My personal philosophy in the establishing of a customer relationship— whether it be a one-time purchase or cultivation of a longtime friendship—is summed this way: Bring all of my background and experience to a sensitive, daily embrace of activities that provide each customer with a genuine experience of care, comfort, knowledge, responsiveness and responsibility. I live this philosophy. Every day—from early in the morning till late at night. When you come in to my website, or send me an email, I want you to know and feel that your need at that moment is my need. That your interest is my personal interest. Or your concern is my concern—to warmly and intelligently address and remedy. I value trustworthiness in others, and strive to earn your trust.
Why is this? Well because my background is largely in nonprofit. For many years I was at the executive level of financial planning and organizing for the Hellen Keller national nonprofit. Before that I was involved at a high level in various financial institutions and owned my own business. But it is the nonprofit mindset and experience that most shaped me. The intention of a nonprofit is to serve the public good-to bring help, hope and opportunity to individuals.
I've taken that intention from my nonprofit experience and applied it to my online business. In effect, I want to serve you, as a customer of mine, with a sense that you are being individually helped—provided with informative knowledge, given excellent choices and purchase prices, guided to connections you may not have made, attending to your purchase, shipping and follow-up needs with surety and deference.
I know what it is like to be a customer well taken care of, and one that is not well treated or regarded. A significant part of my experience both professionally and as a consumer goes toward making your experience pleasant, satisfying and memorable. I'd love to have you come back. I'd love to have you make my store one of your favorite shopping places. I think about creating that environment for you every day.
