Listen to Tom Darley, Anthony Basile and James Darley discuss the lasting family legacy in their family businesses and how they came about. It is common in a family business, that family values help shape the values that ultimately govern the business. It is these unique values that form the foundation of a lasting legacy for a family business.
You know, I grew up in a family with very strong family values, and they really mirror our business values. They’re about fairness, about equality, about doing the right thing.
My goal and dream for the business is to see the fruits of my dad’s labour and our labour continue on and see the company expand as much as possible and I just want to be healthy enough to see it happen down the road.
One of the things that my grandfather wrote on a piece of cardboard back in the 30’s was a phrase that said today say nothing that is not true, nothing that is not kind, nothing that is not useful and nothing that is not necessary. It’s something that I think really sums up who he was and it’s something that we try to emulate today and you know, here it is 80 years later.
