Kirk Newby – Episode 163 – Planting Trees Not Killing Fish

Published by Dan Schmidt on

Too many people treat business decisions like killing fish. Today’s guest explains how he believes this mindset is detrimental to maintaining meaningful connections with the people a business serves. Instead, he claims, every decision should be thought of as planting a tree.

In today’s episode, Tim sits down with Kirk Newby (President of Associated Energy Systems), a legacy maker Tim has long respected. Pulling from his lifetime of experience, Kirk shares some valuable words of wisdom you won’t want to miss.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Kirk has maintained a remarkable relationship with his brother and business partner for over 30 years (this is a lesson in humility).
  • Why things that are worth doing are never easy (this message is especially pertinent to younger people).
  • What must be put in place to be a relationally driven business (this is how to plant trees and not kill fish).

If you want to retire from a thriving legacy business when the time comes, you need to stop running your company like a fishing operation and start viewing it as a tree nursery instead. Listen today to learn how one of our industry’s greats has set himself up for this outcome.
