This chapter focuses on influences that helped to mold and shape those core values within Washington which are root to his entrepreneurial philosophy including organized system for working, the philosophy of labor, and high moral standards. The chapter analyses Washington's exposure to various environmental factors to underscore his core values. On one level, looking at the initial introduction to the Protestant work ethic and his exposure to business expansion in the South, help to underscore his core values. On another level, practical business influences on Washington are analyzed, such as his observation and evaluation of local and national entrepreneurs and his exposure to accounting methods and procedures.
