We didn’t initially know what these amazing structures were. It was many years later that we discovered they were temples and mausoleums with hidden rooms. We discovered that they were oriented in patterns with sun and stars for many years.
We don’t yet know the exact reason they were built, whether they are the pyramids in Egypt or Mexico. History and mysticism have made it difficult to determine their true purpose and why they were built. We can only guess. Architecturally, however, there is one truth to all of them: the deeper the base, the more stable they will be and the better able to withstand the changes in our world.
This is also true for our businesses. If we have a large stable base, we are able to survive. I mean that we have a variety of products and services we can use to build our business’s base in multiple markets. Although they may not yield millions of dollars in revenue, they provide steady income that allows us to fund smaller, faster, higher return projects.
Hierarchies of business employees are similar to pyramids. However, our products and services should also form one, from the lowest yield (but more stable at the bottom), to the highest yield (but more risky at top).
