Mary Bichelmeyer Lucas, B.D. (Butcher’s Daughter):
There’s a familiar adage that says: Don’t judge a book by its cover. But if Mary is the cover for her new book, then toss this timeworn saying right out the window.
Lucas outwardly exudes the very advice, her innate ability to celebrate and inspire others – add up to a life well lived.
Her endearing story covers the span of 25 years, during which time she begins her career in the staffing industry and rises to senior management with a billion dollar company.
As she climbs the corporate ladder, Lucas is guided by her father’s advice — honed from his own career as a butcher.
She is organized into bites of wisdom summarized into a few quotes from her Father the Butcher. These tidbits include such gems as:
“The first hunk of meat you sell is yourself”,
“If you don’t like someone then they don’t like you”, and
“Don’t get all wrapped up in yourself, because if you are all wrapped up in yourself you make a damn small package.”
Ranging from starting a new job to dealing with difficult clients to addressing how to deal with a negative work environment,
How she helped solve her problems: by going to her grandfather for the titular helpful treats – Lucas manages to impart her father’s unique sensibility: a strong business mind crossed with superbly sympathetic people skills.
You will feel both Lucas’s love and respect for her father, as well as her upbeat outlook on life and desire to help share his message with the world.
Lucas blends a memoir and tribute to her father with effective business management skills and self-help motivation.
“…People from all walks of life and professions, from teachers to business owners and managers will realize that its wisdom can transform the working relationships they have with their staffs.”
She is full of simple philosophy from a humble butcher, but with Lucas’s reverant style, and her father’s ample wisdom, Lunchmeat & Life Lessons has the ability to do just that.
