Why do you do what you do?

Is it only for the money, the cash, the moolah?

Or is it something else?

Sure, money’s important.

But what drives you? What causes you to make the sacrifices you make?

Ever wonder what drives your colleagues?

The best advice my father gave me was this: “Do what you love doing, with people you really care about at a place you really care about.”

What about the money, I asked? It will come, he replied.

After years spent growing my firm for the wrong reasons and focusing more on money than passion, I’m happy to say that today I’m passionate about my work helping successful leaders become even more successful. Sure enough, my father was right.

So get your mojo working. The moolah will follow.
