The Competition of Creative Business
Anyone who knows me personally, knows without a doubt that I am extremely competitive. It's hardwired into my system through years of conditioning and competing in sports ever since I was a wee bit. Can you see me running up the steps in Philly with my Ginghers in hand re-enacting the scene from Rocky? *running with scissors is unsafe and should not be attempted
This convo came from someone I should deem 'competition.' It is one of many I've received and responded to. Yes siree, I wrote back answered her questions (not about pricing) and shared the whole TN2T kit & kaboodle. When it boils down to certain business aspects, for me at least- there is no us vs. them.
A great example, Lauren's gem of comment last month on my Create Change App feature at Sustainablog.
We share the same end goal. We're playing for the same team. There is enough to go around, and heck, if I could get my way I would want MORE people out there sharing the message, selling eco friendly designs, and taking action to make a difference in the world.
