Ohhh, guys I had such a beautiful meeting. The kind where we all got teary and goosebumpy. The kind where we laughed and clicked and made plans to change the world. Perfect timing, synchronicity, serendipity.This is what happens when you put yourself out there. When you shine so your people can find you. I’m still scared. I’m really scared. But I’m also more and more certain that this is what it feels like on the edge of everything.
