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,
