Check out Seth Godin’s post, “Getting ahead vs. doing good” on his blog. It makes us wonder whether business gurus like Seth know that there is a parable about this very concept.

For those of you following the blog, we mentioned Seth Godin as one of the “people who inspire us” a couple weeks ago. Now you see why. Also, check out that company in Seattle he mentions, whose young (Christian) CEO made the call on salaries here.
