No one becomes a sergeant without first being a corporal. No one becomes a general without first being a lieutenant. In construction, you begin first as an apprentice, then as a journeyman, then as a contractor and then as a developer.

Great Leaders have learned the value of the process – and don’t quit before the end of the race!
