“How do you identify someone who needs encouragement? That person is breathing.” S. Truett Cathy, founder of @chickfila
Well, if you didn’t know this is a Christian account you do now! 🤣
We eat at Chik-fil-a A LOT. I feel like they’re all always busy, they all have amazing people, and you don’t feel awful for having picked up some food from there. I went through a period where I was reading a ton of autobiographies; usually about people who started businesses. I was always struck that about halfway through the book I would inevitably come to a section where the author would say something like “about this time I went through my first divorce.” Now I’m not making a blanket statement about divorce but what was clear in almost every situation was the marriage failed at the expense of the business. I appreciated how Cathy was able to not only able to build a remarkable business but was also able to keep his marriage intact. It’s inspiring to me when the positive values of the business match the positive values of the person.
I own a (very tiny) business and I feel like the measure of success isn’t how much money it makes, but how closely it can adhere to it’s values. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of money is super helpful; I just don’t want to earn it at the expense of losing the important things. 🙌🏼
And now it’s time for waffle fries; making this made me so hungry! 😅
