    How young of an age do you think a child would be able to read and understand the book your recommend?

    Glenn, good article! I’ve come to realize the jealousy comes from people who believe that “money doesn’t move.” Short sighted people think Steve is taking that money and hiding it under his mattress (think King Midas). Instead that $175K is going back out into the community as Steve shares and spends his earnings. I’ve grown frustrated with elected officials who think the word “profit” is bad and no company should be permitted to have a profit. They don’t understand a profitable company cascades the money down in new hires, bonuses, raises etc and that money in turn goes back out into the community to purchase things and keep our small businesses thriving. As always, thanks for the insight and sharing with us! Victoria Northrup, President of the Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce.

    Glenn, I am an accountant and honestly the first thought I had when I read that Steve was making $175 for ten speeches was that’s $17,500 for each speech – sounds about right. Although that may seem like a lot of money for two weeks work, in reality it may be six months before he speaks again. When you look at it that way, it’s not so much. People will see what they want to see. It doesn’t matter if it is money or success or anything else – if someone else has it and you don’t then your first instinct is to judge and be bitter. The fact remains that you have to work for what you want and need – don’t begrudge people who are doing just that.

    Sadly there is one political party that feeds off playing on people’s lesser qualities of greed and envy and even more sadly, it seems to work. Those who fall for this have no idea how much better off they would be if they could see and admire the effort put it by those who are successful. And strive to do the same.
