You can't give too much away...

Giving is like a boomerang.

A close friend of mine's father had a business he sold for over $10,000,000. I've always tried to learn as much from the man as I could. I'm always trying to get his stories out of him.

One night he relayed the following story.

"When my father ran the business he would say 'when business is down it's time to give some money away!'

He then went on to tell me that's exactly what they'd do. Whenever business was slow they'd go down to the church or some charity and just write a check. He said like clockwork business would soon pick up shortly afterwards. This was the same business that eventually sold for over $10,000,000

It's an amazing lesson. If any of you aren't on the board of a charity, I strongly suggest you run, don't walk. You'll feel ten feet taller, your community will benefit, and what comes around goes around.

 

All the best,

The more you give...the more you receive. And it doesn't just have to be giving away money. It can be giving your time, your help, etc...

I agree with this- I actually decided to pledge money for every closing to Habitat for Humanity for 2007.  I don't anticipate any business coming from that but I know I will be rewarded for it.

Yeah I have the Secret DVD. It's powerful stuff. It saddens me that many folks misinterpret the message.
