My husband whisked me away for a weekend in nature to celebrate my birthday. The air was crisp; super fresh and rejuvenating. Something about verdant, rolling hills makes me feel really alive and well. And being in another environment was very conducive to our creativity. Oli was in flow, he was suggesting multiple business ideas, he wanted to learn what I’ve been learning at Escape the City.
Last week, we had a challenge. They called it the email hustle challenge. We had to list out leaders in our industry and reach out to them via email. I started at the top; I always go big. I emailed Richard Branson. At first the email bounced back. Then I screenshotted it and sent him a Tweet. Unsurprisingly, he has not responded.
Of course, I didn’t let this discourage me. My list of leaders was long. Right at the fore, I had Graciela Chichilnisky. I saw Graciela speak at a conference in San Jose in 2015. She is grace and light. She’s intelligence and elegance. Graciela replied, and she agreed to be interviewed for this blog.
The hustle is real! And it’s working.
My MVP is now live. I have launched my first event, and my first tour. You can now sign up to my Slack community, my Facebook group, you can check out the landing page, Instagram and Twitter. It’s happening. The time is now.
