Legendary investor Warren Buffett, the founder and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, shared his best business advice with a group of small business owners. Speaking at the 20th Graduation of Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses at LaGuardia Community College, Buffett told the graduates: “Tomorrow morning when you look in the mirror after you’ve gotten up, just write — or just put it in lipstick or whatever you want — ‘delight my customer’ not ‘satisfy my customer.’ ‘Delight my customer.’”
It’s a simple three-word mission.

Do you ever wake up in the morning and feel like life is treating you unfairly? Or maybe God isn’t coming through for you as quickly as you’ve projected and thereby seeming too slow for your liking? Is your patience running out of steam? Then, you need to read this post written by Fola and pressed from openpleasures.com
One thing I have learned over time as a Christian is never to look back and regret where I am now based on where I’m coming from. This feeling of regret often set in when we believe we should have achieved more than we have already accomplished.
Sometimes, we fall prey of pursuing things that occupy the very bottom-list of priority. And as a result, neglecting the things that really matter. This post by Fola pressed from openpleasures.com captures the whole essence of pursuing the things that are really of essence. Hope you’ll find it very helpful.
Very lately, I have been so busy with juggling my job with maternal and wifely duties topped with building a business that I believe that my relationship with God has not been at a place where I would want it to be. Prayer time has become rushed, taking the time to study God’s Word has become a rarity and please don’t even mention a nice quiet time with my loving Father. Our everyday lives are so boxed with too many things on our ‘to-do’ list, many errands to run, many meetings to attend, many goals to accomplish, kids to take care of, business that requires your attention to grow, career that needs you to fly, family that needs you to be an active and not a passive part of their lives and the list is inevitably endless. Now, most of these things are not in themselves bad or sinful, in fact, most if not all of the things we do or pursue to achieve are all good things.

The binding of two hearts
The coming together of two bodies
The union of two minds
The synergy of two destinies
The working together of two opinions
