    Entrepreneurial Moment – Bill Hornbeck – none today

    3fc93377-8e78-42ef-b63e-a4e5b5d5a475Carol told an anecdote that underscores the importance of character in our personal lives and in our business affairs:   A family was together at the veterinarian’s office mourning the death of the family dog.  Someone asked why dog’s lived so much shorter lives than humans.  The youngest child offered this explanation – Dog’s come into the world loving others, sacrificing for others and finding joy in the simplest of things.  Humans by contrast take a lifetime to understand the importance of these values.
