Disrupting Local Living, Investing, and Cheese

Peering through the window, San Francisco-based Mission Cheese looks like a cool cheese and wine bar, an intimate and hip place for a date or business meeting. Ask a few questions about the Bent River, Marieke Gouda, or Fleur de la Valle cheeses that you ordered as part of your Midwest Cheese Flight, and you soon discover that Mission Cheese loves the cheesemaker just as much as they love the cheeses they sell. Probably more.

What'll It Be?

Tapas Tuesday at Patricia’s house. Prahok Khatiss Noodles at Monica and Kelvin’s? Or stop by Kelly’s for Bean Soup with Pancetta? Hungry yet? Sounds better than that frozen pizza or fast food drive-through you’re thinking about tonight, right?

Leading With Love at Work is the Answer

I did not expect to consider the meaning of love when I attended the Social Venture Network (SVN) Conference. With my sales pitch and freshly printed business cards, I was prepared to impress a couple of hundred new connections. On the first night when Deb Nelson, [then] Executive Director of SVN, said that 15 years ago, love drew her into the SVN community, I realized I might need to rethink my strategy.
