Pitch Contest with Natalie Fischer

Every once in a while, a once in a lifetime opportunity will arrive on your doorstep.

It will never be dressed all in white, on the back of a mighty steed, adorned in sparkling jewels or flashing neon lights--- it will present itself modestly, subtly, and usually at the most inconvenient time.

Why that is, I will never know, but the fact of the matter is this: that it arrives. That it chooses you. That it knocks and it says, "Here's a chance! Are you willing to take it?" And it will be up to you to decide if you just stare at it through the peephole until it gives up and goes away, or if you open the door, and see what happens.

As I said, these don't come around very often. And if you saw the title of this post, you'll know (maybe exactly) what this particular opportunity is. But instead of giving you the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the yay-says and the no-ways, I'll give you the knock. Knock, knock, knock. It's up to you to open the door.

Best of luck,
Deserae McGlothen
