Be Honest About Your Skills

For Owl there were times when he had suspected some of his competitors fluffed up their skills a little bit when speaking with potential customers. They made everything seem a lot better than it actually was. Own didn’t see this as very honest and ethical for any clients coming his way so even if it made some clients run to the business next door, Own slept well at night knowing he was completely honest about what he could and could not do well.

Being Able to Help People

Time and time again Bull forgot that he was doing business when meeting with customers. They were like old friends of his, chatting and talking well into the evening. Of course, each meeting was business but each meeting left him feeling glad he was in this sort of business. At night when there was stacks of paperwork to go over and meetings to figure out for the next day, he thought back on the day and realized that his favorite part of all of this was the joy he got from helping people.

Why be the Same…

Once the business of Boar was up and running he looked around at his town and thought about all the other businesses. Boar had always liked to push the limit and create funky, unique items that sometimes customers were surprised by. Even while surprised his customers always came back looking for the next big thing. So while all the other places near him were doing the traditional thing, Boar decided that running his business the ‘cool’ way, instead of traditional, was the only thing he truly wanted to do.

Receiving Positive Feedback From Clients

For Tortoise, there were so many things he loved about his business. From the products he sold to the hand-delivery method he employed, there was just something so invigorating about how things worked within his world. One night when speaking with his friend Badger, the question of his favorite part of the business came up. Tortoise thought for a long time about this question before answering in a simple, thankful manner, “My favorite part is the cards and notes from my customers in praise of my work. That is what gets me from day to week to month.”

Be a Smart Rebel

Porcupine was of the younger generation than all the other business owners in his area. Since becoming a business owner himself he decided that his business wouldn’t be like any other in town. But before he mixed things up and went the path of a rebel he thought long and hard about whether he could commit to such a title and if being a business rebel was something that had to be done for his business. Knowing that rebelling just for the sake of it would lead to disaster he weighed each option and knew, finally, that his business could only run with a rebel behind the wheel.

Having Absolute Confidence

Like or or not, Bear knew he needed to be confident. Not only because his employees needed it but because Bear wanted it as well.
