Learning to Do What You Say…
Sometimes others become like a dad in our life. It happened to Brandon with Alzie the cook.
Brandon Steiner is a best selling author, gifted speaker and head of New York-based Steiner Sports. He is also a big-hearted guy and wonderful friend.
In Brandon’s words:
“Aside from my mother, who taught me most of what I know about business, my most influential mentor was Alzie Jackson, the head chef at Camp Sussex in New Jersey, where I spent many summers – first as a camper, and then as an employee, in Alzie’s kitchen.
Alzie might have taught me the most important lesson there is to learn in business: How to build trust. If you don’t have people’s trust, they’ll never want to work for you, or buy from you.
After a few years of working my way up the kitchen ladder, I was Alzie’s right-hand man one summer. I was responsible for making all the soups, and making sure dinner was served on time.
