I can't say this process has been easy. It's silly of course, but it feels like I've put one of my babies out to be judged in a beauty contest, and the panel is out deliberating whether she'll be judged fit enough to go on! How do beauty contestants handle the pressure !!??
It's also incredibly hard asking for help when previously the world saw Gearhead as a force to be reckoned with. I've learned alot about humility these last few years. I've spent my free time working for causes and raising money for those I felt needed my help, and to admit I'm in this position now has been humbling, but so gratifying. So many people have offered their help, love, support and enthusiasm for my company, and I see now that giving people an opportunity to help is really an act of selflessness. People want to help and support companies and causes they believe in and while pride may sometimes get in the way, stepping back and saying "Thank You for helping me in my time of need" is healing and has restored my faith in the goodness of people.
