Rick Bowmer, Associated Press
Being a missionary is good preparation for doing business in a foreign country, according to an article that ran Tuesday on Forbes.com.
“The skills I learned almost 20 years ago as a missionary have been invaluable to my career as an entrepreneur,” Forbes contributor Joshua Steimle, who served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Manaus, Brazil, wrote in his article titled “How a Mormon mission prepared me to open a foreign office.”
In the article, Steimle lists the various skills learned on his mission that he believes contributed to his successes in business, ranging from the values of hard work to learning to trust a business partner.
“As a missionary I hoped something I did during those two years would last,” he writes toward the conclusion of the piece. “Likewise as an entrepreneur I frequently ask whether anything I’m doing has lasting value.”
