The moment your credibility died:
“While she was CEO, Carly helped steer HP back on track by focusing the employees on the values to make great strategic decisions.”
Well, I suppose it wouldn’t be a good opinion without some disagreement!
I wish there were some reasons provided for your feedback! HP performed well in the years following her being CEO.
Of course, I wasn’t there to see it myself.
Before her she left there were articles written on how she was a bad CEO. When HP did well after her departure, there were articles written about how she was actually a good CEO and all the seeds she planted came to fruition.
How about doing things that make people happy.
The moment your credibility lived:
When I saw you as one of the blogs of the minute on WordPress. 😉
I’m starting my own t-shirt design business and I think my philosophy is “helping people to stand out fashionably.”
Wow, thanks for this great post. I’m at the start of thinking about how do I start up my company. This was very helpful.
Because of this blog post, I started thinking about what my philosophy is and I came up with something: to enlighten, educate, help and empower.
“helping people to stand out fashionably.”
Ummm…. that seems to be more of a mission statement than a philosophy. I think a philosophy is more akin to what the personality of your company will be.

Cool post.., dude
All the “philosophies” of business are in people’s heads. When money-making is involved, the philosophy suffers. There’s no point trying to make simple capitalism seem sublime, unless you want to sound like one of the frauds who bullsh*ts with words and claws at the bonuses.
Cool blog dude – I agree with what you are saying – you seem passionate about business. I think that the philosophies steer the course of the business and make it great, rather than mission statements which might never be achieved
