Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb and many other world changing inventions including the motion picture camera and the phonograph, said, “The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are; first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.” Spoken like a true mind of innovation. He also believed if an invention would not sell in the world, he did not want to invent it because the use of anything is proof of value to society. I guess the motion picture camera sold pretty well.
In the Title Industry, our goal is to achieve customer assurance, provide great service, and peace of mind. We do that by believing in our teams that stick together through the toughest of problems. The most important part of inventing your company is the people you hire to get the work done. Hiring the right people with the right talents and culture make your company a value over others. I believe Edison would focus on the team as an invention/value worth selling.
