Business Quote of the Week – 3/17/08

“We don’t want to be rich, we just want to be richer that other people” – John Stuart Mill

Commentary: Small business owners tend to focus on money when we should be focussing on lifestyle. Acquiring more and more money is an endless game that never brings satisfaction. The best thing to strive for are the lifestyle of wealth: time-off, family time, not worrying about money, vacations, etc. When you focus on lifestyle, you’ll find that it takes much less money and requires you to focus on making your business run without you rather than requiring your constant attention in the pursuit of more money.
