The can be a dark and contentious place. Illness, famine, poverty, hostility, and desperation are all around us. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The world can be a better place. We can make a choice — a choice to be a voice of change, a change that can transform the world we live in. Entrepreneurs are well-positioned to help make that change.

Years ago, I implemented a phrase into the fabric of the core values of my company. That simple, two-word phrase — Givers Gain® — was a game-changer in giving people a different framework relating to the way they network with others.
