The more you give the more you grow: how you should run a business

In 2015, I reported on Dan Price, a Seattle businessman who reduced his salary from nearly a million dollars a year to $70,000, and raised the salaries of all his employees to the same amount. Since then, his business has been booming, and is a happy workplace.

Now, the owner of a small clothing business, Madeline Pendleton, has done the same. Not only does she draw the same salary as her employees, but she also distributes the profit equally.

This still leaves her materially comfortable, and also she is emotionally comfortable.

Both these wonderful people have discovered that the more you give, the more you grow, and no, I don’t mean the business growing, with is a nice additional side-effect, but the spirit growing.

They are carrying out the purpose of life.
