life continues to remind us of important lessons … even the lessons i think i’ve mastered, modeled and mentored to others. and honestly, sometimes i need the reminding.
having founded, built and ultimately sold two very successful skincare companies – Biomedic and philosophy – i learned (sometimes the hard way) that the only way to grow a company was to crawl-walk-run. start at a slow crawl with a big and bright idea, and then, when nature and results tell us we are evolving, we stand and take our first baby steps. eventually, when we’re strong enough, we can run. only in this way can we succeed.
i am delighted to be in the very beginning of creating Project Miracle to support non-profits in need. and while it’s an exciting new project to us, i am reminded these past few weeks that the old rule is the only one that works for me. today we are crawling. that is what we are able to do.
thank you to life for the lessons, and thank you to all of you who have written to me asking if your organization can be supported by Project Miracle. you have all reminded me Project Miracle must travel the only road i know: crawl-walk-run.
it means the world to us that you both support Project Miracle, and to me, personally, that you continue to teach me and join me on this new journey.
