I had a guy I respect above and beyond any level of respect you could offer a guy say to me "Without you I would not be successful". That is so wrong... this guy had work ethic, vision, goals and a business plan... all I did was validate it. He is in the process of setting up a business with 50 employees and offered me a piece of the business as a thank you... that was past generous and something that brought tears to my eyes... much too humbling. I declined. If I share with anyone as to business ventures/personal help/random other stuff here or other places it is to make the world a better place... not for personal gain. I have plenty of personal gain and don't need more... my family is set for a long, long time. I don't share for gain in my own life with the exception of knowing that what I am sharing is helping others so there is some personal satisfaction there for sure. The personal satisfaction and the feeling that I am helping others (those of you that are fortunate to have the same opportunity know this) is well past anything financial. If you are blessed by what I share I'm double blessed and please share what little you get from me with others so they will share a small part of what I have shared with you. Giving back does not always equate to giving to the one that gave and 90% of the time I bet the one that gave feels as I do there.
