I’m still in planning stages of my business. It’s good to take a while in planning.
There’s a trend I’ve been following by Ritika Puri–with my own little twists.
I can’t say I know Puri’s mind, but she has a fresh take on things and she begun to stay away from toxic people and cultures.
This, I think, is good.
As business people, we have the ability to make the world the way it should be. We can create welcoming spaces and caring, empathetic cultures.
I have found when I’m not focused on the “bottom line,” I’m not only less stressed, I’m more productive and more creative.
There’s a terrible causticity in the air, if you breathe it. I have shut out most of the toxicity from my life and have found I am better able to accomplish things I want in life, including balance and happiness.
A business can be equitable and fair.
That may be a bold statement.
But it’s true. Business has a bad rap, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
One way I’m making my business equitable is by giving it a democratic structure. You can do this with a corporation, I’ve read, but most don’t. People tend to be power-hungry and controlling. They want to be the one in charge: The all-powerful CEO.
But you can organize your business so that employees and members have a say and a vote. Many big corporations call their employees “Team Members,” but don’t give them a say at board meetings.
I’m attempting to end the lip service.
When you shut out the negative voices and stop listening to caustic narratives, you can begin to create a more beautiful, just world.
