What Business Minds Theirs

Civility is on the minds of the new administration. Bringing unity to a divided country which encounters hate, disparity, and racism can only be done through respect and a greater tolerance for differences.

Where does uncivilized speech and behavior happen most frequently? A person might think that it occurs as an unexpected outburst between two individuals in a social setting or waiting in line somewhere in public. Although this is likely to happen occasionally, more typically, uncivilized speech is found thousands of times a day in retail stores, public places, and in workplace settings. Essentially the business space at any level has been affected by inappropriate speech. HR policy manuals, customer service expectations, successful team strategies, and good business practices are all thrown out the window. Managers and business owners do not hold employees accountable for what is said. Employees may claim they are practicing freedom of speech to be able to say whatever they want to customers or other employees. Freedom of speech does not prevent hate speech, however the right should be exercised in such a way that there is respect for all rather than hatred spoken. In most situations, it should be considered unthinkable to speak words of hate, insult, or gossip.

What used to be considered as bad business is now standard and acceptable. The way employees address customers has changed considerably. Thinking back on the first jobs I ever held, I would never have considered to speak inappropriately at work. It was drilled into me that only talking about work related business was acceptable at work, and speaking of anything outside of that was putting myself at risk of losing my job. Likewise, the expectation to always be available and eager to help customers, was the standard. It was unthinkable to be rude and inconsiderate to a customer, let alone insult them. Nowadays, businesses are easily influenced by anyone inside or outside the business, to communicate any propaganda that is encouraged even if it is not relevant to the business. Like parrots, they repeat whatever is told, at the expense of the business’ reputation.

I’ve experienced this from different perspectives. Having worked in retail stores, I have heard propaganda spread from employees out to customers at every register to every customer coming through the line or walking into the store. Inappropriate communication travels unsolicited from employees to customer more than in reverse. As a customer who frequents the malls and many local stores, I hear insults and gossip all day long. I have held almost every kind of job working at large companies, mid-sized and small companies, in restaurants, and in warehouses, as well as on a freelance business. In each of these settings it has been a problem with gossip spreading and name calling. Despite filling out feedback forms, nothing is done to rectify these awful experiences. If you are the most loyal customer, it does not matter. The loyalty is with the person who suggests damaging words must be said. Employees and managers do not protect their business by refusing to participate. Rather than focus on having exceptional etiquette and professionalism and customer service skills, they rather be the source of gossip and stone throwing.

I think retail stores and the workplace is a very good place to start cleaning up culture with civility. It is a big task to reverse rudeness in the workplace back to professionalism, especially when this generation defines professionalism so poorly. It starts with each individual making a choice to be respectful in how they speak and act toward everyone. By doing this we as a nation can revert back to a higher standard of civility.

In my opinion the administration can impact a higher degree of civility by fining businesses that spread gossip and propaganda. A nationwide civility program can be put together to encourage all walks of life to step up to a higher level of respect and tolerance for one another. People need to be educate on the damage that can occur from hate speech. Intolerance for others, causes disunity which leads to racism, prejudice, and civil war outbreaks. It’s beyond being a “color” war. It’s an off-color communication issue for all races that needs to be reeled in. A rebirth of civilized culture in the United States is everyone’s business.

Prayer for Our Country

Intercession For Our Land
Dear God, I pray You will be put in Your rightful position in this country. Give the leaders of this nation the wisdom and integrity to lead our nation in the best direction. Give each one discernment I pray, when making decisions or drawing up the legislation and laws that they pass. And may the decisions that they reach be godly and wise.

As the days become increasingly dark in our country, I pray that the light of Your love will shine on this land. May peace reign in our nation and protect us from those that would seek our downfall, I pray.

I really thank You that you have placed me in this land and I am grateful that I am a citizen of this nation. Thank You, Lord, for my country. In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Amazin’ Affiliate Shopping

Shopping has evolved since the first shopping experience back in 9,000 BC when people exchanged sheep and cattle as a means of trade. In 800 BC the first markets came into existence in Greece. Markets were brought inside within structured stores by the 1700’s when the first mom and pop stores opened up in the United States. These family-owned businesses and drug stores had items such as groceries, fabric, toys and tools available for sale. A century later, the department store made it’s debut. Bloomingdales, Macy’s, and Sears were the first large retail businesses which are still in business today, nearly 200 years later. Transitions for shoppers also became more refined with the payment process and tracking sales. In 1883, the first cash register was invented by James Ritty, making checkout easier. In 1920, the credit card was introduced as a means of payment. Expansion for retail was inevitable. It wasn’t long afterward that the first mall opened up in 1922 in Kansas City. In 1956, the first indoor shopping mall opened up in Edina, Minnesota which is similar to the malls we have today. Several stores clustered together were all found in one place for the delight and convenience of shoppers. Malls also naturally became a venue for socialization with friends and family. Large retail stores, known as “big box”, opened in the 1960’s including Walmart, Target, and K-Mart. One stop shopping became available to shoppers saving time and cost. In the 1990’s, e-commerce launched with Tim Berner’s invention of the World Wide Web. Amazon, one of the largest e-commerce businesses, was established in 1995. Over the last 30 years, e-commerce has become an efficient way to shop as access to the Internet has become incorporated into society.

With the expansion of e-commerce, one would think that there would be a decline in the business for retail stores. Retail and online business work hand-in-hand to generate more business. Businesses who use multiple channels to advertise and sell products are able to target more customers. Physical stores still have excelled at earning 80% of business sales the last 5 years, while 80% of customers shop online. Online businesses offer the convenience of 24/7 shopping, shopping from anywhere, and reminding customers of what they’ve search for, re-targeting consumers with online ads.

Driving into a New Year

If anyone knows me, they know I love my car. If there was every a good major purchase, it was buying a new Toyota Scion tC in 2007. Don’t get me wrong—my previous car was nice. I had the Honda Civic that everyone seemed to have, and drove it around like it was my sports car. Someone else must have thought so too, because it was stolen right out of the driveway of the house I was living at. Fortunately, it was already 10 years old and I had a good job so I was able to buy a new car.

When I first went car shopping, the style of the Honda cars had changed so I decided to take a look at Toyota. I went to a local dealership to look at the Corollas. When I drove into the dealership, my eye was immediately drawn to a new model. I evaluated the Corolla and then decided to ask about the model I had seen when driving into the dealership. I found out was the Scion tC. The car was the next model up from the Corolla and the price was reasonable. It wasn’t long before I decided that was the car I wanted. I ended up buying it at another Toyota dealership and selected from the colors they had available as a match to the price I was looking for. The price listed for the car was set, there was no need for haggling and negotiating. The process was really easy.

The Scion tC is considered the spiritual successor to the Toyota Celica in North America, made to appeal to the millennial market. The name tC stands for “touring coupe.”. Beginning in 2011, the tC is sold as the Toyota Zelas in the Middle East, China and South America, a name derived from “zelante”, Italian for “passionate” or “zealous.”.

One of the major factors I was considering when buying a car was the ease of putting my bike into the vehicle. With the Honda Civic, I had to tie the bike to the back of the trunk on the bike carrier. Although the Scion tC appears to be a compact-sized vehicle with a trunk it is actually a hatchback. The backseat pulls down extending the trunk area into the inside of the car. I could detach the wheel of my bike and slide it right into the back. The Scion tC also had a sleek interior and a stereo system that could adjust how the music was played from the speakers. I had previously had several car accidents in other vehicles, and was thrilled to find out I could control the music from the steering wheel. Music could be turned on and off and I could switch between radio preprogrammed stations, AM/FM, and CD all with my thumb from the steering wheel as I drove. The sunroof/moonroof lets extra light and air into the car while driving, and it opens up like a bat-mobile with its all-glass roof (which also is easy for cleaning). The car has bucket seats, front, side, and steering wheel airbags, and is spacious. On the exterior, the car has beautiful alloy wheels, maneuverable mirrors, and angled taillights for a concise rear of the vehicle.

I would have preferred to have this car to drive to work everyday and park it in a garage at home, as it deserved. It has became my most reliable friend the last 13 years, and an equal match to the affinity I have for the reliability of my insurance company. I have driven it to work, but I’ve also used it for recreation and life changes. I’ve driven it in and out of state on road trips, loaded the bike in it for rides around the lake, have moved constantly with it in lieu of movers while constantly being in housing transition, and have lived in it for extended periods of time.

The Toyota Scion tC has been a very enjoyable car with its sleek design, ergonomics, and safety features. For a car that was designed for most Scion owners to drive to the office and around town, mine has had a rough ride, but it has endured with its durability. It’s been in the body shop many times, including just a week after buying it, after being rear-ended on a major highway in Dallas, and was hacked 1,000 times on the side door gashed by a knife from people who hate me, and others have stolen it many times for joy rides while I was not around, I also managed to take a Sonic sign down pulling in for ice-cream, and I have had at least 5 front-end bumpers put on. The low-jack installed in it may have help catch intruders who took it off property, but I know now this was an unnecessary expense for me. I think with today’s technology, any electronics and security system can be bypassed. With all of this being said, there are only 2 drawbacks to the Toyota Scion tC. One is the paint can easily come off. The second is that they don’t make it anymore.

As I drive into the New Year with my car, I am thankful for all my car and I have been through and how it has kept me safe in so many ways. Even more important than the beautiful design of this car and all of the aesthetic features I love, the Toyota Scion tC has been a safe car with great performance. I’m at 161,000 miles and my life is far from the life I had 13 years ago. I am hoping this car lasts long enough until work can be found, despite an ongoing job search that has been as long as the time I have had this car. It’s not likely I will be able to afford a new car with my next vehicle and I am disappointed the Scion tC is no longer being made. However, my experience with the Toyota brand has been a very good one and I can only hope Toyota manufacturers a model similar to this one in the future.

Be safe on the roads tonight.
Happy New Year!

AirBNB Stays

Book a stay using AirBNB. AirBNB hosts travelers in homes throughout the United States and internationally.

AirBNB
Enjoy the comforts of being at home, while you are away from home. You may be looking for a private get-away to spend some time with your significant other, a place for your next family reunion, or as a place to live for a few days in a different setting. Homeowners list their homes on AirBNB and prepare a room or the entire house as lodging for guests. Hosts are welcoming to guests accommodating for everything needed during their stay including towels, bedding, extra food and toiletries, and recommendations to local landmarks and tourist sites.

A few years ago I used AirBNB and booked a few stays throughout the Dallas area. Booking a stay was easy. Searching a city for listings during a certain time range, I was able to see what listings were available. AirBNB shows listings on a map with price markers that can be clicked on to show details and photos of the home. The listing’s page also shows the details of the price including cleaning fees, extra guest fees, and other added on costs. Everything is paid for in advance. After booking a stay, I was able to locate the home on a map and then travel to the home to arrive by check-in time.

Hosts were very friendly at all of the places I stayed at. Only one place did not have a host, but there were details of where I could find the key. Many of the places have keyless entries with codes set on the door. I was welcomed when I arrived, shown to my room, and asked if I needed anything. I typically did not see the homeowners much. Whether they lived on property or not, they were usually not home. In some of the homes, there were multiple AirBNB guests. We might share the kitchen or bathroom, but for the most part everyone stayed to themselves. Everyone was friendly and professional. There never was a concern for safety within the house or with other guests. If anything was needed, the hosts were happy to see what they could do to provide it, if at all possible.

Just recently I came to Oklahoma and had a chance to help with preparing and renovating several AirBNB homes near Fort Sill Air Force Base. Ft. Sill is 81 miles southwest of Oklahoma City and 54 miles north of Wichita Falls, TX. With a city population of 100,000, it retains it’s small town feel, but has all of the major businesses to be found in any city such as Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, Lowes, Big Lots, DollarTree, Aldi, and local food establishments. Almost everything is within a couple of miles. Lawton, Oklahoma is home to Ft. Sill, Cameron University, the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, and 3 lakes including Lake Lawtonka, Lake Ellsworth, and Elmer Thomas Lake. There are also several museums including the Museum of the Great Plains, The Fort Sill Museum, and The Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center. One landmark you won’t want to miss is Elmer Thomas Park with its Patriot Pavilion and tributes throughout the park to the United States and those who have served. This park also has hundreds of prairie dogs who live in burrowed holes and pop out above ground to greet visitors.

There are 5 AirBNB homes in Lawton, OK which are within a mile or more radius of each other owned by the same owner. Three of the AirBNBs are cottages with the traditional stoned exterior to the houses which is characteristic of the pioneers who first settled in Oklahoma. The Carobelle Cottage is a beautiful cottage which is cozy and spacious. It has wooden floors, a modern kitchen, long kitchen table in the dining room, a living room which can seat 8 people with a TV and a remote control operated fireplace, 3 bedrooms with queen sized beds, two single beds, and a crib area, and an outdoor hot tub. This home can host up to 10-12 people. Hunterston Cottage, has a rustic feel to it with its hardwood floors, a large dining table, a family style kitchen, living room with 3 couches and TV, enclosed colorful front patio, and 2 bedrooms with queen sized beds. It sleeps four people. The home is decorated with one of the world’s largest collections of weeping gold Savoy China, as well as other art collectables, and a cubby filled with a collection of tea. The large yard has wooden lawn chairs for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors with stacks of firewood in the background and an outdoors barn shed. The Cameron Cottage, located off of Ft. Sill just a few blocks from The Cameron Cottage, is under construction with plans to be ready later in 2021. This cottage was just recently purchased and is currently being renovated. It has 3 bedrooms, hardwood floors throughout the home, a living area with a piano and oversized couch, a formal dining area, dining nook, and a kitchen.

Besides the 3 cottages, there are two themed AirBNB homes: The Pumpkin and The Wizard World Cottage. The Pumpkin which is painted pumpkin orange on the exterior, and decorated with themed pumpkins and owls on the inside, is available for AirBNB bookings and sleeps 9 people. The interior of the cottage walls are painted in varying shades of pumpkin orange throughout the home. This cottage has two queen sized beds, three single beds (2 of which are a bunk bed and the other a daybed with trundle), one full sized bed, and a crib. The kitchen with an industrial feel to it is nested in the middle of the house complete with all kitchen utensils. It shares space with a full sized washer and dryer in the same room. Outside there is a bonfire pit and grill that guests can enjoy. The living room has a collection of colored miniature owls around the perimeter of the room along ceiling high shelving. There are large comfortable couches for visiting and a TV. The dining room just inside the entryway is across from the living room. The home is decorated with macrame owls, ceramic owl artwork, and paintings that match the theme of the home.

The Wizard World Cottage, is scheduled to be open the first week in January. This home has a fantasy theme to it—one of unicorns, wizards, and Harry Potter. The house has dark brown hardwood floors throughout the home. With its modern feel to it, the bathroom which recently was remodeled, has stainless steel fixtures and a newly tiled shower and. The shower is made of black and white tile and is decorated with purple stained glass colored tile. It is in the same style of the bathrooms found in the The Pumpkin Cottage. The kitchen is decorated in black, purple, and white with unicorn and silver curtains. The color scheme is carried throughout the kitchen with purple kitchen utensils, and two colors of purple colored pots and pans stored on white shelves above the counter space, and a purple hand painted back splash wall made of tile that stretches the length of the kitchen. The magical theme continues throughout the home with painted doors in varying tints of purple, matching curtains, and a unicorn shower curtain in the bathroom. Guests can relax sitting on the newly-upholstered plush, purple couches with large over-sized pillows made of purple colored shimmery fabric in the living room and watch TV or visit. The dining room has a low vaulted ceiling with a beautiful wooden table that seats 8 people. Themed artwork is being selected to decorate the home. This home sleeps 5 people with a king sized bed, a full-sized bed and a single bed.

Books

Books by Ronald Rolheiser
Ronald Rolheiser, a Roman Catholic priest and member of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, is President of the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas. He is a community-builder, lecturer, and writer. As a Catholic author and religious speaker he is influential to those who face struggles in life. His books address the lonely, the distraught, the abused and wounded, the forgotten, the heart of those struggling with God, and those longing for God on a deeper spiritual level. He shows how God is present amidst suffering, restlessness, anxiety, jealousies, and obsessions and the importance of prayer as part of everyday life. In his books, he explains that each life seeks fulfillment for our innate longing for God. Fr. Rolheiser brings empathy, hope, consolation, and inspiration with his writings. Once you read one book, you’ll want to read his entire collection! I enjoyed all of them.
