There are pros and cons of experience. A con is that you can't look at the business with a fresh pair of eyes and as objectively as if you were a new CEO.

A leader is admired, a boss is feared.
Vicente del Bosque
If you are a leader, you should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it - young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous - is changed by it.
John C. Maxwell
It will be disastrous when a leader or manager shows up with one attitude one day and treats people with a different attitude the next day.

I still will never quit.
