How to Start & Grow Your Own Business – 10 Steps

In the last three months I read a lot of books and articles about how to start and grow a successful small business.

This idea also suggests that discriminated persons have to stop accepting it and demanding to be well treated. The main reasons for discrimination are the human deteriorating process, the individualistic behavior, the exaggerated social comparison and disloyal competition all encouraged by our society.
