Do you have a philosophy for how you run your business? Maybe you do. Maybe you haven't given it too much thought. I mean who has time for philosophizing when you can barely keep up with all the stuff you have to do every day? Even if you don't have your personal belief statement engraved in brass and mounted on the wall behind your desk (and if you do, I'd love to see that!), you probably have a general idea of how you like to do things, of what you think is right, and how you approach challenges. That right there, my friends, is a business philosophy. And I'm guessing you do have one.
Now that we've cleared that up, how's your business philosophy working for you? Is it helping you get where you want to go? I shared some quotes and advice this week that I like and that remind me of how I want to conduct business. It's simple advice, like giving people more than they expect, being generous, paying attention to your financials regularly, figuring out the big stuff first before you tackle the details. All things that make for a positive and meaningful business philosophy.
Be Oh So Quotable This Week!
