Hi Reader,

After two weeks in Staunton, VA, with my new team at the Shenandoah Community Capital Fund, I'm already packing my bags again to attend Dazzle Camp in the mountains of Georgia!

For more than a year, I've led the storytelling charge at Zebras Unite. I've interviewed more than 25 fellow founding members, chapter leads and co-op members - and along the way my ideas about the future of our economy and society have shifted. As I'm winding down my storytelling efforts for Zebras Unite, I had the chance to reflect on everything I've learned over the last 12 months in my personal interview. With myself. It's weird, I know. Check it out!

In camaraderie,
