Encouraged by Secretariat [Sidebar]

Secretariat (2010)

At a recent shareholders’ meeting, we shared some of our setbacks with our investors and were heartened by their overwhelming support of our efforts. In fact, a few of them even came up after the meeting and encouraged us to trust in our vision and the path that God has given.   One of them also suggested that I watch the movie Secretariat to see the obstacles that the horse’s owner, Ms. Helen "Penny" Chenery Tweedy, had to overcome in order to realize her vision.  What an inspiring movie! The determination, wisdom and class she exhibited were incredible, especially considering the time of inequality towards women.  It was just what I needed at the right time.  I am very thankful that we have great investors behind us, who are also our greatest supporters.
