The guy that works the midnight shift stocking shelves can be more valuable than the CEO. The CEO can easily be replaced. The A+ guy stocking shelves is the one I would be concerned if they leave. They have no power.
Yes, the guy that decided to use Jesse James, or who came up with the idea of loaning tools for free, or the free engine check, or the buybacks is great too. He has the power and thankfully we got a good one. But, the issue here, is that those are 4 things you could decide to do before breakfast, if you are 1) honest and 2) a hard worker that has spent their time thinking about improving things.
Enough babbling time to post my shareholder bill of rights.
