I’m just a MISSISSIPPI girl with a WHOLE lot of TEXAS in me but I still got Mississippi mud on my boots. I’m not yelling i’m a Mississippi girl we just talk loud shirt. Being a founder of a new company is hard — nevertheless; we should be grateful for that. However; there are times we don’t feel grateful. Particularly, not when we’re lying awake at 3 a.m. in a cold sweat, staring at the ceiling wondering how we have created so much debt in such a short period of time. But it is my belief that in those sleepless nights, the awkward conversations at family dinners, the long days without measurable progress and the other thousand things that most people wouldn’t tolerate that makes the solutions we build valuable — and the pursuit worthwhile. We relish the challenge as much as the outcome.

As the holidays quickly approach, many of you probably have some of the same reflections of the past year that I am experiencing. This might be a side-effect of the tryptophan-loaded turkey you just ate. Or, it could be something you subconsciously start doing after you’ve reviewed the financials for Q4. Or, it’s the cold weather keeping me inside. I am a Mississippi girl and don’t like cold weather. Whatever your reason might be — this time of year I find myself more willing to wander down memory lane.
No matter the highs or lows of being a new founder , I am so incredibly grateful that I get to do something that pulls me willingly into the fight every day. Building something that is uniquely and unquestionably yours can be an amazing journey if you stay the course and trust God every step of the way. My journey is extraordinary — and, I am just grateful for that, too. But I’m not yelling i’m a Mississippi girl we just talk loud shirt. Thanking for sharing your love of people and your awesome talent with everyone! Your memory will live on forever.

Today we remember singer Aretha Franklin who died today at the age of 76. The 18-time Grammy Award winner known as the “Queen of Soul” was one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold 75 million records worldwide. Franklin was also the first female performer ever inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and was ranked #1 by Rolling Stone magazine on their list of the “100 Greatest Singers.” One of her most famous songs, “Respect”, was considered an anthem of both the civil rights and women’s rights movements. In discussing the wide appeal of the song, Franklin stated: “We all require and want respect, man or woman, black or white. It’s our basic human right. That’s why people still relate to that song so much.”
