Connie's motivational quote for today is by – Nicole Snow, “A small business is an amazing way to serve and leave an impact on the world you live in.” When I started my career 40 years ago, I had no network. I didn’t even know why I needed to build a network of people who I could get to know and ultimately be able to help them.  Wow, what an incredible journey of learning why people matter so much in business and why showing up in a caring and loving way matters!


My guest and I will explore this topic of understanding why paying forward generates new business opportunities and provide an introduction from Presidents and Owners of Companies like Magic.  You have the power to create this type of dynamic relationship by giving first?  Yup, that’s it, just giving first! 


The Organization that we talked about today is Camp Kids are Kids Chicago.(Link: Every year our camp gives kids who are undergoing cancer treatment a chance to experience camp in an Urban environment. This year two major hotels, The Palmer House and The Drake will give up rooms to support campers, siblings and the Doctors, Nurses, Counselors and Staff who will stay with our kids and give of their services for free. Hotel furniture will be removed, bunk beds installed and campers and their support team will have an opportunity to experience Camp. 




About Morris J. Elstien:  Most of his business career has been in Chicago. After attending Indiana University, his three first positions were with Owens Illinois, Kraft Foods, and Maremont Corporation. He became a consultant in the Direct Mail Industry and eventually became President for 13 years. He took a leap of faith and took on a position with no pay but 33 and a 3rd percent ownership. He bought out his partners after a year and a half, grew the Company to 87 employees, and sold it 16 years ago. 

Morris recently started MorrieConnect, teaching Presidents/Owners and C-Suites his methodology of paying it forward.
