In the age of globalization and multinational corporations, we sometimes forget about good ol’ fashioned, local, homegrown businesses. While it’s often easier (and cheaper) to purchase items and services online, if we forget about local businesses and entrepreneurs, we miss vital opportunities to help our communities thrive.
I am a firm believer in supporting local business and serve as an enthusiastic resource for the folks who make the world move on the micro level. I love the feeling of going into a barbershop or hardware store and knowing the faces of the folks in the chairs, behind the counter and in the aisles. Relationship and connection make those places beloved and long-lasting.
And no matter how big or small your company is, relationships are the key to satisfying customers who could – with the click of a mouse –easily find a better deal or faster response. So, whether you’re Fortune 100 or the employer of 10, your business depends on making your clients feel that your services and products are as accessible as asking the handy man for an Allen wrench or getting a trim from the barber.
I can help you build and sustain those relationships and promote your company’s good will here in town or around the world.
I am moved by all things Faith-filled and Spirit-Centered. My master’s studies focused primarily on theology, ethics and the arts. My deepest joy (along with writing) is helping people explore and understand their own questions about Life and Love and Purpose. To that end, I’ve spent a considerable amount of my adult life writing, thinking, researching and practicing ways to unburden the language of faith and religion.
Discourse around issues of faith has the potential to be inspiring but is just as likely to be volatile. Once a taboo topic in polite company and, especially, in the office, matters of faith and religion are playing a dramatic role in everything from elections to health insurance coverage to corporate cafeteria menus. It’s important that companies understand how their language around these issues impact their relationships.
Whether you’re creating an employee handbook, making a speech at a charity event or creating your holiday newsletter, you’ll need to think about the potential religious connotation of your message. I can help you stay true to your mission while respecting the needs of your clients and colleagues.
