Congratulations to Orchid’s own, David Huffman for the article about
him in this month’s AJM magazine. The article is Shop Smarts. In
it, he explains his business philosophy of paying his employees as
much as he can and making them feel like partners in the business. I
realize this flies in the face of modern thinking where companies try
to see how little they can pay their employees. His guys would kill
for him. Not many bosses could say that. I’ve e-mailed David on
several occasions and he’s always willing to take the time to share
his knowledge and experiences with others, even those he’s never met.
Anyway, it’s a well written article and I hope you read it. He shows
a common sense approach to running a business.
