Many people are in business for so many reasons and it is these reasons that guide their business model and the results they command.

In simple explanation:

Your System, your Style and Structure are very crucial to your Business performance in the marketplace. Offline or Online.

Step 1: Be Clear About The Ethical Values That Will Build Your Brand, Influence Your Performance And Business Income.

Ethics are a system of principles that governs the conduct of an individual or business. What are moral fibers of your performance, productivity and profit.

Many years ago, when I first got married, we had a troublesome generator but unknowing we got it a more dangerous mechanic.

Someone introduced us to this young man and each time the guy checks the generator, he will say, sir the governor is bad, I kept wondering if there any part of the generator called governor. Google was not that a trend like how and so our ignorance was a viable space.

One day, I told my wife, this governor that is always bad, maybe it is the mechanic that is bad. We opted for another engineer and he never mentioned governor. So, I knew, he was trading with a deceitful language.

Recently, I saw him, after many years over a decade, he is not different rather he looked worse. As soon as I saw him, I said the governor is bad. He smiled but that meant a lot.

In Business, if you want lifetime customers, engaged the Skill of Sincerity. It’s intangible but has tangible rewards. It’s a monetary virtue.

Now, it makes more sense why when God altered their language, their enterprise expired. The Bible is so rich in enriching our lives.

Moral of my experience:

Language is a very powerful tool in business but sincerity must be part of your skill.

There are skills that give viability to skill. One of them is SINCERITY.

Many businesses have died and will die for lack of it.

You Know what i found? DECEIT or DECEPTION in Business  IS A LOSS CHANNEL.

Truth is no matter how long deception may live, truth will find her out and then the deceivers’ sorrows would be multiplied.

Deceit creates only One-Time buyers instead of All-Time buyers.

If you use charm to get a guy, the troubles of the renewal process and the fear in which you constantly live are good enough to make your life miserable.

And when you are eventually caught, sorrow and loss of years becomes your pain.
