In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Eric Siu breaks down why long-term value always trumps get-rich-quick projects.

The benefit of creating value, in Siu's words, is extending beyond making money just for yourself. It can be tempting to launch profitable (but ultimately short-lived) products that generate a lot of profit. Eventually, making products just to make return can lead to a warped sense of value and money. 

In Siu's younger years, he even saw himself becoming obsessed with generating six-figure returns. Eventually, he learned that putting in the time and effort to build a stable business can do the most good overall. When you build something with lasting impact, you will not only bring in more consistent money but also make it clearer where your hard work is going.
