Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Business Lessons I Learned from My Mother

« Conversations Build Reputations... and Brands | Main | Ask Away: Storytelling in Marketing, Mark Goren -- Part One »


Catherine -- I cannot even begin to imagine what it must have been like to have your mother ill. When we start losing out health, we begin to appreciate how much more we have inside and never get to use. We are love. Most of what I described about mom I learned by observing.

Bob -- it reads like a lot of very sound advice, useful both at work and in life. So that we can make a life that works. Mothers are so wise that way.

This is the closest thing that relates to business...but Ma taught me this - it might take a while to come to a decision, it might be right or wrong...but once you make it - own up to it and deal with it. No excuses - you made the decision.

That along with treating everyone as you'd wish to be treated :) - and using your head for more than a hat rack!

Three wonderful things we must do.

My mom was sick for a very long time, so her "pearls of wisdom" stopped while I was a girl. Love was important to Mom. Mom shared love with all of us and many others as well.

One thing I learned from all the folks who stepped in and filled a sick mom's shoes, take good cues from everyone. Don't copy them, their way is a guide to doing something new your own way.

Thanks Valeria!
