“Business is always a struggle.  There are always obstacles and competitors.  There is never an open road, except the wide road that leads to failure.  Every great success has always been achieved by fight.  Every winner has scars…The men who succeed are the efficient few.  They are the few who have the ambition and willpower to develop themselves.”  Herbert N. Casson

Cash Mobs

One Year of Mobs

Well then.

We held our first Cash Mob just over a year ago at Visible Voice Books.  One year later, I think it’s safe to say that Cash Mobs is a global phenomenon.  We’ve been getting a ton of attention from the UK, Germany and Australia over the last few weeks as people over there are catching on; Spain is emerging rapidly (who knows, maybe these will help fuel their recovery?); and the US is still going strong, with tons of mobs being planned for the holiday season.

If anything, this has shown us that it is the individuals in each community that are going to help bring about the revival of their communities.  It’s not going to come from outside, and anyone who tries to tell you that it will is selling snake oil.  One year later, it is still up to YOU to take responsibility for your community.  Each person has a part to play in the vibrancy and vitality of their neighborhoods.  If you’ve organized or participated in a Cash Mob, you know just how true that is.

To all of you who HAVE organized or participated in a Cash Mob, thank you.  You’re part of the solution, and together we’re going to make a difference – because when we each do a little, we all do a lot.
