A satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all.
I've helped some of my classmates on how to strategize to get to the next level of their businesses.

If our nation goes over a financial Niagara, we won't have much strength and, eventually, we won't have peace. We are currently borrowing the entire defense budget from foreign investors. Within a few years, we will be spending more on interest payments than on national security. That is not, as our military friends say, a 'robust strategy.'
