Starting a business comes with its complications but learning from others' experience can make starting a business more fruitful. Here's what I found which I'd like to share with you.

its all about hard work, without it, i don't think you would run be able to run the race, let alone reaching the finish line.

Absolutely! But hard work comes in many forms. I love networking and had been talking to this guy for many months. Then one day, he mentioned he was looking for a venue to host a charity ball, as luck would have it, I had also recently met and got to know the director of a Football (soccer) club who has a stunning venue.

I introduced the 2 and the charity event has been booked. The venue director said to me, "oh, it seems like this referral just fell on your lap". Little did the director know I spent months networking which is a lot of hard work and only when he felt comfortable did he mention about the charity event.

What did I get out of it... nothing but pleasure! Will they remember me? Yes, for life! I'm very credible in their eyes ;) But it's all hard work!

Shameer Shah: I like your expression: "it takes two to tango." I say that it is a two-way street with a voluntarily exchange of values between two parties.

Exactly, benefit and value goes a long way when appreciated by both involved. I agree :)

I nodded when I read the following statement: "Customers are not always right" I am an experienced purchaser, so I am allowed to say it! ;)

Hey thanks. We all help customers as much as we can, and even when they are wrong. The key is to listen, understand and be open to conversation. As they say it takes two to tango. There's no right or wrong as a view point.
