Replied to “Thinking about your life journey, who are the people who have inspired you?” (andreastringer.blogspot.com) So, when asked this question about ‘who are the people who have inspired you?’, I decided not to list those people (or name drop) but to describe the characteristics of those who inspire me and who I aspire to be. Successful without sacrificing integrity Place people before profit Generous with their time Build relationships & connections (established & new) Listen to understand, not to respond. It’s not always about what you can do for them. Genuine & Authentic. How they act in public is who they are. This is such a nice reflection. It has me wondering what characteristics would make up my list and how I myself might stack up against all of this.
