    Do what you love

    In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.
    Warren Buffett

    Audits - be able to evidence a company is meeting your expectations

    There’s a reason that God gave us two ears, two eyes, and one mouth. It’s so you can listen and watch twice as much as you talk. Best of all, listening costs nothing.

    There are plenty of attributes that separate the great leader from the good manager. Both may put their work before their family and friends, survive on little sleep, endure a lifetime of red-eye flights. Look more closely and you will find that the great leader possesses an unusual, and essential, characteristic – he will think and operate like an owner, or a person who owns a substantial stake in the business, even if, in a financial or legal sense, he is neither.
    Sir Alex Ferguson
