38. Building A Better Vision for Yourself with Mitzi Perdue

38. In this episode of the 5 Core Life, host Will Moore sits down with Mitzi Perdue a successful businesswoman. Mitzi shares what she learned about leadership from her father, the founder of Sheraton hotels. His goal as a leader was to “give people a better vision for themselves”. She talked about how when her father was buying out hotels during the great depression he would focus his investment first on making all of the employee spaces nice as a way of communicating to his people how important they were. He’d always make them feel like they were apart of this team together and that the whole couldn’t work without them.

Mitzi shares how her father at age 26 was getting married and his own mom told his wife not to marry him because he would end up poor because he couldn’t stick with anything. Later he was then told by a guidance counselor that he should be a research scientist because he had the worst human communication skills the counselor had ever seen. Mitzi’s father took this as a challenge and ended up studying as much as he could about human behavior and the rest is they say is history.

In addition Mitzi shares her own experiences with overcoming obstacles along with the view on mindset that both her father and her husband, the founder of Perdue chicken, share. Mitzi explains how she got into writing and television with no experience doing either. Mitzi and will also describe raising kids and how to make the world a better place.
