Understand that you as the business owner are responsible for everything that happens in your business. You cannot delegate that responsibility. 2. The attitude of the business owner is reflected in the employees working in the business. If you don't like the attitude you see in your employees, look in the mirror. 3. Personal growth and business growth are not the same, but they are closely related. When you stop growing as a person you stop growing your business. 4. Know that you don't know everything. It is not possible. When you come to that realization, investing in trusted advisors makes so much sense. 5. Life is short. Enjoy what you do and others will see that and be attracted to you. If you don't like what you do, do something else. 6. Give others credit for their contribution to your success. 7.

You must understand how the business you are creating will help you create the life you want. There can be no misunderstanding. True success lies in creating a businessthat is consistent with and supports the life you want to create. 10. Develop a passion for your work and have fun!
