Helping Others & Self-Employment

Helping others is cool 😎 there’s no doubt about it – it’s basically the coolest thing you can do. Well, I think so anyway.

In the past few months, I’ve come across a bunch of businesses and business people who are going out of their way to ensure they are helping others. One business owner even told me that the only reason he is in business is to help people – he doesn’t see the point otherwise. How cool is that!?

I need to do more..

I’ve aligned myself with socially-minded, impact-driven people and businesses. My goal and guiding principle is that if I can do a good job of supporting these people and organisations, they can then multiply the impact they create – it’s basically a synthetic option on impact-driven actions… And that’s all well and good! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I just know I can definitely do more.

So that’s what I’m doing. I’ve partnered with some amazing people on projects that are aiming to deliver impact by helping others (more to come on this soon!) I’m also aiming to deliver some of Seedling’s services for free to businesses that could use my help. If you think you (or someone you know) might fit in that box, get in contact.

I’ve also restarted my old habit of putting money aside to donate to good causes. This is a good and easy thing to do. For me, it’s $10 a week. For you, it could be a bigger number or a smaller one – it really doesn’t matter as, over the long-term, I guarantee it’s a big number.

So, why not start today?

Yep – this is your challenge. Please, please, please – if you ever take up a challenge from this blog, make it this one.

Have a think about the ways that you can help others. Don’t do it because there’s something in it for you – just do it because it’s the right thing to do.

Here’s something you can do right now. Head on over to The Good Registry and either find a charity you’d like to donate to or buy a gift card for someone you know. Bonus points if you set-up a registry for your next birthday, anniversary or [other milestone].

Here’s another idea – can you bake positive impact into your business model? Build an impact model so that every time something in your business moves you forward, you can bring others forward with you.


To anyone who read last week’s post, this will be old news… BUT Billie got her final round of vaccines last week. We’re going walking and I can’t wait 🙌

Check out the photo below – they grow up so fast (7.5 weeks vs. 14 weeks).
