custom valentine made by Michael
There are certain moments when I know I chose the right career path.
A few weeks ago, I had one of them.
I was given the privilege of addressing a jubilant and delightful 5th grade class of gifted students at an elementary school in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The teacher, Mrs. Elvira Deyamport, asked if I would Skype with her students to talk about entrepreneurship.
Little did I realize that we would walk out with a mini business venture! They were brilliant negotiators.

As you will learn from the videos, the venture we cooked up was custom Valentine cards.
They did a lovely job, and I got them in the mail today. Is there any better way to spend Valentine’s Day than reading these sparkly wonders?
Here they are:

You can reach the teacher Elvira Dayamport on Twitter @Elle_Spanish. I would be delighted if you told her how much you appreciate the dedication she has to teaching her kids about the world of business.
I believe she is more powerful than any CEO in any company, anywhere.
Teachers rule the world. Support them!
Thank you sweet, savvy 5th graders. Much love from Auntie Pam.
