Earlier this week, we asked our employees to share with us some bit of advice they got from their dads. In turn, we thought we’d share these words of wisdom with you. From the practical to the silly, they are a great reminder for us to say thanks to our dads this weekend for all they do for us.
“The day before I got married my Dad pulled me aside and said, ‘Before you go I need to teach you a couple of things: 1) how to change a flat tire because every girl needs to know how to change a tire and 2) how to make a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce because the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! ‘”
-Kirsten, Customer Service
“My dad, the founder of Jacquart Fabric Products once told me, ‘Once you start working 12 hours a day, your luck will change.'”
“My dad always told me while in the car and a deer crosses, ‘When there’s one, there’s two.’ I frequently find myself repeating him now when I see a deer, and of course once the second deer crosses, I feel that it’s “okay” to continue. (Until that third one runs across one day!)”
-Katie, Customer Service
“Always have a firm handshake.”
-KJ, Key Accounts
“My dad was a man of very few words and I learned from him over the years by simply watching what he would do rather than what he would say. He treated everyone with respect, therefore, he was respected. He was indeed a legendary dad.”
-Joel, Sales Manager
We’d love to know what you’ve learned from your father in the comments below. In the meantime, Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
