Here is a quick thought about the importance of making money in your business.
This quote is from one of my favorite authors, Brian Tracy (author of too many books to list individually):
"The whole aim of starting a business is to develop a consistent, predictable source of cash flow in excess of cost and expenses and then to hold on to the money."
When he says "hold on to the money" he is referring to the importance of retaining a meaningful portion of your profitability and cash flow in the business and not letting it "leak out". Retaining money for reinvestment, growth, "dry powder", and other business sustaining activities.
In your personal life, "holding on to the money" is a little different subject.
In my view of the world, you want to grow your personal net worth to a sizeable number and always have plenty of cash on hand.
But as you grow your personal net worth, you will find that generously giving some of your money away is fulfilling and rewarding.
A good topic to think about from time to time.
