The other day, I was reading a book in which a woman was described as “businesslike.” I instantly knew what the author meant: cold, no-nonsense, efficient, and without kindness or empathy. I did a double-take.
Why does “businesslike” mean cold and heartless?
I started writing about this, but I got carried away by my passionate rant, and it turned into a manifesto.
Warm and Businesslike
I’m an entrepreneur. I do business. But I’m not cold. I’m not heartless. I care about my clients and customers. I want to do good in the world and make money.
There are a lot of businesspeople who are cold-hearted and greedy. It’s time to change that.
Let’s put the love back into business.
