Description

At our office space here at Array Digital, there are very few open parking spots. We have 3 reserved spots that say they are reserved for Array Digital and our guests, but that's it. Listen in to Erik on today’s episode of Journey to $100 Million to learn why none of these spots are reserved specifically for Erik or Kevin. At the start of working at our current office space, Erik would park in the same spot every day. Because of this, some employees were passing on that parking spot even if they got to the office before Erik, although the spot was not reserved specifically for him.

This was not how Erik wanted it to be, so he put the message out that if you get to the office first, you get to park in the best spot. Erik has never been a fan of entitlement for a CEO, C-Suite, or any executive at all. He feels that everything in business should be based on merit. If he does not get to the office first, he does not get the premier parking spot - if he doesn’t chime into where we are going for company lunch, the team gets to choose. No one should ever feel entitled just because you started or are running a company. Everyone should have a say, and no one should treat you like a king/queen just because of your title. The lesson here is: drop the entitlement, no one likes it!
