The right way to think about money
The Artist Farm has a great post on how to think about money. You can (and should) read it here. Bottom line: if you want more money, figure out how to create more value. Focusing on 'getting more money' never works (unless you're in the weapon assisted unauthorized money transfer business). It's a great way to talk to clients, suppliers and staff: "Not happy with your rates or compensation? Lets talk about how you can create more value".
The knowledge based business corollary to this is "Lets talk about how you provide your value to many more customers" - figuring out how to leverage a company's knowledge by embedding it in staff, training, software or product is a key to making a knowledge business much more valuable.
Implementing a leverage strategy for your knowledge business - something else to think about while fishing for customers in the Openwater.
