“Thou shalt not forget that money is only money and not character or fame.”
– Steven J. Lee
While there are no ten universal commandments when it comes to business (though surely some smart influencers or thought leaders have their own to contribute), a good one is to remember what money is and isn’t. Money won’t save you if you’re in a life-threatening situation; money won’t make you a better person, it will not change how people view you or how many people know you. It’s is not a key to success, it is a byproduct of success or it is poison in the well of otherwise decent character.
