So now that we’ve cycled through Roots and Blues, let’s talk about all the other stuff going on that you mind find interesting:

  1. October is National Women’s Small Business Month. Say that three times fast. At any rate, I have high hopes that when my daughter is a grown adult, no one will assume her husband, her male banker, or her male business consultant is apt to make better decisions than she. And honestly, I think all the women my age will have to pave the way for her before a month of observation does any good. #justsayin

  2. Our show, Making, will begin airing on the PBS affiliate KMOS on October 3rd. I’m sure it will be a delight. Please remember it was really hot and we had the world’s worst air conditioner when it was filmed. #sweaty

  3. We have a lovely two page write up in this current issue of Inside Columbia. PJP Nifong looks just lovely in her first editorial debut. I thought the issue was coming out next month, so imagine my surprise when I flipped through the latest edition while cooking dinner and saw my own store staring back at me. #lowkeyfamous

  4. Last night, I participated in a panel discussion for Prosper U at Central Bank of Boone County called “Owning a Business: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”. Basically my comments boiled down to this: sometimes, entrepreneurship is a dumpster fire. And sometimes it isn’t. #keepitreal

  5. At Roots and Blues, I walked behind the booths in attempt to find some sort of cell reception. And while I was talking on the phone, I noticed a vendor’s box of buns and here is what is said: BAKED ON 08/14/2019 05:11 AM USE BY 05/20/2020. Um. Now I keep thinking about what you add to a bun to make it last NINE MONTHS?!? So you could basically grow a human in your body, or wait to eat one of these buns. #terrifying
