For a long time now, I have been a bit unsettled about business in this cray era of the internet and the “global” economy. As a dreamer, I have looked at videos, listened to gurus, and joined the social network. The more I did (and learned) the more unsettled I became. The reason for my unsettled condition was that through all of what I was seeing, hearing, and experiencing there was a tremendous loss of the human element.
For me business is about looking people in the eye and knowing that they trust what I say and I trust them in the same way.
- It’s about being confident that the people you work with really care about you and you really care about them.
- It’s about relationships that will give the other their last dollar to bail them out of a jam.
- It’s about building a business that counts for you, for your customers/clients, and for your community.
Over the next few weeks, I am going to introduce some thoughts about building such a business. My hope in all of this is that some very talented entrepreneurs who are looking for more than just fame and fortune will take these simple thoughts and bring about a revolution of caring in this country and around the world.
So, buckle up and hang on for the ride. Please comment and add to the conversation. This discussion could very well change the course of your world. Most of all I want it to help you find purpose and passion!
