In the last national corporation in which I worked, we were
guaranteed to have a different management fad foisted upon us
yearly, from "gung ho" to "building paper airplanes" (don't ask)
to "Who Moved My Cheese?"
That's funny! I had no idea....my oldest son was born 7 years ago.
That's how far removed I am from corporate.
I can see how the book would be seen as somewhat of an annoyance.
I'm not really getting at the book though. Besides, you guys don't
work in corporate America. You're (for the most part) free-thinkers,
entrepreneurs, artists, and inspirations....right? You sure are
inspiring the heck out of me right now anyway.
I read a post a couple weeks ago. It said something like....the
price of gold is 600/oz....then a lot of, what are we to do?...I
guess we'll wait....let's see what happens....I hope it works out
I'm not 80 years old yet and I don't have 60 years of retail
experience under me, so (if you choose) you can hit delete based on
those facts. Or you can think about what you can do for yourself. I
saw a magazine article with a fine diamond pendant...suspended from a
black rubber cord. That's someone's answer to the price of gold being
600/oz. And they wear it! They buy it and they wear it.
I'm not going to be really pompous and spew about my personal
financial situation and how my way of thinking works, but I'm just
saying don't give up. You guys make the trends, you don't follow
Like I said, my son was born 7 years ago. My youngest was born 6
years ago. Before I got pregnant, I was 5 foot 3 and weighed 104
(kinda small) In pregnancy, I topped out at about 156. It was hard on
my body. After, whenever I walked, you could hear a loud popping
noise with each step. I couldn't sleep because of the nagging pains
down my right leg. The doctor said "you had 2 big boys, back to back.
That's the way it is. You'll probably develop osteoporosis too" Well,
I don't like the "way it is". The day before yesterday, I jogged 4
miles and last night, I slept great. I'm not some corporate slob,
sitting behind my desk taking a nap and nagging at you to stay in
your cube. I'm just someone who is saying, think about what you have
the power to change...instead of all the things you are powerless to
