It is the 31st and I do hesitate to say aloha to August 2005! I’m hard-pressed to imagine how we could have enjoyed a better anniversary Ho‘olaule‘a than we did this month, outside of wishing that hurricane Katrina had kept her wrath to herself in these past few days, and saying a prayer for the lives she has so drastically affected. I am somewhat cheered by the thought that as human beings we are resilient, tenacious, compassionate and generous with those in need, and intelligent beyond even our own imaginings; I know that in the days and months to come we will pull together to make things right again for our Gulf Coast neighbors. I ask you to consider what you can do, and how you can help.
Mahalo nui to Paul Chaney for pointing out this Hurricane Relief effort on The Truth Laid Bear:

Our Talking Story Recap: An August Anniversary Ho‘olaule‘a
A huge mahalo to Tom Ehrenfeld for being my co-conspirator this month, so that everyone in our Ho‘ohana Community could take away a Ho‘olaule‘a celebration gift; their own entrepreneurial mindset. Tom’s coaching this month, on how we can grow as we grow our business, has been extremely generous, and now we need to practice our mahalo, living in thankfulness for the gift we have been given. It is time to tend your garden.
If you have not yet purchased your own copy of The Startup Garden, what are you waiting for? Every garden needs a gardener, and you are yours. Now that you have your anniversary gift, jump into the pages of Tom’s book and allow it to work its magic for you, just as it did for me.
