The importance of "Our World Market" book
"OUR WORLD MARKET, The Generational Distinction, Our Connection To Life" was written by my husband, Robert Blazer, shortly after a good friend's unexpected passing. Robert then realized the urgency of sharing this valuable information. It is
his legacy. The book was written in approximately six weeks
with the intention to document what he had discovered.
After many years of working with families from all over the globe,
he discovered a pattern that exists in every family. He saw that fathers and sons were opposite in the way they contribute, and
that mothers and daughters were the same opposites in the way they contribute. The words he uses to describe these differences are "expanding, space creating energy" and "contracting, time creating energy".
We have taken these insights and applied them to our workforce, and have been able to achieve amazing results with people of
all different cultures working together in harmony. Many of our
employees would tell you that this information not only makes their jobs more enjoyable, but that
it has had a profound affect on them and their families. This information has allowed them to understand their children and their spouse in a way in which it was not possible before.
It is Robert's heartfelt desire to share this with all people. I urge you to read it carefully and discuss
it with family members and closest friends so you can see it for yourselves. It is "the difference that makes the difference".

‘Our World Market’ readers share their experiences:
In “Our World Market, The Generational Distinction,” Robert Blazer shares what he has learned from years of experience observing people and behavior and building a successful business heavily dependent on people working together.
The information in this book, when applied to work or personal relationships, can have a profound impact on productivity, relationships with others, understanding of others and self, and general well-being. I found especially interesting the observations and explanations of people as either “expanding” or “contracting”. Like yin and yang, expanding and contracting people are complementary opposites.
As the organizational structure at Your DeKalb Farmers Market demonstrates and as we have seen in our business, pairing expanding and contracting people together in the work place creates a team with balanced energy that capitalizes on the expanding person’s tendency to “think big” and the contracting person’s tendency to get the job done.
Robert also shows how these differences affect family relationships. The book teaches how
to identify these variations in people, how these distinctions affect workplace and family relationships, and how to use this information for personal and professional benefit.
Thank you, Robert!

“Our World Market” is a legacy of the truths that Robert has discovered in business and in life. He shares these discoveries as a gift to those desiring to live and work in harmony and
in peace – absent scarcity and suffering. What better application to these truths, than the diverse and successful Atlanta landmark, Your Dekalb Farmers Market, founded by Robert
The generational and gender maxims presented are profound and seem unchallengeable in explaining human and organizational relationships. Knowledge is freeing, when you see and apply new understanding to improve family and work relationships. His explanation of dual and opposite energy and how generations are distinguished is not only enlightening but fun to see in place within my own family and coworkers.
I have a greater appreciation for my own self and those I know because of “Our World Market”.
