That’s right, don’t pay them. Don’t file for bankruptcy and for goodness sake don’t sign up with a consumer credit counseling company.

These three fundamental concepts are the keys needed to open the doors to true business. The concept of purpose focuses on the “why” of the entrepreneur. The second concept of service will help the entrepreneur understand that service will take the organization to world-class statues.
