Bittersweet, heart wrenching and finally decided over a glass of Shiraz at our favorite "office" meeting place - El Charro at Ventana restaurant here in Tucson. Since way before the first edition came out in March 2007, Jenny and I labored over the format, design, logo, look, content, direction - the list goes on - for this new baby - Connections for Women. It has been a labor of love, we've given birth each month since to a vibrant, fact-filled, sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, issue of Connectionsforwomen.
We've introduced some wonderful contributors in the ares of relationships, thank you Jim Duzak, Rosie Kuhn and Anne Perry. Home organization - what would we have done without Lorie Marrero and now Helene Segura. And on the home front in Nutrition - Julie Garden-Robinson has been more than a treasure trove of information. We've sweated, leaped, danced and raced up the stairs, pie-pan in hand with the loveliest, most gracious of fitness gurus one could hope to meet - Jenny Anchondo (still rooting for that DVD Jenny!) And we've traveled - even to Libya - we've cooked dinner with friends, we've discussed medical issues common to women, we've dished the dirt on good books. It's been a great journey.
Both Genny and I have moved on - she has , for the past 12 months, been managing a major medical practice putting in 10 plus hours a day on her day job. I've recently become involved in a coffee shop - I've also harbored dreams of really retiring to spend more time at the cabin, traveling, playing with grand kids, garden and dog. To that end we make the following announcement:
All good things come to an end and years in business have taught the founders of Connections For Women that recognizing that time is crucial to growth. Successful entrepreneurs know when it is time to let go of the baby and hand over. So with very mixed feelings bordering on sadness and excitement, we know that it is time for new blood at Connectionsforwomen.com and all of its connecting community sites. To this end we are looking for an individual, individuals, couple, couples, complimentary communities already established or just getting started to take over and infuse the vision of Connections for Women with new energy taking it to the next level.
