I have repeated the story of ‘be the rainbow in someone else’s cloud’ told by Ms. Angelou many times when engaged in philosophical discussions and the mission of Hide A Heart for you.
It will come as no surprise to you that I decided to make Rainbow BonBon’s to give to friends who have been the action rainbows in my life recently.
If you have been following this blog, then you know I have a finite, it not a nearly non-existent advertising budget. So basically I look for ways to market Hide A Heart on air. I recently discovered a great marketing opportunity combined with a fantastic good for the community connection!
One of my friends works for Starbucks. After morning walks, I often stop by her store to order a grande ‘bold’ coffee of the day, room for cream. Sometimes I stop to pick up the coffee to take along on the walk simply because it makes me happy. I like feeling happy and figure my customers do too. By tucking a little extra ‘happy’ into every order is there value beyond the obvious immediate?
I joined a Networking Together group on Facebook that has turned into a RAINBOW move for Hide A Heart! I have developed a plethora of new skills and developing friendships.
I discovered Diane’s penchant for detail last year when helping her decorate for Christmas. I was arranging the Angels and Animals for the Creche incorrectly she pointed out. “Really? They have to be arranged exactly the same every year? Maybe you need to color code them”, I said teasingly with my signature Rhino brand mouth!
