What I’ve Learned: Bill Brown

Founder and Chairman, Bill Brown Sales & A.L.P. Lighting Components

Bill Brown

The average person can’t work for me.  By definition, I require above-average people because you need above average people to have an above-average company.
 
People around me are always asking me why I haven’t retired by now.   I’m really working because I don’t have any retirement skills.
 
I don’t resist change; I encourage it.
 
Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.   It’s the Golden Rule.
 
I had one competitor tell me that because I work harder than other people, I’m an unfair competitor.
 
My father always said that if you want to succeed faster than the other fella, you have to out-produce him.
 
I’m not an 8 hour a day guy. I don’t punch the clock, I stay at work until I feel I’ve gotten the job done as best I could.  I then start over again the next day.
 
My dad had a tavern; he worked 7 days a week.  Sunday was his short day---he worked from 12 noon to 9 p.m. at night. I feel if I work 6 days a week, I’ve got an advantage compared to him.
 
Take nothing for granted.
 
The only way I can help people is to help people improve their standard of life; when I help them, it helps me improve my standard of life.




Testimonials

"I have never met anybody that was more aggressive and detail oriented as Paul Pompeo. After Paul placed me at a reputable lighting firm, he continued to call monthly to checkup on my progress. This showed me that he has a lot of commitment toward the people that he worked with. I consider Paul to be not just a recruiter, but also a friend."
