Social Enterprise

Job search did not resume as promised. I am too busy dodging and looking for jobs at the same time, if that makes any sense.

Life was getting even more complicated when I started auditing the "Social Enterprise" class at Berkeley. Due to scheduling conflict I had to (sadly) quit my board position in Sasha's preschool in order to make it to the class. The first class was GREAT! So many like-minded people, who wanted to make a difference in this world with their brilliant business ideas. Only problem was, the class was soooo full that people were sitting on the floor. Today an email from the professor pretty much told us last-priority-alumni-hopefuls that we won't be able to audit the class because it is too full. What a bummer!!!!

This is the thing about doing good in this world - there are so many people who want to do it that you might not get on the wagon!! Just yesterday I logged on to Kiva and they have run out of microloan applicants - every single business was funded!! It is UNBELIEVABLE.

Oh well.... If I can't figure out a way to do good, might as well go back to the good old consulting, which I do know my way around (somewhat). Will have several important calls over the next two days. Be back in a few.

Yours truly,
Nancy
