Don’t Work With Jerks: 5 Lessons I Learned From My Dad by Jennifer Dulski


  • In the spirit of Father’s Day, it seemed only fitting that I write a post highlighting some of the terrific lessons I’ve learned over the years from my dad. I’ve already written about this a bit in my post about 5 Mentor Archetypes, since my father is the quintessential “Advisor” – always there in my corner with a story, idea, or tip to help me. I featured a few of his lessons in that post, such as “Always wear your nametag on the right.” That way, when you shake someone’s hand, your nametag faces them – an easy way to make sure you present yourself well to new people. I consider myself very lucky to have grown up with my dad. He has always been a terrific male role model who believed in me, told me I could do anything, and taught me so many things – everything from 60s labor folksongs to the difference between growth and value stocks.
