Maybe this should not be titled “Why we do it”, but really, what gives us the power to do it. In entrepreneurial life, we have roller coaster of emotions. I can build the system a customer needs which has me riding high and within minutes, start the work at the bottom of the next project.

One of the Entrepreneur on Fire podcasts had the interviewee talk about his priority is on giving first and success is secondary to him. Due to that attitude, he felt success came from his wanting to give to something greater than himself.
