THE HUMBLE BEGINNING
Hello, this is Joseph Land, and welcome to my podcast today. I’m so excited about this format as we have these podcasts going forward and, they’re designed to encourage you and to be all that you can be and encourage you to go for your dream.
And certainly, that’s my case. And, but you know what? I learned that I serve a God of second chances and third chances and fourth chances and a God of forgiveness. And so, I’ve always done this – when I’ve had failure and disappointment in my life, I’ve always dusted myself off and prepared myself to go again.
And so you measure your words carefully. Be a positive influence – be the positive influence in the room when everybody’s negative.
I learned from that – to be a blessing to others and to teach others what I’ve had to learn the hard way. But when I got started in business, I want to share this with you, and then I’m gonna, conclude. I realized I was not in the transportation business at all. I realized that I was in the people business and I realized that people drove trucks, people bought products, people did everything.
And I had to get really good at relating to people and being the best person I could be so that I could be successful in my business. And I worked on myself because I knew I had to relate from the CEO of Pillsbury down to the person who’s loading the truck. And that’s what I did.
And I encourage you if you’re pursuing a job or a career if you’re pursuing – starting your own business. The first thing you need to do is decide I’m going to be the best person I can be. I’m going to work on myself. I’m going to understand how to do what it is I want to do. I’m going to school myself if I want to get into business. I’m going to school myself with learning how financial statements work, how to capitalize a company, how accounts receivable work, all of those things, the balance sheet, learn all of that stuff, and educate yourself so that you can be the best person you can be.
But the one thing that…
So I wanted to share this with you today. I’m very excited about the prospects of telling you more about my story. This is certainly just a capsule today. We’ll have podcasts here, stay tuned, to this medium we’ll have other people joining us. Who I have dealt with or partnered with, or a mentor in business who have great success stories.
