Big News! I've decided to sell my store! So if you know anyone who would want to own a thriving dancewear shop, let me know! :-)
It's time for me to move on to the next part of my life. When I bought the store, I never saw myself growing old with it. I have so many other interests, such as programming and math, and I want to have more of that in my life. But I'll still probably be in a job/business where I am helping people directly, because I like doing that and I'm good at it.
Right now I'm looking for a buyer for the store, which could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. I think it's just the matter of talking to the right person at the right time. I'm sure it will all come together perfectly! :-)

Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where
we can find information on it. – Samuel Johnson, 1709-1784, English Author
and Critic

I always liked open-book tests in school (Caltech rocks!) because I felt like it was more like the real world, where it matters less how much you know off the top of your head, and it matters more how much information you can find quickly and figure out how to use that information effectively and efficiently.
"The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what a man or woman is able to do that counts."
~ Booker T. Washington
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

T.S. Eliot

"Good is the enemy of great."
- Jim Collins

Never settle for just being good enough! You don't have to be perfect (no one is!), but you can always be getting better! :-)
"It is not worth an intelligent man's (or woman's!) time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that."
– G. H. Hardy,
1877-1947, English Mathematician

"The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to
venture a little way past them into the impossible."

*Arthur C. Clarke
