It’s only been a month and a half since I last wrote to you all in July’s newsletter, but it feels like it’s been a century ago. A ton has happened since we last talked. I have so much to tell you. For starters, I am no longer in the MBC program at the University of Utah. I know, I know, I couldn’t stop gushing about how excited I was to have been accepted into the program and I am still so grateful to have been given this opportunity. I’ve made some amazing, lasting friends in the program, both in the other founders/students and in my professors/mentors. The reality and bottom line, however, is that I’m not a robot. I require more than a few hours of sleep per night and some down time in order to function and stay healthy. Running my very full time business and also going to school full time just is not humanly possible. I underestimated the rigorousness of the program and I didn’t grasp the delicate balance it is running an entire business by myself. There just isn’t enough time in a day for a two hour round-trip commute, three full days in class, lots of out of class homework, and a tutor to help me with Excel, plus time to bake and run my business. I tried really hard to do both but I very quickly saw the handwriting on the wall and had to pivot and make a decision on what was healthy, smart, and strategic right now for me as I approach my busiest season of the year. I cried and I sulked for a few days before and after I made the decision to leave the program, but then came the relief… it was the right decision. The good news is that all of my professors and fellow students rallied around me with so much love, concern, and understanding. I have never met a group of people so amazing in my life…except for you of course, my baklava family. You rallied just as hard for me when I told you all that I was going to attempt to do this and I thank you for your kindness and support.
