So I was reading Fortune yesterday (cuz I’m  so new I barely know what I’m doing  an entrepreneur yo’) and I was captivated by the shiny-ness of the magazine.  I rarely read traditional magazines because I know it’s all smoke and mirrors – women don’t look like that and relationships don’t play out like they do in magazines… So why oh why did I momentarily lose my mind and start reading Fortune…?  Dunno – Because I’m human?   Anyway, DANG!  Those folks are business people.  Investor people.

Anyway, it made me laugh.  And I thought about our Meet & Greet..  And I thought – yeah, we’re not going to be unrealistically shiny, but we will have my G’ma’s Scotch-a-roos.  And I was so grateful that we’re doing this.  This REAL business that will make a REAL difference to REAL people.   I don’t know how many other folks get to be as lucky as we do.  I’m feeling the gratitude though.

I can’t wait to be home in a few days.  I can’t wait to see all of you!

(and yes, my Grandma does still have that picture hanging in her living room.  Although I’m pretty sure the dresses have long been gone)
