The heart of the matter

When I was around 10 or 11, I used to play a pretty elaborate game of make believe with my cousin. I was the owner of a catalog business and she was my employee.

We had a seasonal catalog, an extensive filing, repeat customers with whom we cultivated ongoing relationships, and a really awesome calculator to do all of my super important calculations (of course). I would say "My business is incredibly important; I've got the President's ear on this one."

I believe the games children play are the seeds of the future dreams and ambitions. That as children we already know what we were born to do. I have taken on the challenge of reigniting those childhood games in my daily life through Oishii, and am working my tail off to see if I can eventually get the "President's ear" on this one.

Sure, we sell lovely knit goodies that feel like you're wearing a hugs - but our greatest offering is our hope, our enthusiasm, and our undying persistence to be the change we want to see in the world.

Are you willing to join us?

what a beautifully written post... and how true. I was always a dreamer in search of something a little different. It's as if being where I am right now, was where I was always meant to be :-)
