1) Words of Wisdom

1) Words of Wisdom: ( Approximately 50 - 75 words)

Have you benefitted from a great business saying that has stood the test of time? Perhaps you've come up with your own rendition of that saying and made it more meaningful for today. Why not put that saying into your own words now!

Here's your opportunity to put a new spin on some of those age old classics of business wisdom. For example: Old saying: "You can't sell from an empty wagon." New spin: "Empty store shelves won't satisfy anyone." ( We are very confident that you can do much better than that!)


  1. I remember hearing a comment from a very successful retailer in the U.S.A. (and I'm sure that it was coined much earlier by someone else) ... it was: "RETAIL is DETAIL".

    In other words, it's focusing on the little things that you do in your business that can make the BIG difference in the outcome. Will your business be successful or will it fail to win the support of a loyal customer base?

    If you make sure that you satisfy and delight the clients who come to you and try your products or services, you are much closer to having them return and bringing others with them!

  2. "You can't manage what you don't measure." (unknown source) If you can't measure something then you can't manage it or systematically improve it. This idea ties in with SMART goals and continuous improvement. Other fave business quote of mine come from Drucker, who coined the term 'knowledge workers' and predicted their meteoric rise in addition to the development of the concept of the 'internet' ('a network of computers connecting the world' - 1983).
