Leaders inspire people not through money or power but through HOPE

Just saw the movie MILK tonight. Wow. It reminded me a lot of the Obama election. The common theme both politicians urged their listeners was that the change was not in them, but in us all working together, united. “Yes we can” and “I want to recruit you” is about inspiring a movement driven by hope. HOPE for a better tomorrow is a powerful thing. Tim Ferriss said something like…”Obama isn’t going to fly into office in his super hero cape send an email and all will be okay.” It takes an army of people to create change. As business owners our ability to partner with causes we believe in and inspire change through our brands will make our shops not about the single purchase, but about the movement. Look at Tom’s shoes and learn.
