There is a robust discussion going on in the “Comment” section above this post here. Just in case you don’t read the comments, I love what Ria from beauty by Saria had to say about our joint efforts to keep the micro beauty business safe and undisturbed. Here are her thoughts:
I am proud of the business I have built for myself.
I am proud of all the wonderful fellow business people I have met through various blogs, forums, etc.
I am proud to be a member of such an amazing group of people.
Most of all, I am proud that we stuck together as one united front and fought for what we knew was right.
We didn’t worry about the fact that our businesses may compete with each other.
We didn’t worry about the fact that we were taking on the government of the United States.
We didn’t worry about the people who said nothing could be done.
We just plowed ahead- led by some of the most fearless and knowledgable people- to try and reach our goal.
At the end of the day- we did just that!
Together we accomplished what I don’t think anyone has ever done before- we banded together, stood strong and changed a bill that would have served as our order of execution.
Never in my life have I been so proud to be associated with such an inspiring and caring group of people.
Thank you for leading us in a fight – that if fought alone – would have been lost…only through the leadership displayed by a hand full of brave folks, we united and made something happen.
So while I am proud of many things I have done in my life, I am most proud and honored to have been a part of something so important and amazing.
You have shown me that we CAN make change- that we CAN win!
With many thanks and all my gratitude!
