  • When invited to speak at the DLE Breakfast Club, I was immediately excited when I learned that we would be meeting virtually at 7AM.  I am a firm believer that early birds get the worms and it was just that.  Everyone was attentive, curious and genuinely cared about my story and advice.  Many of the participants were still on the video call an hour after we finished the formal program just to ask questions and soak up knowledge.  What a wonderful community, experience and initiative to inspire our next generation of thinkers and entrepreneurs of all ages!  Much love and respect to Linda Dulye for curating such a safe, diverse and thoughtful space for the community.
