Thoughts for the day

Thoughts for the day

Be Better. Do Better.

Hello {First Name},

Thank you for joining us to share Ideas for Entrepreneurs and for supporting and promoting Enlightened Entrepreneurship.


I’ve often suggested that all my business advice can be summarized in just six words:


I would prefer, of course, that you bought my most recent books for entrepreneurs to get my full repertoire of words of wisdom from your Uncle Ralph with all the real-life stories that reinforce the lessons learned.

But here are a few extracts for you to consider as thoughts for the day:

  • Look before you leap.
  • A dream is not a plan.
  • Continuously rethink, review and revise your Business Plan.
  • Find the exit before it’s an emergency.
  • Give equal weight to Strategic Leadership and Effective Management.
  • Ensure short-term action and consequences are consistent with the long-term plan.
  • Good marketing is not enough.
  • Remember the 4 Ps: Patient, Persistent, Polite & Persuasive.
  • Balance the logical head with the intuitive heart.
  • Look after employees and customers first, but don’t neglect your own needs to stay strong and carry on.

Have a good day

Be better. Do better.

Del Chatterson, Your Uncle Ralph
