Business Sense column
By Bill Freehling
IDECIDED to devote this column to some lessons I have come across over the past few months from a variety of sources that could be applicable to the local business community.
From a recent lunchtime presentation
From that same speech: When looking to build wealth, seek out markets that are not efficient. Whereas the stock market is highly efficient, particularly large-cap stocks, other investments that aren't as closely watched can provide opportunities for market-beating success.
From observing a construction project: Work as hard as you can every day, but when it's quitting time, it's quitting time. There will always be more work
From a consulting session through Leadership Fredericksburg: Take steps to get outside your comfort zone, even if it's not what your personality type generally trends toward.
From a new book
Southers' book also includes lots of pearls of wisdom about managing a relationship with a supervisor, working effectively out of the office, being a good leader and more.
Got any additional good tips you have learned along the way? Feel free to email me. Maybe they'll show up in a future column.
