All sorts of good news

So, I’ve been working on my personal “dream business” planning projects for 6 full years. I am obsessed with saving and restoring bees and the food supply chain. (Why do I feel like I’m confessing something?) 🙂 I am an avid networker, and I enjoy meeting people that are on the same frequency as me.
