Choose a good reputation over great riches

We start businesses and projects to satisfy needs in our communities, and in turn, earn a living and build a name for ourselves.

Sadly, some of us get so greedy and caught up with earning money faster through quick and shoddy schemes that we choose to compromise on the quality of our product or service. This compromise may seem minute in the eyes of the beholder at that time, however, it reaps damaging results down the road to the image of both the person and the community at large.  These seemingly small acts of one individual alone always reflect greatly on the perception of a community by a foreign party. And this is why we have one individual condemning another for being a seller of fake products, why we have one nation criticizing, undermining, and questioning another on their work ethics. Why? Just because they chose to compromise on their standards for quick gain.


Before we decide on an action that involves/affects others, we need to think about how we would like to be treated or served if we were in their position.



Be careful about what you buy out on the streets and on the roadside.


Provide a quality product/service. Your growth might take time, but you will build trust and a good name for yourself.
