Step on the back of others and never give a sucker an even break... if they were brighter, they'd be like you. Take all offers of help, but never give any... it will cost you. Try to skew the game so that the unempowered and disadvantaged stay that way. Bribes are OK because they pave the way to what you want. Pay all your future employees as little as possible so that you can make as much as possible. Cheat on your taxes. Screw your small suppliers who have no way to collect from you. Don't give to charity, keep it for yourself. Drag as many suckers into whatever game you have going and keep their money... it can't be your fault... if they were as bright as you they wouldn't be suckered. Always be looking for the 'deal'... and don't worry about the character of your associates. Howzat?


Thank you Master! Now I know what I've been doing wrong my whole life! You've basically condensed all taht tere is to know about business into one short paragraph. Absolutely brilliant!

Not business... getting rich quick. I run my own business. I believe in life/work balance, fairness to employees, and that having fun will bring the financial rewards.

To become truly wealthy requires as much luck as hard work.

SE, thanks for the long, carefully-considered replies, I've been reading them over and over, and am checking into Kerley, a new one to me.
