The art of building fair exchange: a lesson for life and business
Published November 8, 2016 by IHB
Getting OR Giving? In business as in life, the most solid relationships are built on a mutual exchange that has to be fair, as Impact Hub Belgrade Co-Founder Gaia Montelatici explains.
The conversations with some of our members in the past few weeks reiterated the very mission of Impact Hub Belgrade. In a situation where more traditional business demonstrate their flaws and unsustainable “extracting” models and economies are stagnant, we want to change relations and ways of doing business. The aim is to encourage more people to tap into their passion and find meaning in their lives through entrepreneurship.
The whole idea has been to do this with members at Impact Hub Belgrade that we admire and getting to know our members hubbers makes me develop an even bigger appreciation for them and their work! Yes, I admire them and this makes me feel very lucky because it means that I am actually doing what I have been intending to do.
This brings me back to reflect on a simple but crucial idea: the trust we build is what makes us grow personally and professionally.
