Goodbye, Grandma

Me and Grandma

Grandma, I’m so very sorry you’re gone. But not for you. For me.

You’re now at peace, in the company of Grandpa and your family gone before you.

But now you’re out of my life—at least for now—and I’m left with just the stories you told me and the lessons you taught. Only now, I realize how much those memories have faded over the many years, since I was a child, helping in your garden.

Embarking Once Again on My Entrepreneurial Journey

I’ve been meaning to chronicle my path to entrepreneurship for a long time, but somehow I always seem to get lost along the way. So this time, while I once again find myself in earnest about spinning up a business, I’m going to take the opportunity to start off right. This time will be different. This time I will do the most important things, instead of just planning them. And that includes documenting the journey.
