As a student of Christian Science, I began my design company based on the spiritual fact that God supplies every need of man, and that every aspect of my business would be good and God-directed.

I reasoned that ideas for design, like all good, productive ideas, are God-given; therefore they are always available, with unlimited possibilities. God loves all, so everyone must benefit in business, and I could expect to know the exact design solution for each client. Every problem I might face in my company really only involved proving that inharmony and error are nothing because God is All-in-all. (Each week as I write up a schedule of business activities, the first words I write are "Expect good.")

Once after sending information about my company to a prospective client, I telephoned to make sure it had been received. The marketing director stated defensively that she had been sick for two weeks, needed a secretary, and had so many of her own problems that she had neither the time nor interest to look at my work. After our conversation I realized she actually believed that she was a victim of circumstances. Expressing love for her, I knew that as a child of God she was innocent of ever having said an unkind word. Two days later she telephoned me, polite and professional, saying she had greatly admired my work and would certainly recommend me for future jobs.
