+ Apple – $5.99 B quarterly income….that’s impressive. The reason: new products/services. See the 04.30.2011 post – Great Ideals.
+ Another unique company making models – http://www.islandenterprises.net/default.aspx
+ Undercover Boss: University of California, Riverside – Chancellor. Instead of the folks coming to his office….he went to their work place…very nice.
+ Appearances are important. Years ago a used car dealer planted grass and flowers around his lot….as well as keeping the lot and cars spotless. He was very successful….and not a large lot.
+ Trends – Great businesses are able to see trends and react.
+ Websites: In todays world….they need to be well done….current….easy to navigate….and a superb contact page. It’s all about first impression.
