Danny Meyer is the CO of Union Square Hospitality Group and seems to understand the best way to do business.
If you make people happy they are likely to do business with you and in the same way if you make them happy away from the working environment, they will like you and want to spend time with you. It is your actions that can determine someone’s opinion.
When he said “Business, like life, is about how you make people feel. It’s that simple, and it’s that hard.” Danny Meyer realised that you can either live your life and run your business in a sensible and genuine way or go against that and be a problem.
In either scenario it is clear which way will win. Treat people well and you will not go far wrong either at work or when spending time with family and friends.
