My Dad is a very successful owner of several companies in the past 50 years and only just now started using a computer and writing a blog. Today I came across the reasons for his success.
One of these reasons is: "Employees can make or break any business, so treat them with respect. Job satisfaction has little to do with money. Discover what it has to do with and make sure they get it."
Can we please put him in line for the cloning machine? More companies need to be run this way.
A link to his blog for all who are interested. Just a warning, he is religious and not afraid to tell people about it.
