Annie had been raising money for two years to go to the India Centre in Sangam. She sold thousands of boxes of Girl Scout cookies and wrapping paper, led outdoor skills day camps as fundraisers and even won a scholarship from the Girl Scouts of Colorado Council. This council-wide trip to Sangam did not come together as planned. So in February, Annie and I regrouped. By being flexible with a broader vision, we pivoted and took action to go to Europe. We're glad we did! Here was the Attraction Strategy at work. Hold a broad intention and be open to opportunities that are everywhere, while thinking, feeling passionately and taking action to get what you want. By Theresa Szczurek

 
Our economy is based on people. Humans are the buying entities, the connectors, the decision-makers and the trade partners that make our economy work. Without humans, there can be no economy. So when it comes to automation: A person with a toolbox is more valuable than a person without one. A person with a computer is more valuable than a person without one. A person with a robot or a machine is more valuable than a person without one. Automation does not happen simply for the sake of automation. By Tom Frey
