This past Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day. When it comes to the teacher of great life lessons, we can all likely agree that our Moms 10154054_631540936901883_4868044638247855528_nwere our first (and perhaps) our best teachers. As we move into adulthood and business ownership, there are some life lessons that we can put into place that would be Mom-approved.

In my virtual accounting business here are some of the lessons I carry through to my team:

  • Ask impactful questions. Ask questions that are nonjudgmental and that are sincere. Don’t focus on the perfect answer but instead on the information provided by the person you’re speaking with.
  • Be a good listener. I’ve hear it said many times, “God gave us two ears and one mouth so we can listen twice as much as we speak.” If you listen and are emotionally engaged, you will gain an understanding and likely come to a solution.
  • Details are important. Did your mom have great maternal instincts? Did she always seem to know whether you were lying or you were hurting? Did she always find a way to keep you on track or get you back on track? Utilize her attention to detail in your business endeavors and chances are you will go far!

What lessons did you learn early in life that are helping you today to succeed in business?
