James jumped at the opportunity to spend a couple of days at Dan Miller’s home, author of the book 48 Days To The Work You Love. He said it was an amazing experience to spend time with nearly 50 other entreprenuers at the Idea-Into-Business Academy. I think he enjoyed the feeling of fitting in. He was among his own! I’ll let him share more about his experience on his blog.
I must admit that I really enjoyed having a few days off from being a wife. James is intensely working on his life and business and I share that with him. I try to support him as best I am able and we are definitely on this journey together as a team. It can be, well. . . exhausting. But, by Sunday evening I was pacing the house looking out the window everytime I saw headlights to see if James was home! I couldn’t wait to see him!
James is very generous towards me and he brought home some fantastic gifts! My favorite is a beautiful beaded necklace made by African women in Rwanda! One of the men sharing this weekend (Dan Miller’s son, Jared) is teaching women of Rwanda how to be in business for themselves. How awesome is that? I have a passion for business (capitalism) and women! These women are able to support their families and feel good about what they do. Check out their site at www.keza.com. Amazing! You can order your own or buy someone a special gift.I am so proud to have a string of my own. It makes me feel connected to women a world away. Instead of making 200 dollars a year these beautiful women are making 200 dollars a month! Jared is involving fashion designers from America to help their products be current. The line is growing to include more pieces and he has landed a spot on QVC!
Here I am showing off my Keza necklace! The beads are handmade out of recycled paper that the women find.
My second favorite gift is a signed copy of Scott Hamilton’s new book, The Great Eight! I’ve always been a Scott Hamilton fan. In 1997 James bought tickets so I could see Scott Hamilton live at Stars on Ice! I witnessed his famous back flip! Awesome memories! I’ve already read the book and he’s amazing and inspiring!
Last but not least, I finally possess my own copy of Mike Huckabee’s book, Do the Right Thing! Governor Huckabee is a hero of mine and I know his book will be a great read.
See my necklace?!
James is an amazing guy. He’s a passionate go-getter and I look forward to our future together. I know James is going to do great things. I am thankful to share my life with my best bud. Despite the ups and downs of life we are truly happy.
Now it’s back to working hard and keeping the vision.
