Why Donating a Percentage of Your Proceeds to Charity Can Double Your Income
Created By: Sally Shields
My vision is to inspire more harmony among 20 million mothers and daughters-in-law around the world by teaching all brides to learn the art of makin friends with their husband’s mother, so I wrote a book about it, called, The Daughter-in-Law Rules!
Right away I knew that my book was supposed to help others. When I wrote it, I knew I wanted it to get out there in a BIG way, and, a big fan of Deepak Chopra’s The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success, I am always very aware of the law of giving and receiving. I felt this would be the best way to get my book out on a larger scale, and to help others in the process.
The DIL Rules raises money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation® whose mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.
As a musician, I have never really noticed the effects of the downturn in the economy - we are used to living hand to mouth! LOL! But seriously, giving back has actually led to quantum leap in my success, because when you partner with a charitable cause, you now have an entire database and media presence behind you. It is like aligning yourself with the waves of the ocean, rather than
just being a small trickling of water that comes out of your bathroom faucet.
The best way for businesses to balance this strategy, in my opinion, is to position yourself between a fortune 500 company and a non-profit organization. For example, one of my media sponsors is 1-800-flowers.com. Together with them, we are currently working on a HUGE national contest that will raise money for the NBCF®. It's a very exciting opportunity and one that I feel will help to manifest my vision of creating more peace and harmony at home. Creating increased feelings of warmth among in-laws helps foster familial ties, which leads to pride and loyalty. The benefits of a caring family go beyond tangible outcomes and serve to strengthen our communities, provide for needs, and increase our sense of well-being.
Many people ask, “How can you make money when you're giving so much away? But, believe it or not, the more you give away, the more money that is attracted to you, because the universe gets the message that you have abundance and just helps create more of it! This is truly "the Secret" in action.
Being a small person, who has impacted the lives of those who are less
fortunate than myself, there is absolutely nothing more rewarding.
Final words of wisdom...
I wrote this book based on the 7th spiritual law of success, which is the
quickest way to get what you want, is to help others get what they want. What I
mean by this is, be an openhearted, giving, loving sensitive person, and the
world will reflect that back to you. That is how I strive to live my life and
run my business and it has proved to be a very successful model!

Interview with Author
5. What is your perfect day as an author?
It would start with a walk along the beach. A pirate ship whips around the edge of the cove, cannons blazing. I see a small rowboat, hard at it for shore. The boat is hit, but miraculously, a fiesty girl and a rattled old sea-hand escape out just in the knick of time. They make it to land, and I run to help them up. Cannon fire drives us from the beach. The old sea-hand is hit. He grabs my arm. "Get 'er to...
