I check my LinkedIn account and notice Jason Grilli had asked if I would connect with him. He saw me on one of the blog groups and asked if I would be interested in collaborating with him on a blog.

Well, I had to Google Jason, not being a sports fan. It turns out he’s a pitcher for the Pittsburg Pirates. He has been playing professionally for 18 years. He lives in Orlando, Florida and Pittsburg during the season. He is married and has a three year little boy that he adores and looks forward to taking care of when he can get a day off.

Jason is looking at doing a platform speaking event based around marketing, Internet marketing, Social Media and blogging.

That’s where I come in.

So we are going to keep in touch and see what we can do about creating an event together.

We talked about what we could do to start looking at a long term plan that will support not only UBU, but Jason’s passion in regards to marketing and entrepreneurship.

It is fascinating to think that someone with Jason’s connections would reach out to me and ask for my collaboration on his concepts. We live in such an amazing time with ways of connecting with people who just a few years ago would be totally out of our reach.



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.
