One thing that could be said for a lot of successful businessmen is that they do a lot to give back to the community. There are many different ways that people get involved in different acts of generosity. While some may say that this is done to look good, there are those that do it out of the kindness of their hearts. Whatever the reason, business owners do set a good example when they get involved in the lives of others with great generosity and a genuine heart. However, it is good to look at the reasons behind different acts of philanthropy.
With philanthropists like Keith Mann, there are a few character traits that one will notice. For one thing, he is compassionate. A lot of people who work hard to build their business tend to have compassion for others. Another thing that could bring out compassion is if they have started from the bottom and have worked their way up. They have compassion for the others that are where they once were because they know how it feels. At the same time, they want others to experience some of the same success that they themselves experienced. Keith Mann has these desires. This is one of the reasons that he has partnered with Uncommon Schools in order to put forth some scholarships for professional achievement.
Another thing that Keith notices is that the world is changing a lot faster than people could keep up with. This is one of the reasons that he wants people to take the time to learn about many different ways to earn income. If people are aware of these methods and even take the time to master these methods, then they will have a better time succeeding. For one thing, they will have back up plans for their success.
