As part of being an entrepreneur, giving back has become a strong desire to me. I also see this desire in a member of my mastermind group.
My daughters wanted to take emergency medical training. I put on hold many of my entrepreneurial project to take it with them. Also, my family has been heavily involved in local volunteer ambulance for years. In June, I became an EMT, while my oldest gained her certification in August. It was probably the best project I have been on for my entrepreneurial venture this year.
Would it be enough to be successful but not giving back? When I look at the volunteer ranks of the ambulance, fire departments, charity staffs, church boards, etc….., it seems success and independence is not enough. Giving back to communities and organizations when so many blessings have been afforded to the entrepreneur seem to be a great desire for many.
