Quote of the Day

Today I have 2 quotes for you that go hand in hand, the first is from the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean" and is :

"Take what you can, give nothing back!"

The second is from Steve Jobs:

"Why join the Navy if you can be a pirate"

Both these quotes pertain to the business world in the fact that you will always have competition willing to undercut your prices and outwork you to steal your clients. Remain vigilant and provide a quality service at a fair price to combat this and when necessary become the pirate.

Personally, I like the 6 rules Jack Welch Lives by:
The six rules are:

1. Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be.

2. Be candid with everyone.

3. Don't manage, lead.

4. Change before you have to.

5. If you don't have a competitive advantage, don't compete.

6. Control your own destiny, or someone else will.

Sandra, I'm glad you asked that :)
When you are Bill Gates and Apple is kicking your ass is one example of when it is necessary to become the pirate.If you don't understand the reference above please refer to "Pirates of Silicon Valley". Google it if you must.
