Dear Lisa and Chris,
I write you as family, because, for me, that’s how it is. I know it was a tough decision to give up your roles in SOBCon08. Don’t think for a second that it changes a thing. Your hands, hearts, and minds are woven through the SOBCon reality that we made from air. No one at SOBCon07 could possibly remember the event without remembering both of you.
But your life, your new business, the future you’re building is a giant dream. It’s worth the journey you’ve set yourselves on. It will be amazing to watch you as you grow your business into your potential. I can’t imagine anything in your way. I sure can see the good things you will do and make.
How could I not have mixed feelings about seeing you leave the team?
I’ll miss your shoulders next to mine. Wonderful folks will help pick up the work, but it will be a long while before I stop looking for the two of you.
But I won’t miss your voice on the phone, because we’ll still take all of the time. . . . and I’ll still see you in Chicago in May!
To SOBCon Founders, Chris and Lisa Cree,
Blessings and Love on your new business,
and the biggest congratulations of my heart.
