Topic – ‘What’s your “What Now?”‘
Paradigm shift – The conversation last night was focused on green and socially aware business. Many who attended are small business owners committed to these two things. While green and socially aware new products are generally higher cost on the front end they amortize to lower cost on the back end, (much the way investing in schools on the front end prevents crime, police and prison costs on the back end. “Front end work always prevents ‘back end’ costs of time and money” DS). Given the economic climate people are mindful of what they are spending ‘now’.
Another aspect of ‘green’ & ‘socially aware consumption’ is freecycle/recycle. After tonight’s conversation I pose the question “Is there a way to integrate ‘green costs with freecycle’ in a winning way?” for small business and ‘socially aware’ budget minded consumers.
If you attended the meeting tonight I invite any thoughts you have on the conversation. If you were not able to attend and have thoughts on the question I posed, please feel free to comment and contribute to the conversation .
It was great to see you all.
Look forward to seeing you at the next meeting at Linden St. on Tuesday September 28th. Feel free to invite a friend who would enjoy an engaging conversation about ‘What now?’
