Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Halo-Orangees employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team?
B.L. Brown: Halo-Orangees’ employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team was inspired, developed, and birthed from my reaction to an unethical manager with whom I, B. L. Brown, had the pleasure—that is, in making me stronger—of working for.
My executive director had perfected the art of insulting staff members on a daily basis. I could only surmise that this leader saw the entire group of employees as confined to a small shoe box. In a one-on-one meeting with my executive director, he made the statement that another employee, who held the same title, was better than I was. In response, I informed him that this employee was not better than I, nor was I better than she. I also asked him to explain the basis for his statement. He stumbled, stuttered, and finally replied that this employee was better than I because she held two master’s degrees.
From that one statement, I instantly realized my true purpose in life. On that day, reckoning my experience with a newfound belief, the foundation of Halo-Orangees emerged. Halo-Orangees employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team Introduction is entitled, “Don’t Allow Anyone to Confine You to a Box, Disabling Your Growth”.
You are the only one who defines you, so don’t ever allow anyone to tell you who you are, or that you are not good enough (Excerpt ~ B.L. Brown).
