Hello, Calvin here again.
Ask yourself: what is the essence I want my work to be.  Is it simply a vehicle to make the most money possible?

Or is it a means to provide the best product solutions at the best possible price to clients I have come to know through repeated sales due to the excellent service I personally give them. I like them and they like me because I go out of my way to help them.

Would you rather have your home decorated by someone who saw it as an easy way to earn a buck, or by someone who loved the creativity of colour, texture and comfort?

Obviously the latter. And would you rather be trained to learn new computer programmes online on your own or personally on a one-to-one basis by an expert who can help immediately when you have questions?

Once again…the latter.

No matter how important or significant your work may be to yourself or others it is important to check your motivations and intentions from time to time. 

Should you become successful it is so easy to let your guard down and let client service slip.

What started out as a business to serve the community could turn out to be average as your staff lose interest and your vision to serve become blurry with time.

Therefore it becomes vital that we take time out to reflect on our motives and intentions as often as possible. 

Usually every quarter when we do our business review to see if we have lived up to our client promises.

We as entrepreneurs must put feedback mechanisms in place to ensure we get honest feedback from our clients about our service. 

Evaluation forms can sometimes be unreliable and impersonal.

Simply ask you clients directly how they have experienced your product/service and ask them if they would give you a referral.

If they are reluctant to give referrals then that is a sure sign that you need to evaluate yourself.  You might have let the little things slip. 

It is my personal belief that most companies fail not because there is anything wrong with their product but because the owner, management or staff have slipped up and lost customer focus.
They have forgotten to take time out and evaluate their motives for being in business in the first place.

Belief in the quality of your products and love for the clients you serve, should constantly be the energy and driving force for showing up at work every day.

An Internship programme is important for every student at CalvinAcademy to enable them to apply practically what they have learned in class. 

They get exposure to real clients and real projects which helps them get accustomed to the working environment before they apply for a job.

I put a lot of emphasis on internships as it is the the best method for students to evaluate their digital graphic design skills and knowledge.
