A simple act of caring creates an endless ripple essay
I truly believe that successful businesses have a duty to give something back to society. Introducing philanthropic projects has been one of the most rewarding parts of building my company for me. More importantly, I have found that these charitable acts of kindness spread very quickly — a simple act of caring creates an endless ripple effect. I started my entrepreneurial career by building my own e-commerce business and selling physical products on Amazon. This is where the idea for my current business was founded. Fast forward to the present: We have a suite of tools that help others achieve success in selling online.
Someday, when you are able to help somebody, you will do it? Would you have done the same thing? What will you do to help to add to this ripple? The family in front is struggling to pay for their purchases. Like Like. Like Liked by 1 person.

In so many ways, life is like water. It keeps rushing forward with great power, carving paths and sometimes being destructive. There are times we feel life has total control over us, making us feel like we are drowning in all that is asked of us or that our courses have already been carved. But, it only takes a small touch to create a ripple to change it's course and create new paths.
