Paul’s stories of success through kindness

SMALL BUSINESS, BIG HEART

We’re told that to succeed you have to be tough. But there’s better way. Compassion, community, giving second chances, and listening to others actually works in life and in business. Small Business, Big Heart tells the inspirational story of Sal and Cindy Rubino, restaurant owners whose marriage was nearly destroyed by that brutal business. They reinvented themselves, putting decency and family first, and profits followed. Desperate for workers, they started intentionally hiring refugees and people in addiction recovery, and discovered a workforce that was dedicated, creative, resilient, and quick to buy into Sal and Cindy’s vision for excellence. It wasn’t easy—there are language barriers, and addiction relapses. Sal and Cindy responded by developing management techniques that not only redefined their business’s bottom line, but changed their lives for the better.
