Me and my beloved Too Good Triangles aka the bestest dessert in the entire history of ever. My baby. My sweet treasure. My golden egg. My grandma’s delicious recipe and the edible joy of so many amazing friends and customers.
I baked 4 batches for today JUST so that I could pick out the sexiest batch to serve the committee. Yes, desserts can be sexy.
I got a total of 3 hours sleep because I can’t handle my excitement and of course I’m nervous.
And in a few short hours I will have exactly 30 minutes to win them over with me and TGT. This past month of hustling and learning and expanding has been leading me to this. Who am I kidding. The past (almost) 6 years of TGT have paved the way to this moment.
I’ll be presenting in front of 5 suits and when I was worried about what to wear, my advisor said, “You don’t need to dress corporate. Dress for your brand and your brand is fun.” So polka dots it is.
I’m not worried about them loving TGT. My only concern is their requirement that the business being presented is new.
We want them to view its current incarnation as a company that has the foundation, support and the ability to scale.
I’m ready to take TGT to the BIG leagues and I can’t do that alone, so if you’re going to cross any fingers or toes for me today, cross them with the hopes that this program say a full HECK YES to TGT as a beautiful new company here in Montreal.
4 more hours.
With love and nerves and smiles and butterflies,

P.S. THEY SAID HECK YES!
