Hi, again, Dianne,

Thanks for another invitation to invest in growing my business.

Hey if all 10 (& I'm sure that # will grow) report our 5 back, that becomes 50 & ...
Feels like the story of the King's Chessboard.
Will this bury us?

Was reading those Take 5 blogs prior to this & telling myself I should do this.
Sheesh! This ought to get me off PS for a bit.
Do we get to count studying tips on PS?!?
I also have been working daily on practicing the music for this summer's program -- gotta keep my guitar fingers up to the job & learn it all. There's so much more work involved whenever I add music! Still I like stretching myself that way.
O.k. on to 3 more -- if those 2 qualify. Sometimes I feel like a sponge soaking up all I can from fellow storytellers.

I thought the very best place in the world for this inspirational video link is right here.

One immediate benefit... of using this site... it gathers all that activity and serves to show others what they "could" do for themselves and their business... Hurray... Dianne... good idea!
Comment by Dianne de Las Casas, Founder on March 25, 2008 at 1:49am

Just five will keep it manageable for those reading! We all know you do 25 a day, you over-achiever, you!! You always keep me laughing. And yes, I love your blogs!! You're a vet - you don't need a "Take 5" program but there are those who could use the extra push.

Comment by Sean Buvala on March 25, 2008 at 1:07am
Actually, the idea predates this Ning. Come follow along with me at Just five? You mean I can slow down?
