I don't know about other entrepeneurs, but I have to be honest: some days I just want to hide under the bed with the cat.

Yesterday I had lunch with Talia Goldfarb, fellow St. Louisan and owner of Myself Belts. A mutual friend got us in touch just as I was starting to develop Makaboo, and I've been able to ping her for input and feedback on how to go about starting your own kids' business these last two years. Her story is both so funny and so inspiring, and her advice is dead-on.I left lunch feeling energized and in-control.

Talia: thanks for reminding me that there are no monsters I need to hide from.

We're going to start carrying Myself Belts this summer.
