And Failure.

Why do some businesses succeed and some fail under exactly the same circumstances and in exactly the same business?

10 Rules for Building a Successful Business

Find the Balance

Balance is a key element of a happy life and sustainable business.

Yin (passive, receptive) and Yang (active, creative) are both opposing forces and complementary pairs. Problems arise not when the two forces are battling, but when there is an imbalance between them in the environment. Conflicts, business problems, health disorders, divorce, and other problems – all can be attributed to disharmony in the forces of Yin and Yang.

10 Rules for Building a Successful Business

By: Sam Walton, Founder of Wal-Mart

  1. Celebrate your success. Find some humor in your failures. Don't take yourself so seriously. Loosen up, and everybody around you will loosen up. Have fun. Show enthusiasm always. When all else fails, put on a costume and sing a silly song. Then make everybody else sing with you. Don't do a hula on Wall Street. It's been done. Think up your own stunt. All of this is more important, and more fun, than you think, and it really fools competition. "Why should we take those cornballs at Wal-Mart seriously?"... More

Building and Transforming Corporate Culture

In six words, corporate culture is "How we do things around here."

Corporate culture is the collective behavior of people using common corporate vision, goals, shared values, beliefs, habits, working language, systems, and symbols. It is interwoven with processes, technologies, learning and significant events.

Innovation is not divisible – ‘good in parts’ is no good at all. Innovation systems are only as strong as their weakest links... More
