I recently interviewed Charles Ballenger, owner of Ballengers Furniture and developer of the Spring Creek Village shopping center in Edmond.
I love talking to Mr. Ballenger. He just has such high standards. He traveled the world to create the look of his shopping center, what he calls a mix of European flair and territorial influences. He’s also one of the most conscientious leasors I’ve ever talked with. He not only researches his tenants but he gets to know them personally, spends a lot of time finding out what drives them. If they are successful, that leads to his success.
As I was glancing through my notes from our interview, one quote really stuck out to me.
“If you put enough investment into something, your heart and soul will follow.”
I know he was referring to business, but it seems like a pretty good motto for life as well. Thanks for the lesson Mr. Ballenger.
