You Are a Business

“YOU ARE A BUSINESS; too many of us think we just start a business
or we are part of a business. NO—you ARE a business.
Everybody has a brand and whatever company you work for,
you have a unique ability to bring value and revenue in.”

A Unique Selling Proposition

Promoting You & Your Ideas

“When you read the phrase “selling your product or service,”
don’t just think in terms of the product or service your company sells,
but also your individual and intangible personal product or service: you.
And understand that you need to sell you and your ideas in order to
advance your career, gain more respect, and increase your success, influence, and income.”

Business Mirrors These Goals

“We all like to be unique, we like to be valued, we like to be complimented,
and we like to achieve things, for ourselves, our family, our communities, and our society.
We still must find a way to achieve our goals and desires, to leap as high as we can.
Business, as an expression of human aspiration and achievement, mirrors these same goals.
It is about being great, about achieving something, and sometimes even about changing the world.”

Voluntary Exchange vs. Forced Distribution

“Socialism states that you owe me something simply because I exist.
Capitalism, by contrast, results in a sort of reality-forced altruism:
I may not want to help you, I may dislike you,
but if I don’t give you a product or service you want, I will starve.
Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution.”
~ Ben Shapiro,
Political Commentator, Columnist, Author, Radio Talk Show Host & Lawyer
