I have so many things to blog about and I have quite a few Etsy sellers to feature. I will put the first one up later today. This topic is at the top of my mind right now. I recently ran into a moral dilemma at my job caused by the owner of the business I work for. My response to it is going to decide whether I keep my job or not. To put this in perspective I started working here in August after being out of work for over a year. I am single and have no back up income and I live in a small town where unemployment is still over 20%. My son recently joined the army and one of their motto's is "do the right thing even when no one is watching". I like that, I think that is a good way to live your life. I also believe that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity and I try to live my life that way as well. My employer has put me in a position where I can ignore my beliefs and morals and keep my job or live up to what I believe and in all likelihood lose my job. So what do I do? What would you do? I already know what I'm going to do and to be honest I'm really scared, but I know it is the right thing, and at the end of the day I have to live with myself.
I know this doesn't seem to have much to do with crafting and selling on the surface but in reality it does. It has to do with how you conduct yourself in your life and with your business. I believe that if you stay true to yourself you will find success. It may be a long, hard road but it will happen.
