***this will not be a “13 Minute Read”*** @DariaAgius #inmybriefs
I live by the “sea” Toronto’s @lakeontario, I stroll along, appropriately distanced, does that mask ever keep my face warm. I’m trying really hard to stay positive. My dad, my ma, my disable quadriplegic brother can see my smile, even from six metres away. But they know me. That “stress wrinkle between my eyes (the one my friends who of course, are NATURALLY smooth” can still see a smile (I won’t tell them that, it’s really a “beauty mark” born of years of stress and some situational depression) – and not just an I’m really scared – but I can fake this, there are those who are so damn positive, their smiles, reach their eyes, and see those too. They give me hope. That this is just my “smile wound”.
Now, it’s become my “fighting wound”.
I know, I know, am I getting annoying with my “pep-rally” approach to get my “Small Business Initiative” Across:
The bigger question lies with the bigger business, the giants that rule the world. They own the ships for which I and other VENDORS seal your cracks. But we all can’t do that if you won’t let us. Plural, not just one of us. Vendors!
IT IS YOU, BIG INSURANCE, MIGHTY LAW FIRM THAT CAN REALLY HELP WITH ALLEVIATING THE PAIN THAT COVID 19 HAS INFLICTED UPON OUR SOCIETY. ITS YOU!!!!
If ever there was a time to help beat COVID19, it starts with Science, finding vaccines, cures, establish SAFE environments for our elderly, applauding our nurses, our doctors, donating to the mental states of the world in general. It’s not just a health crisis, it’s a WE NEED THE RESOURCES. We need to buy local, we need to make money, share that money, see the results of that money. We need actionable effort!
I have business coming in, I’m an essential service, getting paid on time to provide the interpreters and translators to facilitate business around the globe, requires them to get paid. WE need to keep moving.
My point is, we all need to work together, competitors a like. You might not like to hear that. A company who puts all their eggs in one basket isn’t really helping the economy, it’s helping a single business to survive.
So, what if, instead on using ONE or even TWO small business vendors, you use three? That one vendor might not like to hear this, but do you really want to help through this crisis. Please consider this…
Fill in the gaps, use you’re “A” vendor as usual, surely there are needs for a “B” vendor to manage volume, but now is the time to bring in a “C” vendor to pick up the slack. To keep you moving more seamlessly.
Just a thought….
