What is success? Is it only financial? We don't think so!
So, what is it that we do exactly? We broker (act as agents) trade of products and services around the world. This involves the movement of physical goods (or people) and services across oceans/continents, borders, governments, currencies, etc. We have tried to simplify this process, however, by humanizing it! By putting a face to the 'transaction,' this either via travel or 'virtually.'
Additionally, our business model is unique: We don't charge for services, the customer/client shares costs with all participating. So, the more the merrier! This will cause customers/clients to help put together groups simply because of economics: s/he saves money!
How will we survive without the usual lust for profit? Watch us!
Our goal isn't money, but something else...
THE NEW CAPITALISM: The Ten Commandments:
1. MORE SHARING, LESS PROFIT!
2. TAKING LESS, GIVING MORE!
3. THINKING OF OTHERS, NOT JUST OURSELVES!
4. PRODUCING SOMETHING USEFUL (OF VALUE), RATHER THAN SELLING 'AIR!'
5. RESPECTING NATURE MORE, NOT RAPING THE LAND, MOTHER EARTH!
6. CUSTOMERS PAY FOR QUALITY, RESULTS, NOT MARKETING!
7. CUSTOMERS SERVED BY LIVING PEOPLE, NOT SOFTWARE!
8. LESS MACHINES, MORE PEOPLE WORKING.
9. MORE REAL, LESS VIRTUAL!
10. MORE LOW, RATHER THAN HIGH, TECH!
Of course, this has been suggested before, but no reason to give up on… We have to change, or will become extinct. We can't grow forever!
THE NEW CAPITALISM, SOME BACKGROUND:
The New Capitalism takes its cues from several 19th+ C. philosophers:
John Stuart Mill
This began as a movement called, PHILOSOPHICAL RADICALS.' They espoused social reform and education. They were generally opposed to the authority of the church and the restrictive privileges of the ruling rich (our 'the Owners'). The 'Philosophical Radicals' goal: The greatest happiness for the greatest number!
Let us then sacrifice by taking less and giving moresimple! Sharing more!
The old style Capitalism has failed us, or is it us that has failed Capitalism?
Thus, we need to change, to evolve, to be more open, more open to sharing!
The resources of the Earth are diminishing. World population grows. A challenging situation. There will be wars over air, if we don't smarten up, if we don't evolve to a higher consciousness!
And a 'higher consciousness = more sharing!'
GIVE MORE, TAKE LESS!
P.S. And maybe birth control might be a good idea?
