Mine is
It's not about ideas
It's about making ideas happen.
The customer is NOT always right. Some people are dishonest, are constant complainers, or don't pay attention to product descriptions or terms under which items are being sold. It's important to be diplomatic, but that doesn't mean you let customers run over you.

One of my pillars of business that I stand by and highly recommend especially to newbies is to “Leed with Revenue”. I thing I got it from Gary Keller’s book The Millionaire Real Estate Agent. To me it means that I cannot spend money until I make money. First work hard to generate a couple of sales then put money “into your business” for growth. Obviously there are startup fees associated with every business. This applies to marketing and advertising and increasing pieces of equipment.. etc. It’s easy for me to cave into the idea “If I just had ... I would generate enough sales to make it worthwhile.” I believe this is a worldly mindset and we need to get back to the basics of raw hard work which trumps any slump you may be in.
