The reason I am building a nation, rather than a business, isn’t because businesses (or profits) are bad. Every organization must be able to support itself financially to be able to serve. It’s a dinstinction I’ve made (and many leaders make, whether they call it a “nation” or not) to remind myself that I don’t want this to be about my growth and my success.
The people must be at the center of any nation. It must exist to provide them with new opportunities, new insights, better ways of doing things, a better life…otherwise, why leave the place they came from? It’s simply not worth the energy or (in some cases), the risk.
