I have a number of guiding principals which I use in all my decision making
Make sure you business revenues are greater than your expenses...you will have numerous options if that is the case but if expenses are more than revenues, the business can end with only one unfavorable outcome
If your in a service business (and all of us are) and want to ensure the highest quality of service for your clients be sure your focus is on your employees environment
The decision making process is the most important process in your business, if done rigorously and honestly it will naturally lead to the best outcomes
Use the TQM method of the 5 Whys to get to the core questions and answers
Is it efficient and Effective (Efficiency is doing things right...Effectiveness is doing the right things)
Truly excellent companies have the capacity to focus on their stakeholders not just their shareholders...........(stakeholders include groups such as shareholders, employees, suppliers,owners, management, customers,
QUOTE:In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
Without question, God, the Bible, and my grandfather have been the overwhelming influences for my success. Scriptures, along with reading books and communicating with some of the leaders in my field are at the base of my professional life. My favorite scripture starts with "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he..." because whatever you can conceive in your mind (think - Proverbs 23:7) and believe (Mark 9:23), you will accomplish that and more. Do not doubt your success.
I remember emailing Marshall Goldsmith and asking him how he got started in the leadership development business, and he sent me a manuscript that he had written years ago outlining how he got started! The paper and his email motivated me to keep going to achieve success in the field.
If I could do it over again and start my business from scratch, I would most defintely build a team of likeminded, but more knowledgeable people before I launched the business. Sole proprietors often make the mistake of trying to do everything "solo". You need a team, AND you need to have people who are smarter than you on that team to help you grow your business.

The success influenced by internal drivers would tend to have a more sustainable impact making it an ever green revolving success.
The CEO who really believes that customer's problem is his problem and who believes that he is the right person to solve it for him will no doubt be a win-win type of business owner.
As much you give in form of solutions and unprecedented answers as much growing business you would enjoy.
Good luck to you all.
Sure nothing comes from emptiness , Also situation can play a very important role in work career , Will success comes from different angles , many factors helps to reach success, Now I can say that (CEOs & Founders ) worked hard & climbed the stairs step by step , like working not only in one place or one department but in all departments , from small job to the highest level , Not everybody get the same chance to know & experience everything e,g once my General Manager was discussing the importance of ISO for the company , I asked him to give me the chance handling it , I was in charge ,when I got the certificate I was very happy & understood the meaning of it , then later others were jealous of me being ISO certified , Same thing I used to work hard in order to know other work , Also working in different activities give you deep knowledge .For me I read most of management & marketing books but Iam fond of Drucker books specially ( The Practice of Management , By Peter Drucker ) my favorite Quote by Henry Ford (Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success..Once after I joined the work ,I was in a meeting with General manager , that day he was sick -high temperature ,he insisted to continue - I told him why not to relax & continue next day ,he said ( No life is short tomorrow has its own share , from that day I came to know that never waist time ,The best lesson ever learned , ( if there is a well there is a way ) never say I have complicated problem .
Depending on the definition of success, but having someone believe in me(my mentor), helped develop my inner understanding of having a knowledge that can be shared and of worth to others..
The book 'The Great Game of Business" by Jack Stack was a great influence....too many friends and business acquaintances to mention have helped me along the way ....which is why you cant do it yourself if you are going to succeed....Too many of us owners have difficulty in getting out of our own way at times and why we need someone other than a direct report or family member who will listen to our thoughts and ideas to make better decisions....best of luck to you all in your endeavors....Clem
So many things transformed my business, my belief systems and helped me grow as I succeeded I couldn't even begin to list them on this page. But my answers are as follows:
1) Fake it until you make it (ME)
I bought a Mercedes Benz as my first purchase for the company. My reasoning, as odd as it seems, I needed to hustle to pay for it. And if I didn't hustle I would fail and failing was NOT an option. Hence, fake it til you make it! People are funny, they look at material things as a measuring stick to success. So many customers gave me business as I strolled up in my Benz just because they thought I was successful. It was a gamble that paid huge dividends!
2) Never read much, but the CD's of Tony Robbins got me going. If you need motivation I wouldn't have anyone else but him to do it!
3) I never got any advice from anyone. People again are funny, when you are on top they only tell you what you want to hear not necessarily what you need to hear.
4) The biggest lesson that I learned was that you have "NO Friends" when you are making money. There are only people that want your money and call themselves your friend as long as you are giving them some form of your success or including them in some way or another. The people that are around you when you have nothing are the only people that should be in your circle when you hit the limelight.
5) If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. I have treated everybody that I have ever met as if I would want to be treated. I have made mistakes but those mistakes were life lessons and without them I wouldn't be who I am today!
7)My email lol
9) My email again
10) I was invited to Mosaichub from someone who reached out to me through linkedin. Its a funny question and it's one that I was just asking myself this am. I love helping people that are fighting the fight that I fought years ago. I truly believe in Karma and if I can help just one person a day (which is my goal here) then I believe it will only make me a better person. I really don't want anything, business is great but of coarse you could always have more, but I can't really say that that is what I am here for....
Great question Marzena!
The most critical aspect that brought me success was building sincere relationships where the prospect or client could honestly denote my sincerity to seek & search & enable suitable and appropriate solutions which were also in their best interests.
Building Strong everlasting relationships is the key to SUCCESS in business whether you are a start up or an established Corporation

That is a great question to ask those who are leaders in their community and their industry.
Going to speak for myself, I started my own business in 1995 for the simple reason; even at that time, I knew that the only way to be self-sufficient is to own your own business (be self-employed) and that has been my driving motto ever since.
I came to the realization that when companies where talking about downsizing the people that never got downsized was the owners and management. There might have been a few who did release their managers but for the most, those people and higher where safe from the ax.
Those who did the work, who put their hands on the plow where the ones release, fired and downsized. How can those who made you the money be the first to be fired? You would think that the businesses would suffer because the higher management does not know how to sweep floors and change garbage cans. But what they did was cut the wages of those that stayed and maintained a smaller staff to work harder and longer hours.
I knew that no owner of a business ever walked in one morning and said we all are fired!! That's it I do not want to be the boss any longer!
So since the owners never fire themselves then I need to own something. I was blessed to have my career come along at that time. No I do not do it full time because of the lack of those who will pay for my talents but I still have to plan my flag somewhere. I am proud to be in Public Relations and I love my career.
I came to Mosaichub to make new connections to broaden those who know about me.
I'm CEO to 29 years now I have accumulated more experience than someone who can not work for 10-20 years. Daily learning led men and women it takes a lot of composure and discipline.

3. Believe in dreams
4. e will always be betrayed by his own but we have to continue to trust others if we want to move forward.
5. I think I will not change because it is wonderful to start at the bottom to reach the top.
8. LinkedIn is the best site for me. http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=115075098&trk=nav_responsive_tab_profile
9. my email.
10. I need to help others to help me in return for sharing experiences and expertise.
Organizations need to know where they are going, why they are going there, and my role in helping us get there. Vision, Focus, Alignment and Execution.
I know that this is a simplistic response, but it is indeed the one thing that has has always influenced my realization of positive outcomes. I grew-up in family-owned commercial/industrial roofing company. My father would consistently tell me and others; "Always do the most and never do the least!". In those days it meant that I should carry the maximum amount possible up a ladder or across a roof, but the statement regularly echoes to me now when I am leading large and complex projects or servicing global clients. Whenever I have given my best and then some, I have realized positive, if not exceptional results. Thanks, Dad!
For real influenced that has brought you success the question perhaps is not what you have read to inspire yourself, but who do you meet with to drive your business forward. A board of other business owners who can share their real life experiences and keep you accountable to actually do what you are saying you want to do is one of the most valuable assets you can have as a CEO & founder.
According to this survey of CEO's and founders, 76% believe a peer board to be their most valuable source of business advice.
