  • In many ways, the knowledge gleaned from four years of college does not compare to what a person can learn at infantry school, says successful Texas businessman David M. Smith.
     
    “The Army provided me with more fun and interesting experiences and principles than college. I spent a lot of time in the company of officers and immersing myself in reading military classics,” said Smith, author of “The Texas Spirit.”
     
    Smith says the following aphorism apply to both military and business endeavors.
     
    A good general always has enough troops. Whether you’re a general, lieutenant, private or middle manager – make sure you’re marshalling your resources wisely. For the layperson, that might translate to never making a purchase you can’t afford.
