businessRecently, Inc. published an interesting article explaining the lessons one business owner learned while taking his dog with him to the office every day.

"She came to the office with me every day since the day after we brought her home. I realize now that my life and career as an entrepreneur have been shaped by her presence," David Evans wrote.

In a wonderful tribute to his dog, Evans shared the lessons he learned from her. They include:

1. Train your people.

2. Be consistent and persistent.

3. Incentivize.

4. Stop taking everything so seriously.

5. You have a home. Use it.

6. Running a business is easier with a partner.

7. Work as hard to touch lives outside your business as you do in it.

8. Distrust the mailman.
