Selling with words

“Writers write” ~ Thom Hartmann

I just finished reading this short piece on The Middle Finger Project. At times I’d like to think of myself as somewhat of a wordsmith but this girl nailed it. I don’t think I’m going to look at a mirror quite the same way again.

Every 10 minutes, someone dies

Fate? I’m not sure. I don’t really believe in fate.

I met with a potential client Monday looking for insight with a social media campaign to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Two days prior at 1:12 a.m. I received an email from a friend about someone close who had just passed away from Leukemia. His battle lasted less than a year. He was told his cancer had gone into remission. In November that was prognosis changed.

I believe things happen for a reason. I also believe I may not understand those reasons. (This is the bit that drives me a little batty.)

I guess you could say I’m on board with this campaign. If I pay attention to signs, and sometimes I do, I have to help. It was meant to be. Yeah, I know I don’t believe in fate.
