Customers Are Always blog has a great post Enthusiasm, Spirituality, and Karma in Business. I particularly like this quote:
Yes, I truly believe that there is such a thing as karma in business. What you give comes back to you tenfold.
I couldn’t agree more. A number of years ago I did a blog design for a friend, free of charge. Another acquaintance noticed me for that design and recently I have started doing some web design and blog designs for them. Without doing that first site I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been recognised by my new client.
I never did the original blog design expecting anything but sometimes what goes around comes around.
