The idea of Love First and Business has been met by a look of puzzlement, a smile and sometimes, an outright laugh. To be perceived as “loving” in the business world is often taken as a sign of weakness; being “too nice”, the sign of an easy target. To Love First is actually a process that takes great strength, personal integrity, commitment, and confidence.
More than a “Win/Win” philosophy, to “Love First” in Business asks you to consider the ENTIRE market, not just the buyer and the seller of goods or services. The environment, the manner in which you deal with people on a daily basis, the consumer, the workers, this is the application of the Love First Principle which demonstrates the understanding that our business cannot be separated from our community.
“Today, whatever my job or business, I will practice the philosophy of seeing all of the aspects of the situation and look for the solutions that uplift and inspire everyone I interact with.”
