BUSINESS

BUSINESS
Business. An organization or economic system where goods and services are exchanged for one another or for money. Every business requires some form of investment and enough customers to whom its output can be sold on a consistent basis in order to make a profit. We succeed in enterprises which demand the positive qualities we possess, but we excel in those which can also make use of our defects. - Alexis de Tocqueville The meek shall inherit the Earth, but not its mineral rights. J. Paul Getty Source: Business Dictionary.
"Allocentrism is the practice of trying to see things from others' points of view. This is very useful in business just as it is in life. There are many possible uses: negotiation, persuasion, teamwork, sales, marketing, and just about every other aspect of business." - Tom Murcko
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency. - Arnold H. Glasow
