Have you heard Chik-Fil-A owner’s Truett Cathy’s success story? It’s very inspirational, especially to a teenage micro business. Mr Cathy closes his business on Sundays in order to keep his priorities in place. You too may need to place the demands of your micro business aside in order to keep your other priorities like homework, family, faith and friends straight.
“I was not so committed to financial success that I was willing to abandon my principles and priorities. One of the most visible examples of this is our decision to close on Sunday. Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and of directing our attention to things that mattered more than our business.”
Chick-fil-A is the only major fast-food restaurant chain to be closed on Sundays, one of the busiest days of the week in the restaurant business. Despite being closed on Sundays, Truett Cathy has led Chick-fil-A on an unparalleled record of 38 consecutive years of sales increases, with its core free-standing restaurants achieving higher sales per unit in six days (with shorter operating hours) than most major chains in the industry.
