Be Honest, Ethical and Kind

Making it in business relies on the integrity of the business owner. In the long run it pays to be honest, ethical and kind. Honesty means never having to watch your back, being ethical keeps your conscience in tune and being kind will build a client and staff base that will be there for the long term. Greed and lack of ethics has led us to the unfortunate situation that we are in today.

Be a Self-Starter

When you see a problem or a need what do you do? Many people say, "It's not my problem, its X's problem".

Successful people say, "Here is a problem, excellent, now I can find a solution.

Every problem is a solution building opportunity. As they say, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going!!".

Use problems as a growth goad. The best business people have become successful by having a toolbox of solutions that they can apply to problems. There are very few new problems, just different and more innovative solutions. If people could see this, they would say, that problem is mine!!
