There’s a fast food chain in America called Wendy’s. Its founder was Dave Thomas, a self-made millionaire who worked for Kentucky Fried Chicken before going off on his own and starting Wendy’s. Dave said the secret of his success was his MBA: but he wasn’t talking about a Master of Business Administration. He was referring to what he called his “Mop Bucket Attitude.” He used to like turning up dressed as one of his employees, doing the sort of jobs they do – like mopping out the toilets. One year he appeared on the cover of the company’s annual report dressed in a work apron holding a mop and a plastic bucket. That picture was built on the fact Dave Thomas liked to teach his employees – the great lesson he had learned from the life and teachings of Jesus – that service comes before success.
