People First, Good For Business

-“In business, sir, one has no friends, only correspondents. ” – Alexandre Dumas

People are the single most important factory in whether your business thrives or fails. If you are running your business all by yourself then the state of it is all down to you.

Understand that these people, whether they are customers or employees, are not your friends. Take it a step further. If you are the only employee you cannot afford to be friends with you during business hours. Be harder on yourself than you ever would on someone who you are writing a check to each week. People are your problem and the solution to that problem. Understanding people and the rolls that they are to play in your business is part one of building a great business.

Becoming a people person is good for business. Understanding the part that people play in your business is great for business.
