    Hi Everyone,

    I hope you are having a great summer.  I wanted to invite everyone from the ONE division to an awesome virtual event that we are hosting with our local chamber of commerce.  It is called 1 Million Cups, where we invite local entrepreneurs to discuss their business and any problems they are encountering.  This month, we are hosting an ecopreneur, Sunshine Petrus, who builds tiny homes in Texas with a focus on sustainability.  The entrepreneur normally presents for 15 minutes, followed by around 45 minutes for discussion.  It is fun, interactive, and a great opportunity to meet new people.  Feel free to invite anyone you wish to the event.  You may even invite your students.    

    The event will be on August 25th, at 9 am Abilene, TX time.  Sunshine provided the following description of her business: 

    "Lifespark Homes - We are a small locally owned tiny home & small home builder located in Clyde Texas.  We have integrated our strong integrity, values and work ethic into every home we build.  We believe that providing a high quality, well-built home is only a small part of managing a successful business.  We pride ourselves on the level of service and  satisfaction just as much as building quality homes.

    Simplifying your life for tiny living doesn't have to mean lowering your standards.  With our strategic craftsmanship along with luxury items throughout our homes, your life doesn't have to be so simple."


    Here is the information for the zoom event.
