Whether you’re an entrepreneur running a startup or running a department in a large company, more money must become your mantra. Money is one of those taboo topics in society that we don’t like to talk about. We’ll admire athletes and celebrities and envy them for the money they have, yet we get uncomfortable when the “m” word is brought up when it comes to us.
I work with people who are interested in being successful in their businesses and lives. When working with groups, it’s not long before I hear someone say, “money isn’t everything,” or “money won’t make you happy.” My answer is always the same, “I agree with you, more money isn’t everything, and while it doesn’t guarantee happiness, it won’t make me unhappy either. I am still interested in getting more.”
