* “Get the right people on your bus in the right seats, and get the wrong people off your bus.”

Laundy picked up this advice from Jim Collin’s book Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies.

“He speaks to the need for a single vision and people who are aligned with your mission,” Laundy said. “If you get the right people who believe in your core values and the people they work with, then they’re self-motivating and excited to be part of a cohesive team creating something great.”

For Laundy, this advice “seems intuitive” and reinforces his company’s mission statement: “Growth of our people, growth of our clients, and all else follows.”

“If you really believe in it and really practice it, it leads to a lot of success,” Laundy said.
