    most businesses fail not because of doin something wrong but primarily because of not doin anything at all, just sinking your head down when market is down, not learning from mistakes and not adapting to the changes happening in the market, refusing to change the way you work, refusing to move your BUTT.

    Its the top management that is responsible for most of the failures…..dont forget that although business survives only when it makes profit……the pourpose of doin business is not profit…its the business itself….if u dont feel for it u wont work hard with heart, mind, body, soul all into it….success is achieved thru BLOOD SWEAT TOILS & TEARS. If dont like, feel for your business your efforts will always fall short makin it a half baked cake……….hence a failure within short time.
