Never Confuse Karma and Credit

Many people believe that doing good deeds has rewards both during life and afterwards as well.  This belief is common across many religions and goes by different names. 

Some folks talk about “Karma”, here is an explanation; Karma is a law in Hinduism which maintains that every act done, no matter how insignificant, will eventually return to the doer with equal impact. Good will be returned with good; evil with evil. Since Hindus believe in reincarnation, karma knows no simple birth/death boundaries. If good or evil befall you, it is because of something you did in this or a previous lifetime.

Karma is sometimes referred to as a "moral law of cause and effect." Karma is both an encouragement to do good and to avoid evil, as well as an explanation for whatever good or evil befalls a person.

In Christianity we have the Golden Rule; The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code, or morality that essentially states;

One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.

This concept can be explained from the perspective of psychology, philosophy, sociology, religion, etc.: Psychologically it involves a person empathizing with others. Philosophically it involves a person perceiving their neighbor as also "an I" or "self." Sociologically, this principle is applicable between individuals, between groups, and between individuals and groups. (For example, a person living by this rule treats all people with consideration, not just members of his or her in-group.) Religion is an integral part of the history of this concept.

In business this concept is a simple carry-over,  treat every customer just like you want to be treated.  Make every customer a happy customer.  Run you small business by that simple principle and you will have a successful and satisfying business.
