Latelly I have been thinking about the idea of share knowledge without expecting any financial reward. Like on the old days of school where your friends would ask you about a subject that they knew you know better than them, and you wouldn’t even think about money and would give them a private class.
So I realized that if you legitimatelly teach someone without excepting anything back, you have a good chance of get something back, and when you do that over and over again, with more and more people, the rewards will start coming on your way and will surprise you.
And when I started to think, I had this idea that may explain to you why. At least to me things became more clear now. People like to teach other people because it makes them to feel good about it. On the other hand, when someone teaches you something that is useful to you, you want to reward them.
Now comes the reward part of give, the reward can be anything, and will be in most cases as genuine as the given part. You will be referred to a job, to a new customer, to a new partner, etc. And these things can get really viral.
The more you give, the more you will get back. This works like a law of physics, when you give, you are throwing a ball of air that will gather more air and return to you.
