Did You Miss Me During My Summer⛱️Break?🙃- Lyceum Bulletin by Martin Lindeskog - Issue #23

Have you missed me? It is OK, if you say no.😉 I have had a "wobbly" summer vacation, with some interviews with artists, participated in virtual events, and got mentioned on a radio program, as a tea expert.

What have you been up to during the summer period?

For Your Information: I will celebrate the festive season from December 13, until February 2, 2021, and then have my next summer break from the Fourth of July, until September 2.

Business Philosophy

Do you shop at Trader Joe's? Here is an excerpt from Jaana Woiceshyn's post, No appeasing of woke critics: Kudos to Trader Joe’s—and to its customers:

Fortunately, Trader Joe’s customers had not succumbed to seeing everything around them as a sign of racism and urged the company not to cave in to the petitioners’ demands. They rather valued TJ’s products, including the way they were labeled and marketed. The messages from customers reminded the company of the value-creation principle and led it to revise its response to the petition. It issued the now well-circulated statement, which read, in part:

“We want to be clear: we disagree that any of these labels are racist. We do not make decisions based on petitions. We have heard from many customers reaffirming that these name variations are largely viewed in exactly the way they were intended — as an attempt to have fun with our product marketing.”

Only by adhering to the principle of value creation can business succeed and survive in the long term. If it turns its focus away from its function in society, the creation and trade of material values we depend on, business cannot profit. Trying to appease every critic (as opposed to correcting genuine mistakes) would divert business from its positive focus and undermine its profitability and ability to survive.

I tweeted the founder of Trader Joe's and a podcast on Trader Joe's culture and products:

Good Life

How do you prepare for the autumn? I would like to pre-order a FEND starter pack, but I am not sure that the company, Sensory Cloud, is shipping outside the United States of America.
