When you've made it to the top, it's easy to tell others to follow your path. But leading entrepreneur John Hewitt has some very different advice, and it comes from His understanding of divine design.
"God gives everyone their own skills," the co-founder of tax firm Jackson Hewitt and founder of Liberty Tax Service as well as the franchise collaborative Loyalty Brands tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. But it goes farther than that, Hewitt says. God wants us to be extraordinary.
"I love the Michael Jordan story—Michael Jordan, greatest basketball player ever," Hewitt says.
But Jordan grew up wanting to play baseball, Hewitt explains. "So he retired from basketball. He was being paid $5 million a year to play basketball, and he was overpaid at $18,000 a year to play baseball; it was horrible."
Hewitt says he uses that story in firing people at times, telling them, "You need to find somewhere else to go be extraordinary. God gave us all a place where we can be extraordinary. Go find that place."
But in that place of extraordinary, integrity matters, Hewitt says. "Integrity is doing what you say you're going to do. And if you always do what you say you're going to do, you're going to be wildly successful.'
