There is nothing quite as exciting as seeing a startup company hitting that key acceleration point. That is when all those hopes and dreams and long hours start to look like they will eventually pay off.
I love it when my friends’ companies hit this point. So I was especially delighted to see all the great press on Picateers. What a fabulous concept! Take the old model of school pictures and turn it on its head and turn it into a fundraiser. At a time when schools are scrambling for funds, who wouldn’t love this idea?
But there are lots of great ideas out there. It takes more than a great idea, it takes excellent execution to build loyal customer base and that is just what Picateers is doing.

It seems like more and more people are either feeling like the world is going to end, or they are reaching for their dreams and taking chances on their life goals. In any case, the demand for motivational coaches and mentors seems to be on the rise. The following binder has a couple of articles written on what they are calling ‘Motivational Culture.’

The City of Belmont had their Spring Garden Faire today. It was a nice event, and I especially enjoyed the tour of the award-winning Belmont gardens. The weather was warm and it was a picture perfect day.
Handed out at the event was a list of gardening and going green websites. Too bad they didn’t know about LiveBinders. It would have been a lot easier (and saved paper) to just handout two urls, instead of two pages of urls.
I have put these lists of sites into binders so that they can be more easily shared (and shared in a more environmentally friendly way) via email. Click on the binders below to see these great gardening and going green websites:

It’s that time of year when you are realizing that school is about to end and you haven’t planned out the summer yet. If any of you have kids interested in soccer, this binder has a list of soccer camps put together by a bunch of moms. They’re in the San Francisco bay area and one of them even has a drop-in clinic.
Open the binder by clicking on the link or icon below and click through the tabs to see the different web pages.

Don’t you secretly think that you have this deep, hidden-away talent and that (if given just the right circumstances) you would shine like the brightest star in the universe? Ok, I admit it, I do! I imagine that I start singing and it brings tears to people’s eyes.
Well actually, my singing does bring tears to people’s eyes, because that is what normally happens to people when they are screaming with shear terror. But here are a few people who are the real thing. Click on the binder below, sit back, and enjoy!
I love this stuff, so if you have others that I can add to my binder, please let me know!
