The Last Night of My 20s
Last night, November 8th 2016, was the last night of my 20s. And the night America voted into its highest office a shocking man. I’ll refrain from additional adjectives but I assume I do need to explain why I’m even bringing up the subject of politics here on the RMP blog. The way I run my business is innately tied to my belief system, so I think it’s only fair to share that with you here. As is true with anyone you hire, you should do so with transparency, confidence and trust in that person.
I believe in equality regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity (including gender expression), sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, family/parental status, or income derived from a public assistance program.
I believe in equal pay for women.
I believe in marriage equality and that love is love.
I believe in optimism and hope (after all, the Cubs did win the World Series).
I believe in creating a strong and healthy business in order to have the freedom to support non-profits.
I believe healthcare is a basic human right.
I believe pickles are gross along with ketchup.
I believe in learning the name of the guy who sits on the corner asking for change.
I believe my God is not so different from the God prayed to inside of temples or mosques or in the middle of a field somewhere.
I believe in hard work.
I believe in the importance of legacy.
I believe creating something beautiful can help change the world.
I believe travel is the best path to an open mind.
I believe bananas are best with peanut butter.
I believe in helping others and in striving for social justice.
I believe no one culture or country or approach to life is “best.”
I believe every single person’s story is important and that future generations will want to know yours.
