People Over Profits

Doing Good Is Good Business

TL;DR: Whether you are the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or the sole founder of an early-stage startup, putting people over profits will be absolutely crucial for long-term success.

We did.

The moment we gave them our credit card information or checking account number, we also gave them permission to continue acting this way. We are the ones who reinforced this negative behavior.

We appeal to people building the companies of tomorrow.

We go straight to the source and speak directly to the entrepreneurs who are solving problems by creating companies. These individuals (and many others) know that profit is an inevitable part of creating and sustaining a company.

Profits should come after people, both inside (employees) and outside (customers and users) of the company.

If you truly focus on the people you serve and create effective solutions for problems they have, profit will surely come.

Otherwise, what’s the point?
