Why I'm a staffer, and more

Why I'm a staffer, and more

Shares

Folks, people ask me why I'm permanently committed to my job as  customer service rep at craigslist.

Also asked: why I'm not
interesting in selling the company.

The deal is that my personal mission, my twist on public service, means that I
gotta stay firmly part of the grassroots, the virtual street.

My permanent personal commitment to customer service helps make that happen.

Days ago, I realized that I'm not interested in selling because too much money
tends to sever one's connection to the grassroots.

Money can change you, and I
resist that kind of thing.

(… and please indulge me, here's a really important story on craigslist.)

Thank you for your shining example of what can be achieved when passing on the chance to make a lot of money. Very admirable qualities indeed, and very rare in our society.

I applaud your commitment, Craig. As they say in our tribal language, Kol Hakavod.
Same reason why I choose to help nonprofits market and brand better. It isn't going to make me rich, but it sure is rewarding.
Best!
