It’s Okay To Talk About Me


Free Enterprise

One could hear a pin drop...or a lens, more appropriately, as my oldest daughter 
directed her finger toward the center of her eyeball. "SHHHHHHH" was all she had to say to me during the intense appointment. At some point in time ( I lost track as I dared not look at the clock, the sun setting, or anything else which might have 
made her anxious)my cell phone vibrated! The whirring was enough to set her off,too, so I took the call in the safety of the office building restroom! 

"Stacy" called. You know "Stacy." "Stacy Knows." "Stacy" a.k.a. Stacy Geisinger. 
She meets, she attends, she blogs and , mostly, she shares information. Her talents 
shorten the learning curve for friends and clients in the same way that Jo Rosenfeld Major Occasions does for its friends and clients. She and I are 24/7 information movers who find one another "on " line at "off "hours, at various charity functions, on Facebook and over the phone. The fee for her tips is a heartfelt "thank you." 
The same goes for my own clients. Smiles, props and future referrals are all the 
thanks necessary from them. Stacy does have a money making business. Jo Rosenfeld Major Occasions does work for compensation. The reality is that businesses make money. "Free enterprise" is not really "free" in the sense that advertising dollars, marketing fees, administrative costs, taxes and more eat up much of what would otherwise be pure profit. 

There are many times when Stacy of I work for "free." She and I donate time and services to charities in order to "pay it forward " to those with less fortunate 
life circumstances. Stacy and I do work for family and friends at or below cost. We hope to represent only vendors for whom we have respect and trust. 

Stacy Knows. Jo knows, too. Jo knows that there are whispers of some suburban women 
walking into offices and storefronts of celebratory talents asking for referral commissions after the fact. I question the notion of "free enterprise" if it means that anyone can masquerade as a legitimate referral resource on any given day. 
I question it and you might do the same! Put your time and faith in those who have 
earned the reputation of having built business networks which work for you first! 
Stacy knows and does. Joro knows and does, too. Let us share what we do best !
