If there was ever any doubt in my Dad’s mind that his six-year-old daughter would grow up to be a successful entrepreneur with a fierce sense of justice, equity and fair play in business, they were erased when he received this scathing letter she wrote to the tooth fairy.
My Dad recently found this tucked away in an old cummerbund he dug out to wear to a church function, and thought it would be worth scanning for me. I was roaring when I saw it in my inbox, as was my husband when he found it in his.
“Some things don’t change,” he said, chuckling.
“Well, hey… I lived up to my side of the bargain!” I replied.
He’s right though. Nothing gets under my skin more than unfair business practices, whether I experience them in everyday life or see them in the news. There’s no reason not to conduct business with honor and integrity. What goes around comes around, and you only go around once, so you might as well do it right and make it count.
I have to admit though, it’s pretty funny finding out I felt like this at six.
