Cool

The start up funding is happening for the PAC. This is the first step in our direction ahead. Apparently this was a big deal. I got a several random emails in congrats for the award. The Skandalaris Center for Entrepenuerial Studies. According to a friend the room included some really big VIPs in the big business world. I had to go through a class the past few months about applying for funding and creating a sustaining business model. It was really interesting really. I learned a lot. We all learned a lot. We got our board together. We are making marked progress. We have a more firm (firmer?) plan. A more detailed, sustainable and solid model of operation. We had been just doing for so long. Wash U really was amazing.

I had never been so nervous before I did my first presentation. The second liver presentation was somewhat easier. It was a group effort at that point. The pressure for the first one was more than my first wrestling match in high school and much more pressure than my first fight. My hands that held the note cards shook as I did my first verbal pitch about the program about two or so months ago. I haven't had pressure like that in a long time. Funny, for I thought I was getting used to it.

We meet again on Thursday. We got a lot more work to do. We can get this in full motion soon.

Wow, I'd be nervous about a liver presentation too. Did they quiz you on hepatocytes or hemochromatosis? Cause that woulda been hard.
