WashingtonExec’s Three Pieces of Advice Series:

“If you could give your kids only three pieces of advice, what would they be?”

Today’s advice is from Mark Chadason, Senior Vice President and General Manager, National Security Group of MacAulay-Brown, Inc (MacB).

1. The source of inaction is almost always fear, laziness, cynicism or arrogance. Be bold. Don’t let mediocrity and negative people bring you down.

2.Nurture a “can do” attitude and become a fearless entrepreneur. Start your business with a plan, but execute fast and furiously. Don’t be afraid to fail. If you do, fail fast, learn from it and move forward. Don’t get caught in a cubicle jungle.

3. Avoid arrogance. Lift as you climb! Find a reason greater than reality to motivate you. You must have a strong purpose for living other than financial success.
