What Are The Advantages Of Listening To Others ?

                  Words by Mr Kevin Mayer, Entrepreneur: www.kmayer.co Today, I felt like writing. I wanted to share my thoughts on how important it is to listen. Normally, I listen much more than I talk. This is something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember.   A couple of years ago, I realized the advantage of listening to someone, like your business partners, clients, future clients, and even your life partner.

The French Canadian watch company you need to know

In this exhausting era of Hyper-Globalised everything and especially within the world of style, its unusual to find a business that you might describe as having “local character”.

Fail to Succeed

Yes you read correctly. You need to lose in order to learn how to win. Now hold on, I'm not saying to go out and lose or fail on purpose. Some of the biggest lessons you will learn in life come from a big loss or big failure. What's most rewarding to the soul is how well we rise after the fail. No one can ever take that feeling away from you. Nobody! Sports for instance. I love tennis which is a Gentleman's sport. Tennis is an individual sport. You're on your own and you have no one else to blame but yourself. I started playing tennis when I practically started walking. Throughout my youth I constantly played a lot...
