The world learns through experience, but living in an image-conscious world may prevent one from learning through his experiences. This is apparently a dilemma considering the fact that one lives in an age of post modernism; a stage during which signs mask reality, and one is often deceived through image-promoting strategies. This is true to say because of the fact that signs, logos and big names are now common, and people are often lured into believing the authenticity of different products because of the promotions they have. Behind all these, there are hidden realities that would surprise one. Even services such as corporate hospitality come under this understanding because of the fact it masks the relationship of companies and their clients. Though it boosts productivity and promotes better relationships it is nevertheless a means of covering up failures and misunderstandings and promotes closeness between companies and clients. In discussing corporate hospitality, one can assert that its importance is immense because of the fact that it ameliorates relationships at the business level and does its part in invigorating economics.

This is coupled by the individual experiences of other entrepreneurs too whose consultancy is a must. Novices must gather as much information as possible from the experienced individuals s/he comes into contact with. This mitigates the chances of a business failing to a great extent and serves as the greatest precautions for a new business.
