Crowdfunding is the spirit of Democracy at its finest, putting the power “Be the Change We Wish to See in the World” back in the hands of the people, on a … Continue reading Why I Love Crowdfunding, and Why You Should Too
Happy Summer Solstice Everyone! Summer Solstice is a time of quickening, bursting into action, like the seed that has been germinating underground for months (or longer). I am very excited to share with you that after over a freakin’ year, I am now very clear on the course of my life (for at least the next year).The clarification process is something I entered very deeply- … Continue reading Summer Solstice Brings BIG and Wonderful Changes for Jess!
