Are generous people more successful? Cultural idioms like it’s a “dog-eat-dog-world” and “nice guys finish last” may have you thinking that while generosity is the “right” way to be, it doesn’t always pay-off in the end. And that somehow the “ends justifying the means” is the way to get to the top of the success scale.
Well, we have a contrary belief to the worldview of generosity and, as it turns out, there are studies that reveal that generosity does, in fact, lead to success!
Be sure to tune-in to this week’s short episode of The Money Guy Show to find out just how successful some generous people are and how they get there while others do not.
