If you receive a present that you don’t like in this dream, then you will be offered an opportunity for a business deal later on which you will probably not want to take advantage of if only because the terms are much more unfavorable than what is originally promised or expected.
If there was a condition attached to the offer (e.g. “if” they do such and such) then you should consider taking it even with the conditions attached.

If you receive money as a tip for good service
If you receive money as a tip for good service, then this outcome implies that people who work under you or alongside you are willing to do all the work while you are taking care of the boss.

If there was no figure representing the person in your dream who gave you money for a tip, then any assistance coming in will be either from another family member or relative who might have just started doing business and is still looking for clients.
So it must be treated as an investment opportunity rather than payment for services rendered because failure to adhere seriously to their demands, later on, could mean competition when establishing one’s own business. Especially if what worked for them would also work great with other people out there who are not yet aware of how to do it or what they can gain from doing it.
Another possibility is that you are being given a second chance by someone who wants to get back with you so take advantage of this and handle the situation with care as the person still has feelings for you which must be considered at all times in order not to lose them forever.
If there was another person besides yourself who also received money, then consider the two people as your competition. Especially if one of them has just started having his/her own business while you have been established already for a long time now so if ever any opportunity comes up, make sure to grab it first before someone else does or chances are that they might snatch away what could be yours once they see an opening.
