There are always a few opportunities in your business life that cause a tidal wave of changes in how your future works out for you. Certainly which college you chose to attend and what career path you choose. And there are personal factors that play big roles, such as the person you marry, the children you have, and the friends with whom you hang out. The one business skill that tops them all is your choice of company for whom you work. Make the right choice and it could lead to great fame and fortune. Make the wrong choice and you will wallow in despair for decades to come.
