You have uncovered your “why,” and it propels every facet of your endeavors. In the parlance of Simon Sinek, the luminary scribe behind “Start With Why” and the prodigiously acclaimed TED Talk, “How Great Leaders Inspire Action,” “People do not purchase your actions; they invest in your motives.”
Hence, this is your juncture to disseminate your “why” to a markedly broader audience—a potential influx of customers, associates, suppliers, investors, and beyond.
