JAMIE: What three things would you tell a young per­son who aspires to be­come a CEO?

BC Business Magazine - - Leadership -

1

Show up prop­erly on the front end of your busi­ness and the back end. The front end [is what] peo­ple can see; the back end is just as im­por­tant—the fi­nan­cial side, the op­er­a­tions side, your sys­tems, your poli­cies. If the back end of the busi­ness is there, it's go­ing to help you show up prop­erly on the front end.

2

Be easy to do busi- ness with. If you're easy to do busi­ness with, peo­ple want to come back. It seems so sim­ple, but it's one of the hard­est things to do.

3

Con­tinue to push your­self. I think I learn some­thing new ev­ery day I'm here, from ev­ery­body, too. If you're con­stantly push­ing your­self, it keeps that pas­sion go­ing. I think that's ev­ery­thing, be­cause I love to fight for the brand.
