Hookers for Jesus and my new business

I know I usually write about my baby boy, but I have to say I found a bit of inspiration while reading the news, and that doesn't happen very often! I guess with the recent upswing in atheism, Jesus is trying out some new marketing strategies, while also poking fun at his followers by showing their weakness for intolerance over acceptance of all their brothers and sisters:

And while we're talking about messages and tactics from above, I've experienced a series of coincidences over the past few days that are making me reconsider the new age books I read in my twenties. (Just in case you didn't read new age books in your twenties, just think of The Power of Now, The Secret and other books of this cosmic universe full of opportunity genre). It seems I am meant to start my own business.

Just to give you an example of the coincidences; This morning I came to work to find a newspaper article on my desk given to me by Tom Spoonerow about new moms who did start ups in areas inspiring to them. Next, my poet friend Chryss Yost sends me an email about the Women's Economic Venture program introductory meeting for their 14 week business training program, which I've been wanting to do for years, and three, the timing all works out for me to actually attend the meeting, at which I became inspired.

So, now I only need to come up with the hefty tuition. And that brings me to Hilary taking New Hampshire. Hillary taught me this evening that anything's possible with the right people supporting you, the ability to observe, listen and incorporate new tactics, and a belief in perserverance. My vote is still up for grabs, and I'm excited about the great democratic game that is afoot.

So my new business, disappointingly to some i'm sure, has nothing to do with hookers and everything to do with sustainability. But of course I can't tell you the details, as that's not sound business practice.

If you read all the way through this blog entry, you get two gold stars for perserverance.

Sounds very, very exciting! 2008 is off to a strong start.

It's good you received some of Hillary's inspiration. Now you just need some of her money :)

No hints or clues about the idea? Such a tease!
