The Manifesto of Think Do Business [video]

The Manifesto of Think Do Business [video]

We relate to people and businesses better when they stand for something we identify with. According to Simon Sinek, the author of the book “Start with Why”, people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. A good way to express your beliefs is a manifesto. I was inspired by the manifestos of Holstee, Expert Enough, and a number of other manifestos. So I developed a manifesto for ThinkDoBusiness to share some of my thoughts and beliefs relating to business and life. So here it is: Business can be good… and it can be fun. ThinkDoBusiness is here to help people new to management and non-business entrepreneur do business better. We will be sharing articles, videos, tips, interviews, and many more to stimulate your mind and help you do business better. We would love to have you a regular reader.
