I’ve always believed that if it weren’t for the employees and the customers, business would be a breeze!
Actually, I’m pretty good with the customers. But I am the world’s worst boss. Ask any of my former employees. I was overbearing, tending to micro-manage, praised when I should have kicked butt, and kicked butt when I should have shut up. These days, I have no employees (unless you count Rocky the Boxer and Toni the Golden Retriever), but I did learn a few things along the way.
My point? Hire quality, hire it slowly, and, when you’re sure you have the right people on board, give them a pat on the head and a twist in the right direction … and get the heck out of their way. — jri

The happier his people
The more a leader struts and brags
The sorrier his people.”
