Giving and Receiving- The Karma of Good Business

My name is Danny Welsh and I'm an entrepreneur, marketing consultant and real estate investor that believes in doing for others is not only nice, but also fun, and can be a profitable habit. I call this the Karma of good business.

I like to give my time and money to charitable efforts, big things like helping build a school and church in the Sudan, and smaller things like volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, breast cancer initiatives, training programs for kids like teaching financial management, mentoring and spending time with foster kids, etc. I give to a couple churches and believe in the power of the tithe (i.e. sowing seeds).

I love sending thank you notes that are handwritten when someone has been kind to me, and am astounded that people enjoy that little gift so much! I also send Christmas cards to more people every year, currently over 350.

And I don’t expect anything directly in return from any of these things.

But you know what? This tendency to give to others has had an amazing effect on my business career.

In fact, it’s arguable that my best business actions (and eventually, though not initially) most profitable, sprung from a desire to give for free to others. Again the Karma of good business, in helping others I have been helped.

I gave away my time for years, working for free for a number of different successful entrepreneurs in business, seminars, marketing and real estate. I helped these real estate investors, marketers and seminar leaders with marketing, copy writing, writing, research, party and event planning and promotion, information product sales, and on and on.

The result is that today I am a successful entrepreneur with growing businesses in each of these areas.

I gave away hundreds of thousands of real estate video trainings and eBooks in 2008 in "The Greatest Real Estate Giveaway" (hope you like the name!)-- and ended up selling some products and services to people afterwards who were grateful for the gift up front.

I started giving away free memberships in a social network for real estate investors years ago and that has snowballed into one of the most trafficked real estate websites in the world-- and now my partners and I can recruit new potential investors for our own real estate projects from among the members, who recognize our role as leaders for having founded the network.

I began an apprenticeship program for a couple dozen aspiring entrepreneurs, internet marketers, and real estate investors annually in 2010, and I do it for free, for a full 6 months, teaching them as much as I can about business, real estate and internet marketing-- and a number of them have gone on to partner with me in business in 2011, thus expanding my ability to make more money.

I'm not sure where the impetus came from for giving.

I just have always enjoyed the smiles and appreciation and respect from others.

Making money is a great bonus, but I’ve never made it my chief aim frankly.

There's an awful lot of "I" in every sentence in what I've written, but the great part about giving I've found that is if you make it about "THEM" the "I" will always receive.

Fact is, I love to give.

A few times I've found it difficult. And a few people simply cannot receive, so why try? Others do not deserve gifts from anyone and when you learn that you stop trying to give.

Every gift to me is more good karma.

I do not expect always to receive from those to whom I give.

I just seem to receive from somewhere, more and more the more I give, and that is enough for me.

But giving in my business dealings with others, as I've shared, has always had a positive return affect from somewhere.

It’s the “sowing seeds” principle.

And it works, in life and in business.

I plan to give as much as I can to as many as I can for as long as I can.

Hope you too get a smile from some of my gifts.
