Peachtree Corners recently welcomed a new car wash business to the city and judging by the name, it’s a pretty big deal.

Town leaders celebrated the business’ arrival more recently, however, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

One of the most fraught challenges that an entrepreneur can face is the management of employees. Plenty of books have been written on the subject; plenty of classes have been taught. But it’s only when you’re suddenly sharing an office full of millennials with their own distinct personalities, strengths, weaknesses and dreams — each of whom is looking to you for leadership — that the real learning begins.
