“You can’t help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself.” – H. Norman Schwarzkopf

A famous quote about the power of the “win win situation” and about service. In a win-win situation, everyone benefits. It’s often thought that in order to get ahead in the world, you have to compete against others, and in order for one person to win, another would have to lose. However that is not the case. Aligning yourself with serving the needs of others puts you in a position to grow as a person, to learn and develop new skills and to generate income. So we find that the best businesses are those whose primary focus is helping others. The money they earn is then in one sense a “by product” of that focus. The greater the problems you solve, the more money you make.
