Learning How to Run Your Business

Stephen L. Capper, along with his wife, Nora, and their daughters, Jami and Toni, owns and operates A-1 Awards, Inc. in Indianapolis. He has been associated with the awards and recognition industry for over 45 years, and has given numerous seminars since 1979.

We spend a great deal of our time learning how to operate machines and studying techniques, but knowing how to run a business gets forgotten about more often than not. Learning to run your business is far more valuable than learning to run a machine. Nearly anyone can be taught to run a machine, but running a business is a unique talent.
