“You can’t light another’s path without casting light on your own.” – John Maxwell

When I was younger I thought helping people only benefited the people that were being helped, but as I got older I realized that helping others is equally beneficial to the person doing the helping. There is a joy that comes from helping people whether it’s big or small. The realization that you are helping effect positive change in someone’s life is a feeling like nothing else in this world. I have learned over the years that the best way to really learn something and learn it well is by teaching it to someone else. It gives you a different perspective that you may not have had otherwise. The fact is that you can change the world even if it’s just the world of one person – you’re making a difference. I started the Other 40 because I love business and I also love helping people with their businesses. Knowing that the work that we do here is helping others is a joy like no other. We are grateful for every visitor on the site and for the social media friends that we have, because helping you is helping us. If we can help just one person, then it’s all worth it!
