The bed you make, is the bed you sleep in. My mom always said this to me, especially when it came to friends, dating, and lifestyle choices. On a rainy, stormy Wednesday night many years ago back in Trinidad as we light candles and looked for batteries for the flashlight, as electricity kept going off and on, I asked her what she really meant when saying that sentence to me.
With a big smile and loving glow in her eyes she said. Little Mr Trouble, you must always be careful not to make stupid choices, they come back to bite you, everything you do in life cost you somehow, sometime, or something. If the bed you sleep in is not a good bed, the sleep can’t be good. The same for your friends, relationships and life.
Remember when I talked about people walking as dog walking to earn. Well the project is almost over and we believe it can work in most markets and communities.
To start I don’t want you to think of walking people on a leach, I was expressing that the same affection can be used on people. Getting paid to spend time with someone would surprise you, but it should not, there are many seeking to share their time and life experience with a trusted stranger that will not judge or pretend to care, but be an honest, caring listener.( Think of dating services )
There are still a few more conversations to be had with members that were part of the project and I will post the results soon, and yes they all made money, some more than others, but we are understanding why and refining as we move ahead.
