As we enter this Father’s Day weekend, it’s fitting to reflect on all the ways our dads prepared us for the workforce—from teaching us to mow the lawn, to the importance of a nap afterwards. Forbes spoke to a number of entrepreneurs about how their fathers shaped their professional lives. One of our favorites is from Daniel Lubetzky, founder of KIND Healthy Snacks:
“My father survived the Holocaust, emigrated to Mexico, and educated himself by buying used encyclopedias and reading them cover to cover. His experiences taught me the importance of persistence and having a resilient mindset. From an early age, I saw him working hard on his business. Witnessing his work-ethic and optimistic outlook on life inspired me to become an entrepreneur and try to improve our world through business.”
