Companies, get off your soapbox, shopping is not Politics!

4 Sep

Quick message to Levi’s, Marcus Lemonis, Dick’s Sporting Goods and the assorted banks et al:

Get off your soapbox!!! All I really want is to buy the goods I trust based on quality ease of access and price point. You’re consistent forays into politics to try and lure me into your agendas are highly annoying.

And so far- it’s also starting to seem like bad business. Now this isn’t a right left, 2nd Amendment or other issue.

The problem we have here is that the consumers did not ask for your opinion. You are simply throwing your hat into the ring when no one asked be part of the fight.

How about you save the add money and give the consumers lower prices so we can afford your goods and have money to put our kids in the after-school Sports without being broke after buying the equipment?

How about we just keep all the registers open at Walmart instead of having 30 of them and only opening 2 of them? How about someone bag my groceries instead of trying to get me to do the job that used to be factored into the cost of the items?

Now I’m not going to preach from the pulpit myself. What I want are for people to be able to make unbiased opinions for themselves. Don’t influence my news or my purchases.

Let me spend the dollars I actually earn how I actually want to.

It almost sounds scary that this article is being written.

It’s sad enough that my Nikes are crap quality wise, and cost almost triple what they did in the 90s. And now we’re going to add politics to the purchase?

In my world that’s adding insult to injury.

The waitress/er at Outback doesn’t tell me his/her opinion on the steak. He or she serves it and does excellent service and there’s a 25% tip. Period.

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC: WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM EN-MASS?

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC: WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM EN-MASS?.

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC: WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM EN-MASS?

May 21, 2013

Folks, I’ve been real blessed.

And I don’t mean what my parents did for me.

The last 4 months I’ve had the privilege of sitting with an amazing group of men and women who want nothing more than to give and or give back,  \You see there are people who never had who  refuse not give back.

There are also individuals who have had and refuse not to give beyond the scope of their existence.  And in a day and time where the average inner city community member is labeled as greedy, selfishly zealous, or just pure ignorant I’ve been blessed to sit and speak with leaders and visionaries who spend all of their time consumed in one mission: giving back.

On April 23rd I was privileged to sit with Javier Saldana of  RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC.  And this brother was the real deal.

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC is about giving back and job creation.  It is literally that simple.  Now I can break down their mission statement for 8 pages but it boils down to a sincere drive to put people back into the work force.  It doesn’t end there either.  the long term goal is to create a viable workforce with longevity.  not a flash in  the pan, one term measure of growth- but real numbers.  And beyond the numbers are the people.  Jobs have been a lot more scarce since 2007 or so.  And while there is a lot of talk about jobs and helping the average Joe- I don’t see much folks.

So What Can We Do?

We can support Javier Saldana and RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC.

Why?

BH: What does RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC do?

JS: We provide the skills and tools for employable longevity to those we serve.

BH: Expound on that please.

JS: In the world of business and industry there are jobs.  In fact there is a deep need, about 2 million open spots.  And while we cannot provide the exact training job for job, we can reinforce the basics and lead a multi-generational movement in workplace intelligence and etiquette.

BH: So you have a multi point plan, break that down deeper for my readers please.

JA: Simply put, there are three key facets: Employ-ability, interviews, and etiquette.  These facets, when mastered increase the ability of any individual to rise beyond their daily existence to become pivotal players, leaders, and integral parts of their communities.

BH: Is college the answer?

JA: Not always.  Simply put there are individuals that school simply isn’t meant for.  But they may got to their local McDonald’s and start from the bottom and rise to become a regional vice president or better.    Skill sets are vastly suitable for a large percent of the population, especially when we build them up so their esteem and self-profitability become more than concepts, and rise to be innate traits.

BH: So the main goal then is?

JS Sustainability.  It has never been about getting them a job and walking away.  The goal is to create a fulcrum of pure, sustainable, community based growth. In the end it isn’t jobs- it is a life skills set that leaves the community at large enriched.

BH: So if I hear you right you don’t advocate college over a career plan?

JA: Not at all.  As a species we are vastly diverse.  So to expect the same result from all of the species is redundantly ignorant.  instead we aim to meet the needs of the population as a whole.  From that perspective success becomes synonymous simply with action.

BH: Could we sum up the general flow then as 1st knowing your mindset. And 2nd acting accordingly?

JA:YES.
