Good luck with the fundraising... ReadUp is a truly unique social media platform. It’s opened up an interesting and diverse reading selection that I would never be able to find on my own. And the comments are powerful, smart and funny. No doubt you’ll find your investors.
I love this. My sister gave me a five year diary 5 years ago. There’s only enough room for a few sentences or a single idea or crazy thing that happened that day. There’s no pressure but now that I’ve got four years behind me I love reading what I did the previous four years.
Interesting theory but I think it crosses the line into creepy. I believe in honesty maybe not radical honesty. I like to filter my thoughts thru the 4 gates if speech. Is it the truth? Does it have to be said? Is now the right time? And how do I say it as compassionately as possible? He just blasts thru the first gate and that is totally unfiltered. Blanton should read a book about mindfulness and empathy.?
I love this article. Gabrielle's has the ability to step back and access the situation with honesty and a level head. My book club read her book about five years ago and then went on a 'field trip" to Prune. I was taken back at the size of the restaurant (tiny) the feeling of belonging (it felt like family) the service (understated but attentive) and the food (amazing)! I hope Prune makes it through this pandemic not because Prune is essential but because Prune is authentic. Gabrielle put her heart and soul into her food and treated her employees like family. We need more entrepreneurs like Gabrielle and more restaurants that make dinner out feel special.
"What happened is inexplicably incredible. It’s the greatest gift ever unwrapped. Not the deaths, not the virus, but The Great Pause. It is, in a word, profound. Please don’t recoil from the bright light beaming through the window. I know it hurts your eyes. It hurts mine, too."
I'm going to take this great pause seriously,
what an opportunity we all have. Stay safe so we can see the other side.
