Description

You want to be more profitable. While profit is what fuels a business and customers is the energy that runs every corner of the company, growth is what makes it all worth pursuing.

In this workshop, we teach you not to overcomplicate things. Most of the time, the simplest ideas are what makes you more profitable. So, if you have been wondering what is still out there that can help you grow your business bigger, take a look at what other successful business owners can share about how they rallied their business from startup to progressive enterprise.

WeTeachMe has gathered together five of the most successful entrepreneurs amongst many, with a vast knowledge of simplified goal structure for growth.

Mediation and happiness - it was very interesting to hear from different point of views about meditation. What really got me is that we should not just aim for happiness but wholeness instead because human has to go through different stage of emotion and happiness is just one of them.
