So many businesses get it all wrong and alienate their customers. Then there are others that consistently hit the ball out of the park … just when I thought I couldn’t love them more, they ‘wow’ me again, and I fall in love all over again.
2 local businesses did that this week.
1. Workspace, where Your Money by Design conducts its money seminars, and I see my one-on-one clients, is in my ‘hood, gastown – a place I’m politically passionate about. Yup, I have idealist dreams of those of us with money being deeply respectful and compassionate towards those who are addicted, homeless, mentally ill and marginalized.
I hope businesses bring a good measure of that as they move in and integrate. Workspace just did a lovely, lovely thing last Sat. They pooled together some cash, and bought a whole lot of pizzas they informally gave away to people at pigeons park. How kind is that! Workspace, you make me swoon.
2. Sliced Tomatoes – if you’re run ragged and in desperate need of a civilized meal, these guys bring it to your door. It’s much better than mere meal delivery: they bring the food all good to go but requiring only the cooking on your part. Every.Single.Time. the meal is exceptional. Fresh, organic produce, all chopped to a perfect size. Perfectly seasoned meats. Truly gourmet. The money coach in me knows good value when I find it. Sliced Tomatoes – you gave me a wonderfully satisfying dinner last night, again, on an evening I needed it. Thank you!
