Just want to give a quick shout-out to our friend, Ruth Bachman, subject of a nice feature by Jeff Strickler in today’s Star Tribune. Ruth serves with Jorg on the board of the University of Minnesota Foundation, and we’ve been helping her spread the word about her efforts to raise $1 million for research at the U’s Masonic Cancer Center as well as its Center for Spirituality and Healing.

Ruth, who lost her left hand to cancer, is donating her fees as an inspriational speaker to these institutions, which helped her in her time of need. She’s developed a fascinating metaphor, the hourglass, to describe her experience. Visit her website and hire her to speak to your company or organization!
