I decided to contact Cathy from San Francisco who had been introduced to me by Doug Hollie of Smart Students, a non profit organization based at Treasure Island. Doug has been helping kids for the past six years.

I hadn’t talked with Cathy for over a month and it was great to catch up. In fact, it seems time timing was perfect. She told me she had just come back from Boston and a marathon. She had just started thinking that she needed to find something else to do.

Go figure! Timing is everything and followup is extremely important. I told Cathy that I had been thinking of her for the past week and it was exactly the call she needed.

A lot of times when I work with people our relationship becomes more than just a working relationship. We develop a strong interest in what is going on in our lives.

So our next step is to establish a plan of action. We’re exploring the auctions at country clubs and speaking to service organizations. I’m looking forward to working with Cathy.

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
