I am hugely grateful that this week was extremely busy in a way that felt extremely productive, both for myself as a human and business owner, for my business, and I'd like to think, for the world. productive not busyAfter a little bit of conference mania in September, it was really exciting to sink our teeth into some focused, productive work.

We helped an incredibly passionate, dedicated, and visionary man build a proposal for funding that includes our work in strategic organizational growth and revenue planning. Talk about a win-win: I am *thrilled* to work with him and support his vision. If you haven't seen Stephen Ritz live, do so as soon as possible and in the meantime, watch his TED talk.

My outstandingly talented, organized, patient, visionary, practical, and FUN colleague and I spent the morning mapping what we're learning works and doesn't for us. And the financial implications of that. Drum roll please... Looks like we are onto something, and this Inspiring Capital concept fills a major gap in the market. We're honored and energized to do our part filling it.

And, I'm not ashamed to say that I was also busy catching up with an old friend in town from London, attending a benefit with my boyfriend, planning our upcoming trip to Australia, dragging myself to the gym despite the horribly delayed sunrise, and doing my quarterly 3-day juice cleanse.
