Today’s Message is: “Surround Yourself Day!” Why Not?


“To be an effective leader you know that success depends on your ability to surround yourself with people that have expertise in many different areas. So, what if they’re smarter than you. Go out and recruit the brightest people that will compliment your leadership style and bring attributes that will cause you to rise to a higher level. When you invite smarter people to the leadership round table it makes you better and they bring new concepts, ideas, and networking. Get fired up and surround yourself with the right people to keep that fire ignited!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I am fortunate to have learned, from early on, to surround myself with great people because the outcome was sure to be awesome. I also learned that giving credit to the team’s efforts and accomplishments, that made the mission successful. This fostered a cohesive and unified atmosphere. One can never go wrong, to surround themselves with the right people. You will be recognized for the kind of leader that you are, or will become. Have a blessed day today and al

A lesson that I learned early in my career is that you can only be as good as the people you surround yourself with. Most importantly, it's a decision entirely up to you.
