When you make a purchase or make any decision, it affects society as a whole. Business owners not only produce a product but hire people and serve a consumer at the same time.
There’s this current notion that to better our society we need to get the government involved.
If we want people to have better healthcare, to be better off financially and have access to the things they need, we need to have a reality check - the worst and slowest way to make sure all of these things happen is by waiting for government to do something about it.

When we wait for government to do something about education, about healthcare and about the economy, we have resulted to the slowest and least effective method of doing so.
Remember, it’s up to you.
