First of all, please understand that I sometimes can/not find the appropriate word/phrase to describe what I am trying to say. With that in mind, read this posting and think of all the INFINITE POSSIBILITIES...
It appears that Vita-mix has, at this point, stopped selling replacement parts for older models of Vita-Mix machines. WELL, WHen life gives us lemons, let's make LEMONADE! LET"S ENVISION SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS(ES) which can faciltate the making and stocking of these parts> AND in the process, grow other businesses and community adventures which nurture and support one another.
The city of Cleveland, Ohio, which is "HOME TO VITA-MIX" would LOVE TO HAVE more Sustainable, Green, Life Affirming businesses. LIKE all cities, Cleveland is looking for ways to grow a new city-living environment. THere is SOMUCH happening which is growing a new world in many ways. Those of you who purchased older models of Vita-mix in all the years past, have been supporting the bigger energies of the world to shift so that MORE AND MORE people around the world can now benefit from this technology. SO, let's envision that there already IS a NEW offshoot or separate business which makes all the older model parts for selling to those who still use older Vita-mixes. In our minds and hearts, let's feel HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO HAVE A STEADY SUPPLY OF REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR THE OLDER VITA-MIX MACHINES. BECAUSE in the years to come, there will always be "newer technology" and such, which will bring out even newer models of Vita-mix, and those of us who use the "Now Newer" machines will be needing our "parts for our older models several years from now. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY FOR utilizing this VITA-Village to co-create 'economic and community development'.
Instead of being upset with Vita-Mix, let's see how there are possibilities to create more jobs, and more businesses, to grow around business which creates and sells the parts for older Vita-mix machines...AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING. CITY GARDENS which grow food for folks living in the city--and CSA's--Community Supported Agriculture. LIKE THE "GROWING POWER" in Chicago and many other urban garden ventures. There can be a bevy of businesses which can be grown to help change the way we eat, and look at life. AND these are just a few ideas. Feel free to Email, call or otherwise contact VITA-MIX to let them know of your desires for these kinds of businesses to grow, which in and of itself is a HUGE PUBLICITY BOON for VIta-Mix. These businesses allow Vita-mix to grow in the field of "RECYCLING AND RE-USING"...
And there are sources for financial and technical assistance which can allow all these wonderful possibilites to their full manifestation.
Blessings to all.
