A Wild and Crazy Idea
I recently started to focus on my jewelry business full time (enter shameless plug… http://www.etsy.com/shop/chrysalisjewelrytx ) and I have a found so much support and help from the on line communities of Etsy, Twitter and Facebook. It’s like this giant high five and hug all in one. I have told so many people how awesome it is to have so much support and encouragement.
Tonight as I was seeing who I owed on twitter (shameless plug two @melissacreamer ), I was thinking to myself how great and positive twitter is. However, it occurred to me, my experience is positive because I stay completely out of politics. I feel as a business owner, I need to stay clear of voicing my opinion. I do not want alienate possible customers.
Just for the record and full disclosure I would like to state that I am a conservative/libertarian that votes republican. Before you stop reading my blog (leaving my mother as my only fan) and calling me a bunch of names, please hear me out.
What would happen if we all encouraged each other? What would happen if we would see each other as fellow Americans…or heck...even humans? What would happen instead of instantly attacking and insulting, we listened to the other’s position? What would happen if we all understood a good compromise is where NO ONE is happy with the outcome, but it’s the best solution because it’s balanced? What would happen if we turn off all the talking heads on the 24 news cycle and talked to each other?
I don’t have a crystal ball, so I can not tell you what would happen. Wouldn’t it be fun to try?
Just a thought…they are after all RANDOM on this blog.
Until tomorrow - Melissa
