Teach others to fish…

No we aren't talking about grabbing your fishing rod and heading down to the river (although you should do that too!). We are are talking about as a business owner, you should teach your employees and fellow entrepreneurs about what you know. As you hire new employees, you need to be willing to teach them –

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."

If you keep your knowledge to yourself, you miss the opportunity to not only educate your fellow peers but also making your business the best it can be. As entrepreneurs we should want to share what we know or what we've learned from our own mistakes.

Has there been someone in your life that taught you how to fish that has made you the person you are today? Go tell them thank you.
