter than me.” Evaluate your leadership team and think of their influence on you and their team members down the line.

It matters.
