The Intersection of Business and Music

As I pondered what insights to share in my monthly blog, the lyrics sang by the famous Tim McGraw (written by Lori McKenna) came to my mind:

Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you”

Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie

I know you got mountains to climb

But always stay humble and kind

When those dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you

When the work you put in is realized

Let yourself feel the pride

But always stay humble and kind

These words are true for entrepreneurs as well as established corporations. We must establish a corporate culture that respects employees as well as customers. When we achieve our goals – whether it’s revenue, number of followers, winning a large contract, or growing our customer base – we can celebrate and take pride in what we have accomplished but we should hold tightly to what got us there: being humble and kind. Finally as Tim sings, we should mentor and help those following in our footsteps.

When you get where you’re going don’t forget turn back around

And help the next one in line

Always stay humble and kind

“Humble And Kind”
(written by Lori McKenna)
