It must start from having a good name. Learn to assist others and respect them. From your customers to your employees and the whole society. Let people trust you because of what you offer and your ability to be honest and faithful to them. Remember, a good name is better than a big name. Jack Ma says that what he gets is not wealth but trust from people. Establishing a mutual understanding with the society is one way of attaining your goal.
HAVE SUPERIOR EMPLOYEES
