Why Does Your Business Exist?

Why does your business exist?  Is it to just make money?  Or is it more than that?  In Simon Sinek’s Start With Why he explores the idea of looking beyond what product your company is selling, and focus on why your company is selling it.  The absolute core purpose of your company, the reason it exists.
