YOU have three bottom lines, helping yourself, helping others and helping the environment. Helping yourself must come first, for without that, you can’t help others. It’s like the oxygen mask announcement on a plane. ‘Please secure your own mask before assisting others.’
Of course, if you don’t survive, those around you may have no chance at all. The same goes for money. If you don’t have it, how can you assist others?
