Making money can be a motivator. However, question to ask is : why am I really doing this?
Success tied to that mission; the purpose for which you are engaging in the sum of all activities that lead to your creation of a product. That “why” matter much more than the “what.”
That “why” is not a luxury for the nouveau–riche, but available to everyone who wants to build an enterprise to serve humanity in whatever form.
That purpose is no assurance that you’ll make money, but that deep, emotional connection to your core that yearns to be unleashed.
