It’s Not the Money, Honey: The Real Purpose of Business

Business Point [tweetmeme] I don’t care what the Donald says. The point of business is not to make money. The purpose of business is to expand who you are through what you do. And use profit to achieve a more noble end (and yes, self-development is a noble end).

Borrowing Money

AccessMe [tweetmeme] I'm in debt. And I have been for most of my adult life.

I see debt as means to an end.

There was a brief point in my life when I managed to pay off my first round of debt - this one due to attending university and post-graduate school. But my next round of debt started soon after, when I decided to leave my job and travel for half a year with my now-husband-then-boyfriend. And, subsequently, start a business with the money.
