I’ve known my friend John since high school, and his wife, Elizabeth, since college. They are my most special friends. We and Maire Anne were all at UMass Amherst together. For those of you who have read my first book or seen one of my presentations, in the photo where there are four people standing in front of “the band bus” (the blue half-size International school bus I maintained for the band I was in), John and Elizabeth are the two standing on the left.

As many of you may already know by following me on social media, I have not spent much of this summer behind the wheel of a race car—which I would prefer to be doing, of course! As a driver who has to find outside funds to do my job, the majority of my “real” job time has been spent behind a computer and telephone, reaching out to potential sponsors and continuing to build my brand.
