Yesterday was Mother's Day, so I thought it would be useful to review the timeless lessons about business (and life) that your mom shared with you, probably more than once. I wrote something like this a while back, but I like this list better:
Taking risks is a big part of life, but it's always a good idea to think twice before you take them.
Never badmouth your competitors, your customer's competitors and especially your other customers.
While opportunities may drop in your lap, taking advantage of them always requires hard work.
Most workplace hassles are the result of people NOT following this simple but universal rule.
What's the point of having money if you don't have your health? Eating healthy foods should be part of every success plan.
Whenever possible, spend at least some of your workday out of your office and breathing the fresh air.
It's all too easy to ignore the small expenses that, when added up, can destroy your profitability.
Most of us spend WAY too much time glued to our computer screens, our tablets and our cell phones. Take break!
Like it or not, people judge you by what you're wearing and how you wear it. Be mindful of the effect you're having.
The world does not owe you a living and you'll have to play the cards that you get dealt, so make the most of it.
