- Be Passionate
Love your work! You should enjoy what you do for a living.
Save for a rainy day rather than spend every centas it comes in.

Bad health stops you from working. Take time to exercise and maintain a nutritious diet.

- Satisfy Customers
Don't do average work-exceed their expectations and make them need you.
- Grow Your Network
Value family and friends' support, and meet new people all the time.

It's what is in the bank that counts, not what you are billing-understand the difference.

Your life should be more than work-maintain a good balance for health and success.
