Mr. OreckĀ  has given us a universal recipe for success: the ABC. A stands for your a**, on which you can always fall down. It basically means that you should not be afraid of failures and risk-taking. B stands for “boot straps, which you have to pull yourself off” every day despite anything. And lastly C stands for your customer, which is the key. The entrepreneurship should be customer-driven. Mr. Oreck has added that entrepreneur will be successful only, if he/she wants to improve the world and bring in something valuable for people. As a conclusion he said: “It is your life and your future, that is why you are the one deciding what to do with it”.

"Rember the ABC of the entrepreneurship!"
