A Bag of Ice is a Bar of Gold: Assessing True Value in an Online Business

Written by David Moore


I was privileged to assist in relief efforts duringrepparttar hurricane season in Florida last summer. There was no pecking order for those who stood in line for hours at our distribution site. They came from every economic strata, and they stood in line and waited patiently. The reactions, however, were similar, when they were finally handed a bag of ice and a case of bottled water. One relief worker stated it aptly. “You give someone a bag of ice and from their reaction you’d think you had given them a bar of gold.”

Why do I tell this story? Because it illustratesrepparttar 138797 point that perspective is everything. This is so even in designing and implementing an online business. If you give someone something they highly value at a particular moment of need it is as if you are handing them a bar of gold.

Those who are most successful in this business are those who genuinely care about others. They don’t offer people a product or service forrepparttar 138798 sole purpose of earning income. They see income asrepparttar 138799 residual, but they see helping other people solve their own financial problems asrepparttar 138800 outcome through which they deriverepparttar 138801 most satisfaction and good feeling.

Don’t misunderstand. I’m not suggesting that everyone who makes a lot of money is driven by generosity and contributing to helping meetrepparttar 138802 needs of others. What I am suggesting to you is that those withrepparttar 138803 greatest long-term income generating success, whether it be an online business or not, think a lot about how their own success is helping other people, and because of this they spend more money investing in people than they do investing in technology.

William Pollard, chairman and CEO of ServiceMaster, said it this way. “They work at making themselves available. They are givers rather than takers. They know that their results will be measured beyond their workplace, and thatrepparttar 138804 real story (to their success) will be told inrepparttar 138805 changed lives of others.”
