While this may not have a direct impact on whether my business succeeds or not, I count myself extremely blessed to have made a business decision that has had a tremendous impact on the workers that work for me.
This year the Philippines have had a major typhoon. While these typhoons may not be as powerful as the hurricanes that we have in the states, they still cause a great deal of havoc. I had recently hired a new virtual assistant, but she has been unable to do any work for me at all because of the storm. However, I sent her $30 – which was the wage for the amount of days she had been working for me – and she sent me the below message on Skype:
Can you believe that? With that small amount of money you can make such a huge difference in the lives of your virtual assistants. Not only that, you have someone that is there to take your business to the next level.
I don’t know… I just think that it’s amazing what we are able to do today and how we can bless others through owning a business.
