But it might as well have been Martha herself because, C’mon, she works with M.A.R.T.H.A!!!
When I got the convo (on Etsy), I thought it was SPAM. I get a ton of those. But I thought, “Just may be, this is for real.” So I answered her right away. And thank Gawd I did because it was for r.e.a.l.!!
She wants me to come down to NYC, in March, to hold a “How to Green Your Business” workshop for their Dreamers into Doers event.
Whaaaat??? Yup. You heard me. *Pinch me again…please*
This awesome event is held annually at the Omnimedia headquarter in NYC where luckiest of lucky 80 winners – out of 10,000 applicants – get to network, attend workshops on how to manage their businesses, watch the taping of the Martha Stewart show, of course, meet Martha and spend awe-spiring (my new favorite word) two days get coached about their businesses.
Did I mention they only choose 80 business owners out of over 10,000 who apply? What is that in percentage, like less than 1%!
And I am going to hold a workshop for these smart and creative business owners….in front of the room, behind a podium!
Can you believe this? How unbelievable is this opportunity?
Not only am I invited by Martha Stewart’s Omnimedia company but I will be teaching business owners, entrepreneurs, on why and how greening their businesses are important.
I am so honored to be asked but so stoked – yeah I said s.t.o.k.e.d.! – that greening businesses is viewed as being important enough that a workshop was planned to address the issue! Totally awesome!
Yes, I was shaking like a leaf after I hung up the phone. I don’t remember if I said, “HELL, YEAH!” or “Yes, Ms. “so and so”, I’d be honored to …” or just nodded my little head while screaming silently with my tongue hanging out.
Actually, I shook a lot and I think I pee’d a little.
I have to thank my Eco Etsy teammates for being so supportive and enthusiastic for me. And of course, Etsy, for its awesome handmade community. Without my involvement with them, I wouldn’t be telling you this great news today.
