And by «why» I don’t mean «to profit». This is the result. It is always the result. By «why» I have in mind several questions: What is your goal? What’s your reason? What do you believe? Why does your organization exist? Why do you get out of bed in the morning? And why should anyone care?
People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. And if you’re talking about what you believe, you will attract those who believe in the same thing.
