Quote by Steven Jobs for Independent Locally-Owned Business Owners in the SF Bay Area

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

We admire all the indie entrepreneurs who choose to live their own life despite the hardships of running an independent locally-owned business. Many people have been forced to create their own job by starting a new business out of necessity. Steve Jobs said this wonderful quote that I think is appropriate to all the indie local business owners in the SF Bay Area.

We are witnessing how difficult it is to raise the Federal minimum wage, and how the biggest culprits of low wage jobs are investing in automation to reduce the need of labor. This leads to fewer jobs available at the biggest companies with the highest potential to hire. So hopefully more will be inspired to start living their own lives and provide jobs that won’t suck the life out of employees.

Companies Against Labeling GMO’s

Companies Against Labeling GMO

 

These big companies oppose labeling GMO’s. Very unfortunate considering they are responsible for feeding so much of our population. But it makes sense since all they care about are profits. Hope you’ll think twice before purchasing from these brands.

List of companies:

Kellogg’s - No shame in feeding our kids crap
The Coca-Cola Company - They must be putting something in their soda to get people addicted
Nestle - They claim to be the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company
Smucker’s - Their tagline “there’s more than you see” is very accurate
Pepsi Co - They must be putting something in their soda to get people addicted
Del Monte - Tagline “A Nutritious Snack Anytime” forgets to add “filled with chemicals we don’t want people to know about”
MARS - NOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo not chocolate!
Hershey’s - NOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo not chocolate!
Solae - Subsidiary of DuPont
ConAgra Foods - Sells packaged foods under various brand names, so watch out!
Bimbo Bakeries USA - Largest bakery company in the United States that’s owned by a Mexican company
Campbell’s - oh no! not the canned soups :(
