my way up.
Sometimes they would be random strangers, friends, and

Seriously, I want to be YOUR “enthusiastic supporter” as you
climb your ladder of strength.
I want to share ideas and encouraging words with you also.
But, I’ll also be brutally honest about your excuses and the ideas
that you’re letting hold you back.
It has been of the GREATEST importance to me, to have men
whom I admire call out my bullshit… and I want to give you
the same gift.
