“We all have a life story that can inspire others or to run a better business. Why not use that story and message to serve others and grow a real business by doing it? ~ Brendan Burchard
I might get dissed for this since I am living in Colorado, the home of Celestial Seasonings. Today I am writing about one of their competitors, Bigelow Tea.
The other day I bought a box Bigelow Mint Tea which is a blend of peppermint and spearmint. I noticed there is a short story on every box. I’ve enjoyed learning a little about this American company, and their blends, through the narrative they provide on the packaging and on their website. Call me crazy, but I find personal fulfillment in reading stories of business and entrepreneurship because they are inspiring, often creative and filled with ingenuity.
In this age of technology, company stories more frequently contain a melding of intellectual talent from several continents. It seems “Made in America” has become a foreign concept. Whatever your feelings are about this era of business, it has opened up doors of opportunity for college graduates if they are willing to travel the extra mile to pursue all possibilities.
Please keep your eye on this website. In coming days I will be posting a story about a member of We Write Steamboat, a networking group that I formed whose mission has been to “foster independent publishing success.” I will be shining the spotlight on an author who was born in Mexico, came to America and has gone from local writer to playwright in a short period. I look forward to interviewing him and sharing the excitement of his tale with our readers!
