Today I had the pleasure of speaking with entrepreneur and owner of the Sheldon Restaurant Group, Spence Sheldon. Spence grew up in Kentucky as an active kid, then after college realized that performance would never take him to where he wanted to be. Spence learned the art of humility and servant leadership which led him to open his first successful pizza restaurant and eventually a not for profit Almost Home Clothing.
Let's dive into Spence’s story about how becoming the most humble version of yourself can inspire your team and everyone around you.

"You do have a sense of pride opening a business, but the TRUE JOY is giving it away.” - Spence Sheldon
“How I get my troops to rally is I dive in. They’ve got to understand how much I care about them as individuals long before I ever care about a business.” - Spence Sheldon
“We all got ignored when we didn’t want to be, somebody didn’t listen when it would’ve been cool if they did, we didn’t get that compliment when it would’ve been awesome if that person gave it… If I can be that person for someone, I think I’ve won.” - Spence Sheldon
