An Invitation to Learn More About Great Strides!

This is an invitation I received a few days ago.  I’m sharing it here because I hope that if you live in or near Colorado Springs, you’ll be able to come to join us in supporting the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.  I’ll be there!  I hope you will too! 

“As you may know, Business Linx believes that in order to be successful in business it is important to invest time and money back into our community. One way we have done this is by supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

We are very proud of our relationship with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Not only is it one of the most fiscally responsible organizations out there (nearly ninety cents on every dollar raised goes directly to research and programs for CF), but we have also found that our participation helps make us a better business networking group.  Participation in CF events builds employee camaraderie, brings us potential new business partners and, of course, creates customer goodwill. 

Business Linx would like to invite you to join us for breakfast on Thursday, January 19th  from 8:00-9:00a at Applebee’s (Garden of the Gods/ I25 location) to learn more about cystic fibrosis, the Foundation, and how your involvement can make a difference – for you, your business and people with the disease. 

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Right now there is no cure for cystic fibrosis but with the money we raise we are helping to fund life-saving research that will one day find a cure.  

Please RSVP by Tuesday, January 17th to either myself or Holly Bishop at 303-296-6610 or hbishop@cff.org.  I look forward to seeing you at Applebee’s on Thursday, January 19th!

 Sincerely,

 Chad Mason,  Business Linx Member, 719-332-1053                                                                               

George Cespedes, President,  First Choice Plans, LLC,                Business Linx Founder”

I hope I see you soon!!! 

And, remember, if you can’t come to the meeting, you can join The Goat Cheese Lady Team to help us raise $10,000 at the Great Strides fundraising walk for Cystic Fibrosis by clicking here.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
