I have a business, or company if you will. I realize a company is in business to make money and the more it makes, the more it will grow. I also realize my company will never grow enough to be a “big” business, and that’s okay with me. I realize this because I have experience working for small, medium, and large companies.
In fact, when not working in my own company, I am currently working a W-2 job for a large company and I know that large company doesn’t give a damn about me, my feelings, or my family. They have proven that to me many times. Oh they pretend, and they go as far as producing propaganda proudly explaining how they care about their employees, but I’m intelligent enough to know they really don’t care about me (or any other employee) personally. That’s why I know I’ll never run a large company; I care too much about people.
I recently changed my LinkedIn Profile Summary to this – “Everything I do is to help people get through life a little easier…” Feel free to go to my LinkedIn page to read the rest. My point that I wanted to say here is that I (individually) and WE (as a company) do whatever we can to help as many people as we can, in many different ways. That has always been and will always be my personal philosophy in my life and work.
I think this world is difficult enough to get through. If I can help someone make it from one moment to the next a little happier, a little less stressed, a little more knowledgeable, or maybe even grateful just to make it to that next moment, I’ll be happy. If I can take them even beyond the one moment, that would even be better.
That’s why I do what some people consider weird abstract art. My purpose is to make it weird enough for you to look at it longer to try to figure out, but pleasurable enough to enjoy it for as long as possible.
We now buy houses and apartments to help people. We started that to help people going through difficult financial times so we could help them before the bank just takes their house from them. We buy houses and apartments so we can help people by offering more affordable housing than someone might find in that same area, or maybe better amenities for a better price.
We also make things and resell donated or discounted things we’ve purchased in an attempt to raise money to use to buy things that people need, or just give cash directly to people if that is needed more. We may start a non-profit or foundation someday, but we don’t want red tape or administrative costs getting in the way or reducing the giving.
If you know anyone who needs help in any way, please either tell them to get in touch with us or let us know about them. Preferably the latter, because most people don’t want to ask strangers for help.
