This is Uncle Ralph checking in.
Who am I? I’m a creation of Del Chatterson. He’s too humble to offer all this advice and insight himself so he has created this pseudonym. Remember Mark Twain? And how about Samuel Clemens, why was he hiding behind a pseudonym?
I am a composite character of all the best managers that Del has ever met or learned from. He attributes to me all the best advice he has ever received from colleagues, associates, employees, customers, competitors, teachers, writers and his parents. I have learned more lessons from experience than he or any other one person will ever learn for themselves. Or as his sister puts it, “learn from the mistakes of others, you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.”
So I will offer wise words of advice and counsel to business owners, managers, entrepreneurs and executives without any inhibitions, humility or modesty. I will moderate the e2eforum and facilitate discussion between business peers and expert advisors. My intent is to to help improve people’s business performance and their personal lives. I am optimistically ambitious about what we can accomplish together.
Until the next time ….
