For a businessman time is of the essence. the fact of the matter is when you have an expendable amount of money two types of investments can be made the secure ones and the risky ones. in either case you would hate to loose money. A very handsome amount of money has to be put in to start a business and you hate if it all goes down the drain. With that being said I would disagree with the fact the businesses should do anything to make a profit. My following reasons will put the veil off from it.
The first and foremost reason is work ethic. Honesty is the best policy or solidarity is virtue are some of the sayings one should keep in mind before thinking of making a profit. If its meant to be yours no power on earth can stop it from becoming yours. Earning profit by cheating, deceiving or hurting someone will only burden your conscientious. For example if you are running a restaurant and serving leftover food, just to be cost effective, well this is bad for the reputation and dangerous for the customer as well. so one should be honest and dedicated to his work and be happy with the outcome no matter how small or big it is.
The second reason is be competitive and by that I mean healthy competition. one should be creative in a sense that he should find ways to attract customers. Build a great P.R for his business ,review his product or material before selling , come up with deals or coupons to help his business grow. In that way not only will he be able to gain profit but he will be satisfied with himself as well.
so in a nutshell if u want to run a business make sure you do it with honesty and without corruption. your customers should be happy with your product or material and be willing to recommend it to others. in short on should earn his profit in a legitimate manner.
