I just finished a book by Felix Dennis. I don’t agree with him on several things, but one thing he said really strikes a chord with me:
The world is full of money. Some of it has your name on it. All you have to do is collect it.
I believe this is the biggest difference between successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs.
If you’re creative enough, you can find a way to make money out of something that you’re passionate about. You don’t need to dream about doing something meaningful and profitable with your life – you just need to do it.
I’ve been spending this weekend thinking about possible business models that would achieve two things:
- Help humans in that are truly in need (homeless, hungry, alone)
- Make a decent profit
I know there’s a way to do this, I just need to find it (by the way, if you have any ideas, feel free to comment below :D). I don’t think humanitarian efforts and good profit are mutually exclusive.
Go get it
Next time you come across an business idea that you really get excited about, it probably means there’s a big pile of cash with your name on it – you just need to get our there and claim it.
