Every successful business person has something in common, and if you are serious about being one, you should start learning from them. So where should we start? I would say, copy a trick or two from the books published by those outstanding businessmen with an MBA degree. Below are some of the answers they similarly shared and being elaborated in point to point view:
Goal: Having a clear picture of what you intended to achieve within a stated time range.
Ethic: The moral code which will operate and guide you and your employees through the way in the business.
