Amish business lessons

Wow, I just watched a video on CNN talking about the 95%+ business success rate (over the first 5 years) for Amish entrepreneurs.  Remember Amish dress and live their lives differently from Americans.  
How did they do it?  Some of the things where within most people's capability. For example?
-  Start your day early.  Those interviewed started their day at 4:30AM.
-  Love what you do.
-  All the family works the business in some way.
-  Maintain high quality control.
-  Take a chance to start a business.
-  Emphasize humility.
-  Provide a quality product at a reasonable price.
-  Create an experience for the customer.
I must say the video I watched was very inspirational.  Nothing new revealed but tried and true techniques that have worked for many, many years.
I am a CPA in San Antonio and serve individuals and small businesses in San Antonio and surrounding areas.
