I love dogs...like a lot. It drew me to a company that I loved, and helped me learn the hard knocks of life growing a Franchise Brand. This is Jet and Blaze, my two dogs that have been there for me through thick and thin and continue to be my office mates every minute I can have them around.
I think the loyalty of a dog represents a lot about business relationships that work the best. It should be a no-brainer that your staff makes your business their own and takes accountability for it's success. People that are not engaged or happy at your business will self select out and the ones that are in it for the long haul will be in it with you no matter what happens in our economy or in your business.
