Each year, the Suttons, Starks and Hansens all pack up their families for a partner retreat and we head north to Elk Ridge Resort, a true Saskatchewan gem, for a weekend getaway. It is a very rewarding time for our families to connect and enjoy some of the great winter activities Saskatchewan can offer.
This year’s chapter brought some icy temperatures, but our resident ski experts the Starks guided us on another epic adventure. Their skiing experience and knowledge of those trails brings comfort to us all in knowing we will have fun and be safe in the frigid temperatures. Once again it did not disappoint!
It reminded me of a story I heard recently of an 18- year-old Florida man who was arrested for pretending to be a licensed doctor.
He had opened his own office in West Palm Beach, where he performed physical exams and offered medical advice. His website identified his clinic as a staff of alternative medical professionals that create a holistic care plan for patients.
They weren’t seeking to fool anyone. They were sincerely trying to help people.
Yet, they had no rigorous training. No proven experience.
Would you hire someone who was sincere, but lacked training and experience?
Of course, not.
How about this… would you hire an employee who studied part-time, yet didn’t have training and experience in your industry?
