@SirPaulTheTrustedAdvisor We were planning to make the meetup today, but not feeling well this morning. Catch you all next month.

I did a scary thing today. I told my leadership and my team that I am leaving my full-time salaried job in order to focus full-time on my business.

Everyone was very supportive and wished me good luck, but I'm still terrified. I've been addicted to a regular paycheck for 30 years. Freedom!

I heard a quote this morning which, paraphrased, was "a bigot is not someone who thinks they are right. Everyone thinks that. A bigot is someone who can't understand how someone else could be so wrong"
