23. Walker & Associates Insurance Agency: For nearly 40 years, drivers along East Washington Street have found amusement or inspiration in the sayings on the outdoor sign at this family-owned insurance company. President Doug Walker says his father, 89-year-old Doug Sr., still calls in some of the sayings, but they also sometimes originate with customers. Some are from famous people and some are original. Some recent sayings: “Being over the hill beats being under it,” “People inspire you or they drain you. Pick them wisely,” and “Old ways won’t open new doors.”

April 2014, Canadian Business (Toronto, ON), “The Suits Loosen Up” by Arshy Mann, pg. 12:

A small sign is taped onto a steel door: “Old ways won’t open new doors.” It’s a fitting motto for the nine-year-old outfit, which is part of a new breed of small, nimble law firms thriving at a time when traditional corporate firms are seeing their profits squeezed or-as in the case of Heenan Blaikieeven outright collapse.

Business tip: Old ways won’t open new doors. There are so many businesses out there just doing the things they were doing in the 1990s and they are not embracing technology.
