Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Being Helpful is the New Black

« Small Business Owners, Meet Steve Gaines, Passionate Marketer | Main | #twittertales - Your Connection Story for an eBook »


This is a great post. It is perfect, simple advice that can translate to any industry.

people always want what other people have to be happy...but what they don't know is that, if they took a good look at what they actually do have and used it in the right way....(being helpful)it's for free and makes you happy!

This manner of thinking is such the antithesis of the "me-first" thinking that has in so many ways been so destructive. Personally, I think the "give first" - "serve others" way of thinking is the key to a happier, more productive life, country, community, family, business - you name it. As many have suggested, I too hope this becomes "fashionable" and more people embrace it.
