Sunday Best – January 21, 2018 (with news!)

This past week marked a joyful beginning, where many years of professional endeavor came to a new and exciting starting point (click here for the news from Putnam).  At other beginnings, whether first days of school, or moving days, or first dates, or new jobs, I’ve felt the familiar flutters of anticipation, happiness, determination, hopefulness, and […]

Dear Honeybees, today we are happy to offer a little holiday gift to you from the Honeybee team. We’ve been lucky to welcome two new interns to the Honeybee Capital hive this fall (Hooray for Dominique!

  This Sunday’s meditation comes courtesy of the terrific Anne Lamott, author of the above-noted Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers , as well as Small Victories, Bird by Bird, and the upcoming and widely anticipated Hallelujah Anyway.
