Your Mother’s Fix-It Gene

Wharton Professor Adam Grant has built a fantastic career by being as helpful to others as he can. His work demonstrates that the most successful businesses do this too. According to yesterday’s New York Times magazine cover story, Grant attributes his work and his success to his “mother’s fix-it gene.”

I recommend that you read the article here.

Most mothers have fix-it genes, right? It develops soon after giving birth. We want to create a better world for our children.

My mother not only wanted to fix-it for her kids, other family members and friends, but also for society. That drive led her to great success as an Indiana State Senator and AG Edwards Investment Advisor.

The psychology of a mother’s fix-it gene is deeply embedded in Make It Better Media too. We believe deeply in the power of mamma and built our company to do well as we do good and help moms.

Do you have examples of what your own mother’s fix-it gene has influenced? If so, please share them with me.

Thank you.
