Hi. I am the founder/owner of MOM’s Organic Market.
My colleagues, my wife, and some friends are a little nervous right now- they know I’m starting to blog and are worried that I’m going to say something bad. I’ve been accused by those who love me (and those who don’t) of not having much of a “filter”. I suppose they have a point.
I love relating to people (my favorite books are memoirs)- and the best way for me to do this is to be vulnerable and hope that others engage with me- even if in disagreement. I love a good debate and exchange of ideas.
I believe that many of the world’s problems are caused more by silence than candor (Candor is one of MOM’s 4 Company Values). I sometimes think of that scene in Driving Miss Daisy when Miss Daisy attends a speech by Martin Luther King (while she makes Hoke wait in the car) about not the harm done by the racist segregationists, but rather the harm done by the masses of people who sit silently on the sidelines, devoid of the courage to speak up. Candor is a beautiful thing, so long as it’s done with respect and good intentions.
I believe that good things happen when people take off their masks, drop their guard, and be vulnerable (see video link), which is what I’ll be doing on this blog. Please engage with me…
