Okay, thank you for this explanation @delishtreats. Your perspective is now clearer to me. I can admire you acting on your convictions, as that is not common. At least in American culture. And … I am not the least bit offended or feeling judged … 😊

We come from different philosophical viewpoints and that is okay. “In here” we are adding value to our Steem blockchain, each in our own ways, with adherents to both …

”I must say that I was surprised that so many people don't realize how their meals come to the table.”

We share this in common, although I am sure you have a better foundation of understanding than I, as you grew up on a farm. I have only admired “what it takes” mostly from a distance. I refer specifically to this in my “Big Hole Valley in Montana” post, as people too often take so much for granted …

”I also struggle with my time recently. The more I work on the business plan the less time I have to spend here. And it's going to be less and less and less..”

I have always been very open “in here” about the time commitment. In the “real world,” I am very (perhaps too much so …) sensitive to raising expectations that can’t be met … In some ways, if you’ll excuse the expression, it reminds me of time I spent in the past on the hobby of researching family history and hearing, from an expert, that it was …

”The hobby from hell. The better you get at it, the more work you have to do!” 😉

Linked then to another well-known saying (over here anyway) …

”Hobbies cost you money! Businesses make you money!”

With that, on into the rest of my day. With warm wishes for you @delishtreats on your business endeavors and your future success! 👍
