As you might have heard by now, yesterday was a big day for me and Pace.
The outpouring of support, love, and cheers has been overwhelming in the most positive sense of the word.
A few highlights:
The Magnificent Megan M., one of our dearest friends and biggest cheerleaders, posted an awesome (and fun) podcast about the FR and unschooling and how important what we’re doing here together is to us and the world. It’s long, but it’s rollicking, and I recommend you kick back with a mug of some beverage and give it a listen. Megan is always fun to talk with, and this time was no exception.
E. from GeeksDreamGirl.com, a geek-focused dating-profile-writing site (which I think is a kick-ass service), posted our review on hot dating spots in Austin. She’s a fellow geek, a partner of the Revolution, and a new friend. We’ve been having lots of fun getting to know each other, and writing the post reminded me and Pace of some choice dating spots we haven’t hit in a while. Bonus!
Bob Poole, author of the recently released “Listen First, Sell Later”, gifted us with his own incredible interpretation of our Revolution. Bob is our kind of salesman: kind, generous, smart, funny, amazingly sweet, and genuine. We’re friends, but more than that, I deeply respect him and am honored to have him on our team.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. In only eight hours, we had over thirty people apply to join the Revolution. We had a few phone calls. We had a slew of emails. We had countless tweets, including several that were so sweet we cried. Dearest friends and brand-new friends and soon-to-be friends, all reaching out and connecting.
And the applications! They’re so full of awesome, we barely know what to do with ourselves! We’re so touched and so honored that so many incredible, awesome, intelligent, and thoughtful people are flocking to join us.
You guys are showing us that this is the right path. All the fear, all the tears, all the hard work… Worth every second.
This is the heart of the Freak Revolution. Together, we’re strong. Together, we really can – and will, I have no doubt – change the world. This is only the beginning.
