Experts tell us to not mix religion or politics with business.
When it comes to certain things in life, I am my own expert. I do not stand behind too many leaders on this planet. I listen, I learn, but I do according to my own beliefs, intuition, and wisdom.
I purposely do not mix politics with business. I understand politics well enough to know who I want to vote for, but I do not study politics enough to want to argue about it. Politics is one very hot to touch topic. And honestly, let’s have a safe place where we don’t have to hear about politics. One of those places: here.
My personal definition of religion is: a group or individual that believes and practices a faith in their God.
As a business woman I treasure our freedom to talk about politics and religion.
If I say, “I wish everyone would feel empowered to build upon their God-given talents, those given to you before your birth.” My intention is not a push of my faith. My intention is solely based on humanity, my ingrained care for people.
If I quote scripture, which I do from time to time, especially on Twitter, it is what motivates me. It is my faith. Never do I expect anyone to follow my religion. But I will not hide it. It is who I am. A non-denominational Christian.
Do I mix religion with business? In the respect that I do not hide my faith, yes. It is a part of what I was designed to do. And I know it.
What prompted this blog post? Watch Twitter, Facebook, and blog posts. There is a wide-range of beliefs in the blogosphere (as much as I hate that term), and I feel there is a lot of fear. My own self, I love people regardless of what they believe in. I will not support people who do not respect human lives.
