So you've made it to the big leagues. People are knocking at your door trying to advertise on your site. You just sold your new line to a big department store. You're being featured in magazines. You were on the radio. A celebrity was just spotted with your product. You have 1000++++ followers on your blog.
Does that mean you get to make snarky remarks about "less successful" entrepreneurs/writers/designers/whatever?
(You may have guessed it...this IS a rant! Feel free to close this window now....no hard feelings!)
I saw a tweet from someone who has a successful e-business that said the following:
I am amazed at the # of press releases I get of Z-listers wearing brands I have never heard of. Seriously? These brands are proud?
(Not a big fan of profanity on the blog normally by the way..it started with that dang owl on Wednesday!)
We all start at the same spot. Yes, some of us make it. And yes, some of us do not. But we all contribute to inspire creativity within one another. And we ALL have been on the "Z list" at one point. EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.OF.US.
I am honestly shocked this person had the guts to tweet this. In the words of the Black Eyed Peas, where, where is the love?
Let's support each other when we are on the Z list and be HAPPY for each other when we are on the A list. EVEN if I am on the Z list and you are on the A list. Even if I am on the A list and you are on the Z list.
What happened to humility and pride in your character?
On a lighter note, have a fabulous weekend! Make a wish at 11:11 today! Can't wait to recap my first blogger meet up this Sunday!! :)
