Day 7: Great organizing tool!

Day 7: Great organizing tool!

mindmapBig thanks to fellow entrepreneur and educator,  Jim Verzino for introducing me to XMind, a great tool for organizing ideas and projects.  Jim and I are using it for our collaborations.  I’m using it for the KUSIKUY launch, and I brought it to a community travel and performance project I am helping out with.  All with great success.  Super intiuaitve and very flexible, I like that the program downloads onto my computer so I don’t have to worry about having a wifi connection.  My XMind is always with me, even when the internet is not (which happens quite a lot here in Vermont and especially in Bolivia!).XMind is free but takes a moment to download, so be patient.  Enjoy!

Day 6: Sampling

Day 6: Sampling

glitten longJust got off the phone with Bolivia.  The knitters are loving our new designs and feel they will be gorgeous.  New features include hand carved tagua buttons from sustainable rainforest nuts, a special button-hole for the thumb, bold men’s and artsy women’s designs.  Inspirations come from ancient Tiahuanacu pottery, purple mountains, Andean skies, rainforests and sun.

Current Challenge: Can we get the new line out in time for Valentine’s Day?

I’ll keep you posted!
