Importance of looking out for others.

One of the best things that a reader takes from this book is the importance of a company's core values. Not only is having core values important, but sticking to these valuse at all cost. Too often in business people are always looking out for number one, Dallen realized early on that when you look out for others you will win in the end. One of the best examples he relays is when he took over the Fairmonte Foods plant. He came across the union sturd who was a grumpy old lady. Rightly so, she had been burned by the management before and was not going to let it happen again. This did not stop Dallen, he constantly reached out to her on a daily basis. After awhile she warmed up to him and they became friends. This is the type of management which makes a company strive ahead. No wonder Merry Maids became the leader in the industry so quickly. His style of leadership reminds me of Servant Leadership, always putting others before yourself.

Honest example of how God uses and blesses people.

I know Dallen and his wife personally, and they were serving the Lord and helping people in their daily lives, before God blessed them with financial success. This is truly a heart warming testimony of a couple that places spiritual values above all else, and how their business success is only one facet of how they continue to help people.
