Investing in Others

July 6, 2010

For quite some time now – years, really – I’ve invested my time and emotions and love into the success of others. That’s my passion, after all, doing everything I can to inspire others to do a little bit better, every day. However, as a business-person, no matter how large or how small your business might be, when is it the right time to also consider investing monetarily in others? You know, your MOOLA!

I was approached the other day for the very first time by an entrepreneur pitching his business in an attempt to attract investors. First, it was flattering. I mean, me? Like, really? ARE YOU SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GETTING INTO. Then later, it was fascinating. How interesting to learn such specific, inside details about someone’s business; to hear their personal goals and struggles and dreams, and experience a snippet of what their business looks like on a day-to-day basis.

I have no idea if we’ll invest or not – many discussions will be had on the subject – but I just thought this was interesting and wanted to share it with you.

What does Zig Ziglar say? You will get all that you want in life if you help enough other people get what THEY want? Sounds about right.

Throw out your thoughts on this. Do you invest your time in others? Your money? Do you believe what Ziggy says?
