Inspired by Oprah (who isn’t?)

“We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem–even to you–I don’t care: you have to let that out”–Eleni Gabre-Madhin

I’m not gonna lie. I’m at work right now, reading the November 2008 edition ofย “O” magazine. It’s the one with the “What I Know for Sure” article.

The quote above was said by an Ethiopian woman who established the Ethopia Commodity Exchange. (

It amazes me. It literally sends a chill that starts in my throat and spreads up to my brain and down my spine and makes me think this must be God working when I see someone do something this amazing, starting from where she started. She must have been told over and over that she would never be able to do this, but she didn’t stop.

I will be out of the country soon. The resources I need will find me. People come from so much less that I do and they accomplish so much more.
