I am thrilled to introduce the Indie Business Network Summer 2017 interns, my children: Vanessa Johnson and Brooks Johnson. Before I do so, let me first ask your indulgence because you will probably see this post about a million times over the next few days. As you know, I do not beat people over the head with my blog posts, but I hope you'll indulge this mamma just this once. I'm very proud of my children, and over-the-top excited to be in a position to help them learn about entrepreneurship through the Indie Business Network.
Like all parents, I take great pride in my children. Despite my shortcomings as a mother and a human being, they are maturing into amazing people with very distinct and engaging personalities. They are intelligent, smart, forward looking, and personable.
