Do You Believe? I believe the first principle of business--the one that shapes every single decision you make from the moment you decide that a business of your own is something you truly wish to create--is that your business must be able to grow. ~ Michael E. Gerber Do you believe?
Dream of Growth Do you have a dream for your business?
“I can’t do that I don’t have any extra time.” “I can’t afford to, but thanks anyway.” “No one will pay that.” “I tried that before, it didn’t work.” “They won’t buy from me, I’m too small.”
