What do values have to do with your business? Isn’t business just about making money? Danny Iny, CEO and founder of Mirasee and author of Teach and Grow Rich: Share Your Knowledge to Create Global Impact, Freedom and Wealth, shares his reflections on how values can enrich an entrepreneur’s life as well as become a core competitive advantage.

  • How technology has made it virtually impossible to conduct business without ethics and transparency
  • A simple barometer to determine, at any given time, whether you’re conducting business with integrity
  • Why online course creators have the exciting opportunity to empower people, not as a cause that’s tacked onto their business, but as its core effect
