It's what I Do
What makes this job so much fun and so fulfilling are smiles. Smiles on the face of the young lady who just picked up that CD she's been looking for for what seems like forever.
The smile on the older gentleman who remembered the film from his youth and never thought he'd be able to see it again because he couldn't remember the exact title the only remembered one of the actors in the film
The sparkling eyes and infectious enthusiasm of the young tyke who has discovered new episodes of their favorite cartoon along with the grateful smile of the adults who now have something else to watch with the child.
What I do is not life and death, though I have helped pick music for someone's funeral and I'm sure some of the products I've sold have helped with conception. What I and millions of others do is bring a simple joy to people's lives.
What makes this occupation worth it are the smiles and thank yous. Those are priceless.
