What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever been given?
Best piece of advice - ''Always put a current in the other mans bun'' - If you need something from someone - you need to think about what’s in it for them. Same advice applies across retail - If you think from your customers perspective as much as possible (rather than your own) - you will be much more successful in business.
