I just wanted to share something that I shared with my Facebook friends that I hope might inspire some thought for you.
A few years ago I was very concerned about mixing my beliefs about banking (Which are political to say the least) and business. I was scared because my business was sponsored by many of the major banks.
At the time I was choosing to be very British and worry about whether I could be vocal about what I believed.
Despite this I got more and more vocal after my wife Bliss Dixon inspired me to say what I thought was right.
Since then I decided to get very vocal, my business no longer became about winning sponsorship contracts from banks, and more about doing what I knew was right.
Last night I had a moment of gratitude.
I was invited to dinner hosted by the great banking blog FinextraÂ and IBM with Sir John Vickers (Who is in charge for the inquiry on fixing banking) and all the major executives in banking to debate my ideas. I gave everybody a copy of my book and if read I know that every major bank will know about things that I set out to educate the world on. They dont like what I have to say, but none the less I get to say it.
But one thing I do know. By doing what was right and going beyond some sponsorship deals with banks, I now get to share what I feel is important with the world every week on the news and have created a new business that is one thousands times more exciting to me than where I was before.
Today we all have a voice and you should not keep it silent. Why not share what your voice would say if you did not care about what people thought about you below??? I want to hear…Simon Dixon
