It’s easy to keep 100% of everything to yourself. Never share the upside. Keep people down.
That’s a winning strategy in a world where you never have a setback or need anyone else.
It’s not a winning strategy in the real world.
Life is long. There will be a day you need help. Even if you never need help, there will be a day when your ambitions outstrip your chequebook.
That’s the day you’ll be glad you made other people rich.
Partners, staff, shareholders, suppliers. True entrepreneurs ungrudgingly make them all rich.
The trick is to create a structure whereby if other people get rich, so do you. That way you can focus on making other people rich.
You can focus on being unselfish, whilst being sure you’re taking care of yourself at the same time.
Make other people rich.
