CHAIR’S MESSAGE: Sincerest Form of Flattery

BY THOMAS SANTUCCI

Throughout my life I’ve sought various forms of inspiration for motivation to keep me moving forward in my career. One that comes to mind is the proverb “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

It means someone imitates someone else because they admire the person or values they bring to the table. This holds true when it comes to your business acumen as well.

What are you doing in business that others might want to or have imitated for the betterment of the community? Where might you garner such inspiration? Look no further than within the membership of the Queens Chamber.
