In business and in life, very few things are accomplished without the help of others. This is a lesson that Patti Labelle obviously missed.
In case you missed it, in the last week, Patti's Labelle's Pies have sold out all over the United States. Most of us know this was due to the hilarious video that a fan of the pies posted to social media because there was very little public discussion of the pies prior to the video.
But when Patti was asked about the success of her pies and if it was due to the video, Patti's response was “she did it all herself. The pies were selling out before the video.”
There is a lot to be said about being humble and giving credit when it is due. A small mention of her gratitude towards James for making the video and the boost it provided to sales would not have taken away from her input and success of the pie sales.
It is always important to give credit to others when it is due or it is likely people will think twice when they have an opportunity to help in the future.
Here is the full one-minute video of Patti discussing the pie sales. Take a peek and let us know what you think?
Is she wrong? Should she have given James more credit?
