You are What You Sell

I. Who Are You? (And, do you really want to know?)

II. You Are What You … (If I think about a pizza all day long do I become a pizza?)

A. Reading

B. Hearing

C. Thinking

D. Measuring (Or, Standardized test scores as a basis of reality.)

E. The Chicken and the Egg (and whose turn is it to make dinner?)

F. Money and Art

G. You Are What You Sell. (Unless You Sell Donuts)16

III. Conclusion.

reality we can’t get to it. Other than a “Yea right” response, I do not know that Berkeley has ever been refuted.

Regarding the forest, in his essay on History, Emerson says that a lady told him that for her while riding, the woods always seem to wait as if the genii that inhabit them suspend their activity until we have passed. Because owning and operating a business can be so challenging and rewarding, interesting and exciting, enveloping and encompassing, this answer may work as well for many of the small and medium size business owners who are my clients.19 To quote myself20 “Running a small business is like having a small child. When it cries, you have to be there.” And because you have to “be there” when the small business needs you, owning and operating the business is more than a vocation; it is more even than a

career. It is a way of life. In that sense and for that reason, especially for many of my

business owner clients, it is probably true to say “You are what you sell.”
