Are you Paying it Forward in Service?

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.- Muhammad Ali

Paying it forward is a business practice that has become as important as paying your bills.

Customers learn a lot about the integrity of a business by observing the integrity of its leaders.

Over 14 years ago I decided to become a Rotarian. The Rotary motto is “Service above Self". Those three words have shaped the way I live, run my business, and interact with my community.

Joining a service organization like Rotary or Kiwanis is one of the best ways to foster a mutually beneficial relationship between your business and your community. It enables you to align yourself with other like-minded leaders who value service as an important component of business and life.

As you build your network, demonstrate the type of leader you are by leading in a service organization. We all want to do business with people we like, trust and respect.

If you are not a member of a service organization, maybe it’s time to sit in on a service organization meeting. It’s a great way to expand your network…and have a great meal.

Check out: Rotary, Lion's Club, Kiwanis or another organization that speaks to you.

Are you spending your time with like-minded leaders in the kind of service that means something to you?
