Storytelling is the fundamental vehicle for human communication.
I recognized many years ago – long before I began writing publicly – that I’m inclined to frame all my experience as a story. I commonly step into a conversation with, “Well, here’s the story…”, or as my father used to say, “That’s the story…”
The underlying mission of Essential Confection is, and will always be, to partner with and support orgs that feed others.
It’s how I wish to show up in the world.
So, as an Essential Confection guest, I’ll be asking for your personal recommendations of people or organizations who are doing good work in the world – innovative or dedicated ways of feeding people. That includes teaching children about growing and choosing quality food. We want our guests’ org recommendations to be our partners.
Please join Essential Confection guests in our broader mission. Our participation is producing simple, high-quality confection products of outstanding flavor and texture.
We want you to be our partner. The Ultimate annual purchase is a gift for yourself, your family or business associates.
One of life’s biggest challenges is to walk as yourself. Society has its way of conditioning out our unique abilities in favor of conforming. For me, walking that authenticity is the creation of and dedication to founding a confection company that produces simple, elegant confection products of the highest quality.
Of equal weight is my desire to serve others by contributing in small ways to the events of their lives. I live, by extension, through gifts given by our friends.
Underlying it all is my commitment for this company to support organizations that feed others and to support food systems that nourish and heal.
Though not quiescent, the evolution of this company has been, and will continue to be, a process. I take the risk of putting into place whatever will be required to bring this organization to its full potential. Fulfillment and joy are by-products of exploration.
So, this is a personal note. Essential Confection is my company and today is the day. In the analogy of the chrysalis, that protective state or stage of being, what evolves upon its release is the internally complex but outwardly elegant creation.
I hope you’ll join us. www.essentialconfection.com//Q3-2020
