Asking for help can seem like you are channeling a weakness within yourself. Asking for help is a humbling gesture, as you are admitting that you need something outside of your own expertise. It is rare for a small business owner to “have it all” and cover all their bases. Not every startup is going to have the necessary funds, expertise, and strategies to bring themselves to monetary success. David Howitt, the founder and CEO of “The Meriwether Group” saw the value in providing a multitude of services to small businesses looking to grow, and built a community of professionals to help business do just that. They provide everything from capital funding to business strategies to optimal growth.
Sawyer Howitt, David’s son has already begun his personal journey, seeking to obtain a degree in Entrepreneurial Finance through the University of California, Berkeley.
Observing the work of his father, Sawyer has the opportunity to take responsibility for his forming business expertise, allowing him to become an effective part of the Meriwether Group. It seems as though Sawyer is preparing himself to take over his father’s business one day, and based on his current work that is not a stretch at all to see that become a reality.
Sawyer is making all of the right moves. He is currently focusing his efforts and time on business-related work and internships, and he is seeking a career in the business world. When you think about it, though, he is essentially “asking for help”. He is becoming educated through schooling and his experience. He does not know everything to make a career right now. Everyone is asking for help. People need to learn if they want to grow, and succeed. The future looks bright for Sawyer Howitt, as long as he continues to ask for help so that one day he can provide help to small business depending on the Meriwether Group’s expertise to grow their practice.
