    I was disappointed with your email message this week. I love your content as it relates to my business (my company has utilized your services) but I did not feel it was necessary to include this paragraph:

    “Another way is to support legislative efforts to get automatic rifles out of the hands of civilians. It was thrilling last night to watch Senator Chris Murphy and others stand up on the Senate floor and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Hopefully, real conversations will ensue, and real change will happen. Thoughts and prayers are not preventing gun massacres. Call your representatives and tell them that it’s time.”

    I love your services, but this is a personal issue for so many of us on both sides and I didn’t feel it was the proper channel to discuss. I felt the sentence prior was enough to inspire as I look to your emails for business inspiration, which I will continue to do.

      It’s my newsletter so it’s my opinion – and it’s an issue that I feel very, very strongly about. I had to express myself – I can’t remain silent on this any longer – and I applaud the efforts of the legislators that were not standing silent. Enough is enough. End gun violence.
