Hi this is Diane Kennedy. Today is Day 27 of the 30-day Countdown to the release of my new book, The Maui Millionaires™ that I co-wrote the book with David Finkel. The book is now shipping from Amazon, and is scheduled to be released in bookstores on November 3, 2006. I’ll be checking in every day with a Wealth Tip excerpt from the book, written either by myself or by my co-author, David Finkel.
Wealth Tip 27: Build Maui Giving into Your Business and Investing from the Very Start
When you add in the component of giving, suddenly doors open that normally wouldn’t be open. Remember when we talked about the synergy of dreams that occurs when you combine your dreams with someone else’s? The same thing happens when you combine giving in with your business plans.
The way you get your dreams, or your deal, is that you are now helping someone else get their dreams. It’s a way to overcome barriers. The differences in status simply go away.
Now suddenly, whether homeless or a king, a person who makes wise business decisions or poor life choices, all will benefit when a business combines the efficiencies of a successful business with heart.
Maui Giving might just be the critical edge that can take your business to the next level. Take the example of Maui Millionaire™ Morgan Smith, founder of Morgan Financial, Inc., a nationwide mortgage brokerage company. When Morgan first came as a star to Maui he had a successful business originating over $500 million of loans each year. But Maui inspired him to make giving a big part of his company, and he involved his staff into it. It’s become a powerful differentiator that ties employees to be committed to his company. The results? They raised tens of thousands of dollars for worthy causes, involved his team in meaningful ways and his company’s net worth has tripled in the last three years. This year his company is on track to originate approximately $2 billion in loans!
