I hired a real estate brokerage firm that did such a good job in selling my home (…in 7 days!), that I told them I would give them free tax work for the next 4 months if they would become a client.

They said to bill them, and that they wouldn’t pay, but would give the money to a charity they give a lot of money to already because they love what that charity does.

Have I lost money?  No.  I’ve probably increased the good will of my company so that my fees could go up in the future and that client still see value in what we do.  But that’s not the point…

Do business so well, and choose your clients so well that the work you do pays for the next homeless meal or bed someone may sleep in.

Thanks, Jason M. Blumer
