I remember the first time I started doing the healthy accountant podcast.
I didn’t know I had to act my way there, but I was doing it anyway. I wasn’t doing it for money.
Now don’t get me wrong, money is good. Money is a scorecard, it keeps a score of how many people you’ve helped.
Think of Netflix, Netflix took movies to millions of people. They took all of Hollywood’s movies. created a library and steamed them to millions of homes. They became a multi-billion company.
I remember when Netflix first came out, we had just gotten married, my wife loved movies and had this Netflix account. She would order movies, watch them for a few days, a week, or a month, and send them back and order more movies.
Netflix didn’t own any movies. They took Hollywood’s products created a distribution service and boom! they had their own product.
They didn’t try to beat Hollywood, they didn’t start by getting into creating movies, Hollywood was doing that. They focused on growing, getting bigger.
Today Netflix is a global entertainment company with its products. Its founders Reed Hastings, and Marc Randolph must have visualized what the company would become, a global entertainment company. Today any person on the globe can watch movies on Netflix
