Doing well for yourself and doing good for other people doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive

I had an AMAZING time presenting on the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage! I’m so grateful and honored to have been asked to speak!

It was a fantastic opportunity to share my thoughts with a new audience, there were so many great entertainers and of course the scenery was absolutely gorgeous.

I also came away with an important insight: Doing well for yourself and doing good for other people don’t need to be mutually exclusive.

Now, I’ve known this for a while; it’s how I’ve built my entire career.

But, this cruise is one of the best examples of this.

Tom joyner is a very successful media personality and has undoubtedly done very well for himself. Β There are some estimates that his net worth is around $30 million, and he probably could have created the cruise as a strictly for-profit venture.

Yet, he created the cruise as a fundraiser for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and has donated over $60 million to them over the 16 years that he’s been doing the cruise. Β That is absolutely astonishing.

There’s something major to learn here. Β If you want to help people, you don’t have to go start a “non profit organization” and start begging other people for money for your cause.

You can go out, be wildly successful and either donate your own funds or create a business that generates funds for your favorite cause.

Brilliant.

Jay Z said, “I can’t help the poor if I’m one of them. So I got rich and gave back, to me that’s the win-win.”

I agree wholeheartedly.
