					?For most people, money makes the world go round and business bears that money.
Businessmen will perhaps do anything just to achieve the ultimate goal of having a
business, and that is to earn income. Net profit or income financially means a surplus
of sales or revenues after deducting costs and expenses. Whether you are engage in
profession, occupation, work or trade, you are in business and you speak income.
When you earn an income you suffer taxes, the worst nightmare for every income
earners. Income tax is your punishment of doing well in business. This sounds
ridiculous but this is the reality, you pay when you earn. Because tax is legislative,
noncompliance to this would results to crimes. This thing called income tax had
already made billions of liars around the world. Some governments imposed taxes
which are already too much to burden the flow of business. Others make tax laws that
are already beyond the ability of taxpayers. However these facts must not result in the
existence of enormous number of dishonest people in the world.

Ethics in business rarely exists nowadays. Perhaps it is because for most people, profit
will come without the need of business ethics. This, I don't agree. The word ethics is
derived from the Greek word ethos, which means "character," and from the Latin
word mores, which means "customs." According to the encyclopedia ethics is the
branch of philosophy that defines what is good for the individual and for society and
establishes the nature of obligations, or duties, that people owe themselves and one
another. Maybe ethics is not needed to earn profit if you define profit or income as
money. But deeply speaking, business is not just for money. Yes it is definitely for
profit, but profit is not just financial profit. We need profit that will not just sustain
our pocket or our stomach. Significantly, we also need profits that will feed our hearts
and soul. Considering that we are great businessmen, we should extend our minds to
this principle. We need business ethics to earn these high valued profits. We must be
concerned to the virtue of our character and to the common good.

Your business is not just for the survival of your life on Earth but it can also be your
road to the survival of your soul. If you're in business and had a company, you can
help your employees by providing them enough salaries and other benefits that will
make their lives better. You can be honest and pay your exact tax for the government
who will eventually use it for your country's development. (Assuming your
government is straight and not corrupt) But don't mind them, be honest even others
are not. We are talking here your soul survival and not theirs. You can also serve your
customers by providing them their needs and giving them convenience. Customer care
is so important for your customers as also important for your business to earn public
trust and loyalty. If you build infrastructures for your company you contribute to the
development of your place in terms of buildings and infrastructures. When you got
ethics in business you practice fair business competition. Fair business competition is
a challenge for every business to improve the qualities of their products and services,
and the end benefits are to the consumers.

Doing business with clean conscience is doing business with good night sleeps. It is
also doing business with gladness of your heart and soul. Gratitude will come to you
and you will become a stress free businessman if you do business with ethics. These
and other spiritual profits will straightly come to you and the good thing on this is you
are not taxed on this kind of profits. As an extraordinary businessman, you do not
only set your long-term goals for 10 years or for a life time. You must also consider
eternity and set goals to achieve profits that will benefit your soul. You need profits
that last forever, profits that will give us everlasting life and happiness, and profits
that will earn us the key to heaven. These profits will benefits us in the short run,
midterm run, long run and eternal run, as God is great from the beginning and unto
the never-ending.

Do business and believe in God. Building our business in God's place is like building
it in rocks which are in great foundations. Let us be kind and grateful to our
employees as they are our best assets. Let's give them bread and they will give us a
ham sandwich. Let us have huge care to our customers as they are our best revenue
generators. Let's give them good price, high quality products and best services and
they will give us their respect and loyalty. Let us be fair to our competitors as they are
our great motivators. Let us give them fair game and they will give us the true
meaning of winning. Let us be thankful to our Father Almighty God as He is our
greatest business partner. Let's serve Him and He will give us joy and peace of mind.
