Here’s a great quote from Ray Kroc, the entrepreneur who took over the McDonald’s corporation in 1954 and built it into the most successful fast food operation in the world. Ray said, “I didn’t invent the hamburger. I just took it more seriously than anyone else.”
Right now, countless companies, including our clients, are thriving in these challenging times. They’re building buildings, managing money, manufacturing goods, fixing computers, running restaurants, managing properties, distributing goods, and providing services. The list goes on.
These companies excel despite numerous competitors, tough economic conditions, and pricing pressures. Why? Because they take their businesses seriously and run them very well.
