Thomas Edison once said, “I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others… I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent it.” I love his philosophy – his thoughtfulness – his generosity – his ability to look at the bigger picture.
As an entrepreneur, you have a huge ability to make a difference in the world – to use your influence and your company to combat poverty, injustice, abuse, illiteracy, and any number of other societal problems. Don’t forget that as you create your business plans for 2010.
