No one becomes successful without a set of rules to live by

Henry Tippie was no different. Many years ago his sage business advice was codified into a list by his son, Henry B. Tippie II, and became known as Tippie's Laws.

    Tippie’s Laws

    1. Assume nothing.
    2. Say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
    3. When in doubt, ask.
    4. Everybody sells by their attitude.
    5. Do it 100 percent accurate and 100 percent complete.
    6. Work smart.
    7. Every day is a fresh start.
    8. Time is money—don’t waste it.
    9. Do today’s business today.
    10. A premier product demands a premier price.
    11. A sale is never complete until the money is in the bank.
    12. Unnecessary expense saved is the easiest profit made.
    13. Operate with a sense of urgency.
    14. Think profit.
