THE THRILL OF THE LAUNCH

Blog Post created by paula.waggoner Advocate on Feb 26, 2015

I woke up this morning at 6 am staring at the ceiling.  My brain was rewinding the events of the last 12 months...measuring how fast Pink Petro has gone from ideation, to prototype, to well - START-UP!  Yes, I had a huge smile on my face because it makes me happy to see great things happen to wonderful people.  Then I started thinking about that magical LAUNCH moment/period that Pink Petro is about to experience.  Gosh I wish I could be at the Ellevate lunch today with our Pink Petro supporters in Houston.  Instead, I am seconded in my office in San Antonio prepping for an entrepreneurial finance class I teach tomorrow for a local university.

 

So I decided to take a couple of minutes break this morning to dive right into my own FIRST to just day dream about what an amazing launch this is going to be and how I know (based on my own first hand experiences) how incredibly character altering it is for an entrepreneur and their team to move from the LEAP to the LAUNCH!   For those involved, it can feel like your greatest jogging endorphin RUSH X 100.  After you experience it – it just fundamentally changes your DNA.  It changed mine.  I have watched it change many friends and clients over the years.  I know it is going to change Katie Mehnert and this entire PINK PETRO community’s DNA.  Change of the BEST KIND!

 

I encourage you to HAVE A BLAST!  Enjoy the LAUNCH!  This experience will be one you will always remember! 

 

And please share your experience online with the rest of us!
