I am not a brand. Not a profession. Not my trade. Not my craft. Not my business. My business is not me. Big questions searching for clarity. I am my own marketing department, my own delivery system, my own support staff … and I take out the trash. I am not my own support system – you are. By ‘you’, I mean my readers, friends, family, neighbours and clients.
This is beautiful writing, Mark. It's poetry! , PW, Calgary, AB … P.S. regarding your Toastmasters contest speech: I created a Lily pad alert to connect with someone new on my list of acquaintances every morning. It's been so delightful to send someone a ray of sunshine and receive a beam in return. I shared the Lily pad riddle with a group of teenagers I teach at church. One of them said, " I will never forget the difference between what I intend to do and what I actually do."
I like it - always been my motto that someday, somehow, life will right itself, SC, Chestermere, AB
