Agreed. But please don't say publicly "we should make as much money as
possible with free software", which is the mean to attain the goal, but rather
state clearly the goal: "develop more free software".

If you make the first statement in front of a journalist, he will quickly
twist it into saying that you want to have a Ferrari and the way of living of
the rich and famous, which is not your goal.
