Transparency, part three of the three pillars of a great business.


“People with vision master the ability to see through to the heart of issues and investments. They value transparency.” – Robert Kiyosaki.

Transparency here is synonymous with honesty. Honesty foremost with the self and then honesty with others. By honesty and transparency, I mean to say, know what you’re good at and what you can improve upon, and also be honest about the value that you can bring to something or someone else. Not only be honest but also be accountable. Don’t be afraid to say you can’t do something. “Pass the buck”, as we used to say as a barista at Starbucks. Then learn how it’s done right. And only then, do it.

At Gargari Design, I foremost value my clients, and what their needs are. To me, primarily being able to resolve my client’s problem is my first priority. Making money comes later. Not to say that I will work for free, but to emphasize the importance of solving problems first, creating positive relationships, and making a positive impact in society.

I haven’t been the perfect person growing up, I don’t think any of us have. I also can’t change the past, but I can impact the future. What I can do is be my best self now and continuously aim to be a better person, a better brand, and a better business.
