What They’re Thinking: Judy L. Klipsch
My first job in this industry was as my husband’s partner when we bought the company in September 1989. I was a professional model from 16 to 35, but I continued my education in marketing and public relations and advertising.
My third grade teacher, Mrs. Anderson, taught me that being smart was a very important and valuable thing to be as a little girl. I’ve kept that my whole life. A lot of things can inspire you, but for someone to recognize your intelligence and ability, that sets your direction in life.
Whether it’s with an employee or a dealer or anyone you’re dealing with in business, be fair in negotiating. Try to be fair so that it isn’t always to your advantage or always to their advantage.
