Knowing how to run a business and making it successful has to do with how you work the system and react to things in a professional way. Danny talks about the ‘homework’ (because you never stop learning, even when you’re done with school) that he and his team have: reading.
The book Work the System, by Sam Carpenter, talks about how to manage a business with an emotionally detached point of view. Which really isn’t heartless, it’s objective for running a business efficiently. One of the best quotes that has helped Danny run his business is about looking at the work from above. The analogy goes something like this:
There are a lot of workers cutting down trees in a forest. They’re working really hard all day for weeks, and then the leader climbs up on of the trees to see their progress and finds out that they’ve been working in the wrong forest all this time. Danny keeps this in mind when working on his business instead of in it.
