Surprising Oprah with One Part of the Investment She Made in the World
Oprah's Most Important Investments
Just imagine how Oprah must feel after investing in all those Morehouse men who come marching in during this video.
These men’s lives were changed by her and now everyone these men meet, date, marry, father, teach, support, employ, etc. will be part of the "ripple of rewards" from her "pebbles (and boulders) of investment."
This is what we mean by “investing in people because doing so pays everlasting dividends.”
Investing in People
We believe that everyone on this planet is worth investing in. These investments can be simple, daily, gifts of time and attention such as smiling at a waitress, giving directions to a stranger, listening to a friend’s problems, sharing a link to a favorite app or reading bedtime stories to a child. Or, these investments can involve more substantial time and/or financial commitments such as teaching someone to read, hiring a part-time worker at Freelancer.com, loaning money internationally using Kiva.org or investing in a startup idea on Indiegogo.com. No matter what form they take, these investments are worth making because investments in people pay everlasting dividends.
In our eyes, you’re already a world-changer because you’ve been investing in people your whole life through the social connections you’ve made.
In fact, your expertise as an investor in and influencer of family, friends and co-workers can be seen when you look at the number of people you connect with using your phone. This is true whether you access these folks by texting, calling or using social media apps like: Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, WeChat and/or Instagram.
