network is your net worth.
Be friendly but have few friends. Really, all you need is to have alliances (social leverage) and an inner circle (loyal people). Don't mix family and friends with business.
In business, treat friends like strangers (professional) and strangers like friends (customer service). Practice empathy, see through the eyes of the market, see what you do (product) from the view of others. Be customer, market and people oriented for they are your greatest assets and hold your biggest opportunities.
Law of Knowledge
If you knew better, you'd do better. To do more, learn more.
Law of Vision
Think BIG, Start Small. Start with what you have and better tools would be found on the way.
Law of Value & Result

| The six most important words: I admit I made a mistake.
| The five most important words: You did a good job.
| The four most important words: What is YOUR opinion?
| The three most important words: If you please.
| The two most important words: Thank You.
| The one most important word: We.
| The least important word: i!..
The secret to wealth is to solve problems. Put people's needs before your want. Imagine if you knew Blue Ocean Strategy, the art of winning without competition.
Imagine if you stop trying not to be better than the next person, but to be the best of you. For in that lies in the difference, your Unique Selling Point (USP), the success!
