#22 TIP #2 FROM FOUR GREAT LEADERS
"If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel worn paths of accepted success" (John D. Rockefeller). Success is achieved by those who choose to risk failure and even ridicule in order to create something completely new.

#24 TIP #4 FROM FOUR GREAT LEADERS
"Pursue excellence, not fame", (Jay Z). Many people do achieve quick success with a product or service, even as a startup, and that makes them feel special. They then ignore critical feedback from partners and clients. Once they stop learning it can spell the end of the business. Always remember, "Fame may be who you once were, Excellence is who you are".
#25 DOUBLE UP
Hand customers a SECOND business card to give to a friend. On the back of one card write the customer's name. Tell him/her if the person they hand that card to does business with you, you will give both of them 10% off their first/next order.
