You can always tell the people who lead by example, they are the ones that would never ask an employee for example to do anything that they would not do themselves.
First boss I ever worked for was a person like that. He was the owner of several fast food restaurant locations in the area I grew up and chances are on a given weekday he would be at one of them.
One day he showed up to our store to drop off some kind of paperwork and saw that we were backed up darn near out the door because of a series of school buses that had come into the parking lot about two minute after he arrived.
He was the owner, and the first thing that he thought to do was to put an apron on and go behind the food assembly line and begin asking me how many of what needed to be put down. He became an extra hand that allowed us to get through an insanely difficult portion of the day just a little bit easier.
I wish more politicians were like that man. There are so many politicians that talk about sympathizing with people and being for the little guy, meanwhile they have the liquid worth of some major companies and wouldn’t know what the little guy is going through if it bit them.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was spotted on Thursday vacationing at a five-star resort in Hawaii despite an ongoing battle in Washington D.C. which has led to a government shutdown.
Pelosi is spending the Christmas holiday at The Fairmont Orchid resort on Hawaii’s big island, according to The Washington Free Beacon. A standard room at the luxury resort starts at just under $1,000 per night and accommodation can cost nearly $5,000 per night for the presidential suite.
The oceanfront resort boasts six restaurants, a golf course and a “Spa Without Walls” where a couple’s massage runs as high as $569.
The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, however, with a 51 seat majority, Republicans fell short of the 60 votes needed to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to kill the legislation on arrival in the Senate, and consequently, a government shutdown has been in effect since funding expired Dec. 21.
Pelosi and Schumer issued a joint statement on Christmas Eve accusing Trump of “plunging the country into chaos,” and holding the president solely responsible for the shutdown.
Trump, however, cancelled his trip to Florida so that he would be available in D.C. in the event that Congress would reach a deal to fund the government.
“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security,” Trump tweeted.
“At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”
