I hiked the Annapurna Trek in the Himalayas in Nepal a few weeks ago, and asked Lama, one of the Sherpas, about his perspective of money and what money means to him. He had the most interesting response: “money is a good servant but a bad teacher”.
The year was 2006. I was the Director of Human Resources for a low-income health care clinic in Northern California.
One of my first hires was an amazing young lady by the name of Araceli Collazo. Smart, hardworking, and heart-centered, Araceli proved to be an amazing addition to our patient support team at the center.
