We recently attended a Women Business Owners Network conference in Manchester, NH. One of the keynote speakers was Barbara Morrow, from the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester. Barbara shared her story with us and near the end of her presentation she read a quote from a recent e-Newsletter. The following was written by Barbara’s son, Chris Morrow, who runs the shop:
“A recent Vermont Public Radio commentary by author, businessman and public servant Bill Schubart entitled Vermont Elegy got me thinking again about what is special about Vermont, about bookstores and about civil conversation. There is tremendous pressure these days to commodify everything. We are pushed to think of our interactions in transactional terms – what can I get for what? But the richness of human experience, of relationships, cannot be commodified. We need to be vigilant in finding a balance between transactionalism and genuine relationship, between facelessness and community. As things get more virtual and competitive, we need to nurture our learned habit of connection so it will still have opportunity to grow.”
We were moved by Chris’ ability to structure his thoughts into such eloquent phraseology. It expresses much of what we believe to be true about our real estate business.
