David Albritton’s VlogViews:
“People have to believe what they’re hearing out of your mouth. It’s not only your employees, it’s your consumers, it’s everybody that engages you. So being authentic, being true to your brand, true to your ethos and just being true to the product and services that you’re providing.”
“I learn as much from the people that I mentor as I hope they learn from me. Because they are experiencing different things and are on different paths in their career that maybe I have not experienced. I can carry that forward.”
