Business tips from Peter
You need to invest money in order to make money. This was shown initially to me by my parents in their business, and then the more I have dealt with other businesses, the most successful ones invest in both their business and themselves. The investment can be in up to date plant and equipment, good team members and their training and development, and especially your own development and getting and listening to good advice.
Building your wealth will take time, and running a good business and generating profits is the first step. And don’t forget, real wealth is discretionary time.
