IBO Toolbox – Where Associates May Become Friends

     IBO Toolbox is a social platform where we can write wall posts, publish press releases (blog posts), and share videos about our businesses. We are also encouraged to comment on and share what other members put here.

     We can also become associates of one another by sending and accepting associate invitations. When that happens, we get notified when our associates publish new press releases, and they get notified when we publish them.

     Associates may also message one another here on IBO. But we are strictly warned to not use the message system to spam about our businesses. We're to use the messages to get to know and be of help to one another, and only share business links if asked to do so.

     We're even encouraged to write press releases about non business interests that we have. Doing so lets people get to know us as real people, and not just somebody trying to sell us something.

     Last night I read two press releases that were definitely not geared toward trying to get us to buy any products or services.

     The first press release was written by Sigurd Skeie, and it was titled Who Has the Right to Choose Who Shall Live or Die? It is about a little girl who born with Aicardi syndrome. Sig cares very much about what this girl is going through, and the limitations being imposed on what kind of treatment she can get. He also asks for help with donations, even very small ones, that could be used to assist with her care.

     Sig's request for even small donations reminds me of the “March of Dimes” fund raising campaign back in the 1950's in which children all across America donated dimes to help in the fight against polio. Those dimes helped a lot of kids with polio to get the treatment they needed to save their lives. I know, because I was one of those kids who was helped by those dimes.

     Thank you Sig, for writing about that little girl who needs our help. And thank you, IBO Toolbox owners and managers, for making this a place where we can share about what we care about whether or not it has anything to do with businesss.

     The other very personal non-business press release that I read last night was by Michael Mikovich, titled, I Will Need Surgery Again. In it, Mike explained that he will once again need to have cornea transplants, as he did back in 2006, or else he will go totally blind. He has a very painful condition, is losing what sight he has, and it could spread.

     Most of us take our eyesight for granted. We use it every day, rarely giving it much thought at all. But consider what it must be like to be partially (like Sig) or totally blind (like what could happen for Sig).  Those of you who enjoy reading his blog posts, and appreciate his comments on what we publish here, have grown to care about him. We hope he won't go totally blind, and we hope the next surgery will work out so he can see even better, and be pain free.

    Let's continue to use what IBOtoolbox makes available for us to not just promote our businesses, but also get to know and support one another. Doing so will be making very good use of the time we spend here.
