What can I say? I’ve been busy and life is good. I was at a GLBT conference most of last week, making great business connections and learning lots of great stuff. Bonus – I met some pretty incredible people! The GLBT community is a strong target market for me, in honor of my moms who were together for 40 years before one of them passed on. The work I do for GLBT businesses and GLBT advocacy organizations is my way of keeping my moms’ legacy going. They were pioneers in the gay rights movement in the late 60s and early 70s, and I’m so very proud of them.
Now I’m at a retreat in Central Minnesota, connecting with some amazing women business owners and getting a lot accomplished. We have a “quiet room” where we have tables, chairs (very comfortable) and wi-fi. We’re sitting here with our laptops knocking a ton of things off of our task list. But I have to admit, we’re doing a lot of socializing in the very large, well-equipped kitchen. We all brought food with us, and we’re sharing in the cooking/cleanup duties. I’m cooking tonight, so I hope there’s pizza delivery nearby! We also have a massage therapist here with us, so some of us are getting massages also. What fun!
Meanwhile, I’m still focused on my education. When I get back to my office, I’ll have a ton of catch-up to do with my various classes. But that’s ok – it’s all good.
