It is not about the Money… really it should not be about the MONEY

We all heard it before – “it’s not for the money!!!” but we doubt the statement because for most people the main reason why they do business is because of the MONEY.

I think men who enter business or some ventures do so because of money and it is a big problem because what happens when money doesn’t come – most quit on the first sign of trouble or hardship.

Derek Sivers in his book Anything You Want, shares his journey into hitting it big, gaining fame and riches and eventually deciding to give most of it away. Here are some quotable quotes in his book:

“Business is not about money. It’s about making dreams come true for others and for yourself.”

“Making a company great is a great way to improve the world while improving yourself.”

“Don’t pursue business just for your own gain. Only answer the calls for help.”

“Success comes from persistently improving and inventing, not from persistently promoting what’s not working.”

“Starting with no money is an advantage. You don’t need money to start helping people.”

“Make yourself unnecessary to the running of your business.”
