I cannot express in words how much my friends and family mean to me, especially in my ventures to start a non-profit.  But, let me try...

I've been reminded recently that when I'm alone a lot (like when working from home) I totally start doubting myself and what I'm doing.  But when I work on things along with my friends, family, committee, board, etc.  I feel much better about where Overflow is headed.  I don't think it's that I'm overly critical of myself.  Rather, I'm convinced that community is better than isolation - that working together is much more fulfilling that working alone.

So, thank you to all those people working and dreaming alongside me and letting my work and dream alongside them.  Together we are mightier than we are individually.  "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." - Aristotle.

You know what else makes me feel good, comments on my posts.  No one's commented for a long time.  Why not post comment really quick???


  1. I have faith in you, Amanda, and I admire your determination. Go, girl!

  2. Thanks landkwindy! I can't for lunch with you!

  3. Dream together and work together. Amen to that!

  4. Amanda, Carrie from Team World Vision. Haven't met yet, but wanted to say I loved your post and LOVE what Overflow is doing! I relate.. I work from home a LOT for the team. Excited to hopefully work together with you soon... would love to meet up.
