Kindness Is The Key






Kindness can't be bought or sold
for gold which you can hold or mold.
Kindness is a smile which can go miles through
someone's trials.

Kindness is a helpful deed
for someone in need.

Kindness is a helpful deed
for someone in need.

The kindness you show
May return to you.

What is your definition of Kindness? Do you treat your patrons and fellow Etsians with kindness or are you climbing the business ladder without any regard to the consequences towards others? According to the dictonary Kindness is a noun, "a state of being," "a behavior."1 So kindness is a trait that must be learned and practiced. I challenge you to consider ways to implement kindness in your business. Let Etsians be known all over the web as,"those kind,considerate people." I am not calling anyone out, I just know and hope that Etsians are my demographic so I want this article to be applicable.

One of tangible ways Ju's Creations demonstrates kindness is by donating to various charitable causes. So, it works like this, the more inventory sold the more money will be donated. So as you consider the various gifts you need to purchase throughout the year, consider how Ju's Creations may help you meet your needs.

I still would like to donate the proceeds of this item to Cora's Playground, so as you help me, I will help her.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week!

Ju
