To make profits, businesses take raw inputs (materials, information, products, knowledge, time) and add value by converting into things that customers are prepared to pay money for. The value added is directly proportional to profits and revenuei.e.
The more value you create, the more customers will be be prepared to pay and the more they will buy!
