Some people enjoy meeting and being photographed with celebrities. I like to meet people who I admire in business. I get to meet them, plus get the chance to learn from them.
A while back, I was invited to a Ben & Jerry’s event and I got to meet Jerry Greenfield, the co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream.
It was such a joy to meet one of the biggest names in the food industry, who continued to remain grounded and down –to-earth. We had a little chat, I told him about my cake business and this is the advice he gave to me:
* Stick to what you believe in
* Keeping working at it
* Enjoy what you do
That’s pretty sound advice from one of the coolest guys in business.
