Can You Really Afford to Do Nothing?

There are never enough hours in the day. How often have we all said that, especially when you are trying to balance running a business, meeting family obligations, and serving the public? It’s a juggling act to be sure. Hence, when you think about adding the need to influence leaders into a schedule that’s already jam-packed, it can be a daunting challenge.

But here’s something to think about. If there is a bill that will help your business, city, or organization, I promise you there are people or groups that oppose the bill. And it’s quite likely they’re working hard to defeat it.

Unfortunately, I have heard advocates from all walks of life express many times they don’t have time to get involved. Time constraints are a reality for anyone who runs a business or is in public service. I get it. But no one cares about your organization, city or business more than you. 

So I can’t emphasize enough how imperative making time for advocacy and engaging legislators really is. Once you realize it, too, you will be ready to set aside time to get involved.*
