I see people holding to their ideals.
My mother Ratana and sister Jyoti gave a talk yesterday at the Social Venture Institute. Jyoti has been championing sustainability at Nature’s Path even before she got her Green MBA. My mom, co-founder of Nature’s Path, steers the company forward with vision, style and a sense of greater purpose. With their beautiful voices and complementary speaking styles, they got a well-deserved standing ovation after their talk.
Here they are today – unintentionally color-coordinated
My mom is uncannily wise. Here is the advice she gave yesterday for making a difference in business. I want to share it with you. I daresay that this advice can be applied to most endeavours:
Mom’s advice number one: Choose the right life mate
Mom’s advice number two: Understand the finances of your company
Mom’s advice number 3: Create a business you belive in and are passionate about
Mom’s advice number 4: Surround yourself with people whom you respect
Mom’s advice number 5: Don’t wallow in mistakes, learn from them and accept and move on
Mom’s advice number 6: Welcome advice from those you trust
Mom’s advice number 7: Don’t compromise your beliefs
