I wasn't exactly sure where to put this, but this sort of seems like a self question...

I read about you on your About page, and I want to ask you how you got where you are.

How did you get into doing all of these things? Public speaking, starting an alternative Pre-K and Kindergarten, getting published, etc... Everything you've been doing is amazing. How do you do it? I've wanted to do these kind of things when I get older but I don't know how.

I also want to thank you for starting this website and further educating people on sexuality. It's helped me more than you know.

You know, honestly, when I want to do something, I just go on out there and DO it. I have a lot of energy, I'm very driven and motivated in general, and I drink an awful lot of coffee. [Smile]

So, for any of this stuff you want to do? Do some research: read up. Then dig through your paper's want ads or those at Craigslist or some such. Take volunteer jobs or paid jobs that are related to what you want to get into, get started.

As you do that stuff, you'll be able to feel out how much you want to pursue any given thing: for instance, is X something you want to go to school for, make a full-time gig? or is it something you like, but would prefer to do more as a hobby, or as something on the side?

You're weclome, by the way! I really appreciate the thanks. [Smile]
