Being a creative is amazing..it allows you to consider you can do anything and be anything …but the reality is that is not true…I can not really BE anything…I am already something…
Yes I can invent a bib, Yes I can get on a TV show, Yes I can commit to my business beliefs and turn down an offer ( never seen on the show itself)
Yes I can pretend to be moral and upstanding about something I pretended to care about but the truth is…in the end…
As my father said…” you know nothing about this business”
I could have taken that to heart but instead I took it as a challenge and set out to prove how I could do it- how I was of value in the monetary world.
But getting out of that “Challenge” that CHaracter is what was head-
Because I had that five minute of fame on SHark Tank I created a thread with one of the most famous TV shows. IT gave my idea an international presence and even some four years later keeps airing..
I think I even have a membership to SOHO house because of it so how could I Let that go..?
The truth is the Fame is not my purpose. I am a problem solver and a healer like my father and I had a respect for the performing because part of my family were singers but in the end… I am most happy one on one and in my own company or healing people.
Plus bibbitec was in the end a business and from my experience you CAN NOT be a fullly ethical or altruistic person rather in business. You just can’t! There are corners and ideas you have to soften in order to move on and so staying TRUE to your mission is not always best for business and usually your mission is based on an idea. Like mine was..that in the end FALSE
FOr example. Made in America was important to me because CHina had made toxic baby toys my kids played one…( wa this all a revenge scheme) but in the end we have prisons filled with innocent people getting paid pennies to make MADE IN AMERICA for private companies and so by promoting made in AMERCIA I ended up promoting something I didn’t want to align with. ( The factory I used wasn’t a prison but they had to drop bibbitec * and 300 other small business) because prison factories were out bidding them for other deals and so they had to return to working fully with the military …which also- I have heard can hire those prisons to build their stuff I am told)
SO what I am saying is that my truth is a desire to live to my own moral compas in all aspects of my life. With my friends, with my family, with my work. It has led me here..to writing..just me and the screen creating a two way conversation involving my soul searching journey.
