Truck Stop Cooking Talking
Above all there’s nothing like Truck Stop Cooking and Talking. Reviewing the Spring Break Road Trip so far in Truck-Stop-Cooking-Talking-Bob Davis Podcast 987.
No Small Talk
First of all as I think about the trip and some of the experiences so far it’s a good time to take stock.
The Flying J
Driving All Day
Certainly I’ve been driving all day.
The Other Florida
People think of Florida as palm trees and beaches. And it has those things.
Recent Interviews and Experiences
Therefore my thoughts turn to one of the interviews in a recent podcast.
Someone who seemed to be doing what I call ‘holding space‘ for the community and her own passion for the work.
Take The Detour
Moreover this was one time where I allowed myself to take the detour and spend some time in the community.
Small Is Beautiful
For instance small business people these days are beset with admonishments to grow.
Even more we small business owners can be over motivated and ‘amped up’.
Striving for growth. To win.
On the other hand what if all this motivation causes a business person to lose themselves?
Community and Clientele
What happens to the community and the clientele as a result?
The Great Experience
In short we’re all looking for that ‘great experience’.
Where Does The Great Experience Come From?
In conclusion I am beginning to think that singular experience comes from business people who are more concerned with ‘holding a space’ or ‘holding space’.
To clarify ‘small is beautiful’ doesn’t mean poverty. It might just be a better way to create something truly exceptional.
Even more it’s not for everyone.
Small Can Be Beautiful
To sum up if you’re feeling down because your business isn’t on it’s way to being traded on the Dow, just remember small can be beautiful and truly special.
And A Pan Fried Steak
And so is a steak perfectly pan fried in the corner of a truck stop in Georgia.
