business vs. service company

Many of us use our business to make a difference. It can be hard work, with stressful deadlines and long hours. But we do it because it’s fulfilling and rewarding, not just for our sake, but also for those around us. Our business enables the community in ways that are sometimes hard to comprehend. To paraphrase the words of Albert Schweitzer, “I am sure that there are people who can live without helping others. I merely wonder how they get along in life.” We may sometimes have the urge to sell out, to turn our backs on the mission and focus solely on the bottom line. But it’s not just our business that fuels us; it’s also our bottom line. We can serve others and still be a success. It’s really not that difficult.
