Do The Work
Is it true that where there is passion there is success? NO! You can’t just show up with passion, hope, and a great heart and expect the dollars to be passed out on your first-class flight to your beach vacation. Not every day will be awesome, and not every month will be profitable. However, when every vector is pointed in the same direction, you and your team will feel more fulfilled and energized to push through, doing the hard work to create the products and services that make meaningful change the world.
Profit is necessary for the success of every organization. For some businesses, it’s necessary to invest so much upfront time and money that years may pass before profit is a possibility. For others, profit is much less difficult. It’s incredibly important, however, to find other hurdles to celebrate. Client success, product development, a failure that resulted in a learning opportunity – celebrate as a team and celebrate often.
"Profit is not the purpose of a business, rather the test of its validity. – Peter Drucker"
