Give the kid a chance

I'm a baseball fan and love nothing more than seeing my favorite team, The Phillies, parade a young prospect onto the field and give him a chance to be a star.

Too often in Major League Baseball, as well as in Little League, the established star plays while the young kids sit the bench. You can learn from watching others play the game, but you can only learn so much.

That's what we need to do in business, let the kid play. Throw the kid out there and let him learn in the pressure, in the situation. Yes, there will be errors, but if the kid has what it takes, he'll work on those.

Otherwise, he can only dream of the day he takes the field as his bottom is getting sore from sitting on the bench.
