So you’ve created a booklet and it’s doing well. That’s great! What’s next? Create more booklets and other products.
So, you’ve created more booklets and other products, and you’re making more money and things are going great. You’ve built the business of your dreams. Good for you! What’s next?
Once you’ve got your business going the way you want it and things are running smoothly, and you’re making good money, it’s time to think about giving something back – not to your customers because you should be doing that anyway in the form of great information – but to your family, your community, and the world.
As a business owner who is making more than the average Joe you have the most wonderful opportunity to change lives and make a difference. No, you probably won’t be able to make a huge impact on a global scale, but you can make a difference to someone.
Maybe you’ll help your grand daughter with college expenses, or you might give to a charity that has touched your heart. Maybe you’ll help the homeless, or pregnant teens, or children who are in foster care, or the elderly.
And if you’re not there yet – with a booming business and making more money than Joe Average – you can still make a difference. Just start right where you are. Maybe you can’t donate a lot of money, but you can donate a little. That little bit when added to everyone else’s little bit will still add up to a lot! And if you absolutely can’t give money you can always offer a little time. Whatever you can do – do that!
Why give? Because it not only helps someone else, it makes you feel good! In fact, it’s addictive once you get started. Try it and see!
I have a special account at my bank that I deposit money into several times a month for the sole purpose of giving. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to give to my family, my friends and my community when a need arises, as well as having money to donate for things such as charities and natural disasters.
You might want to open a special account at your bank for such a purpose. You can put into it whatever you can afford, and if you add to it regularly you’ll find that the amount grows and you’ll always have money to give when you want to or when a need arises.
I don’t know if one person can change the entire world, but I do know that each of us has the power to make a difference in at least a small but significant way. And if enough of us are doing our part then together we can make the world a better place for all of us!
The only reason to own any business, booklets included, is to make yourself rich. But the real payoff is being able to afford to give. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to help someone who couldn’t have done “it” with out you!
To your riches!
