Dr. Willie Jolley’s principle to win BIG today is “A Lesson In Pride and Prosperity.”
I learned some powerful lessons from working with Ford Motors when I was able to help them go from the brink of bankruptcy to billion-dollar profits. Those lessons are in my book “Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks.” One of those lessons is “don’t let your pride poison your prosperity.” When money gets tight, and in our economy, we must not let our pride get in the way of our prosperity. I share a story in the book about a CEO named Duke Green. I interviewed him and he had built a big company but then as the recession hit, money got tight, so he personally paid his employees out of his own resources rather than himself and supported himself by driving a trash truck at night.

He said he did it in college. If you do it again, he drove that trash truck for a year until the economy got better. And as a result, he was able to keep the people on his payroll and not fire anyone and a few years later, he was able to sell his company for over $500 million. I say to you don’t let your pride poison your prosperity.
