Back to Business & 6 Lessons Learned

If you are on my mailing list (what do you mean you don't subscribe? Clicky click to get yourself on the list now!), you already know that I am in the process of building a business. A new business. Taking EAE in a new direction. I'm excited and scared but I am definitely ready this time. There is nothing standing in my way anymore.
