How’s your summer coming? Pretty good, by the looks of it:
- Liz Stiverson has a morbid plan, inspired by one of my morbid plans. (Speaking of which, I’m visiting the Catacombs this morning. Creepy girls, unite.)
- Here’s to Nathalie Robertson, who is celebrating the grand opening of RedFish BlueFish in Toronto! Go Mighty is lousy with entrepreneurs, so we feel an extra tug of happiness when someone makes a big push toward their business goals. Success, profit, and satisfaction for you Nathalie.
- Brittany’s goal to boost the confidence of women continues with the help of Rivet & Sway. And you can join in live on July 18.
- How are your Go Summer resolutions coming along?
-Megan H is learning how to tie knots as part of her goal to sail a boat.
-Kellee Bryan made a plan to take a few months off of paid work, so she gets a chance to spend all summer with her kids.
-And Neil Gaiman made Rebecca Crump’s Summer thunderstorm better than she could have planned.
All those Go Summer folks are entered for a chance to win a ticket to Camp Mighty. If you haven’t made your own Summer Resolutions yet, consider it. Because they are fun. And because Camp Mighty has a poolside lounge chair with your name on it.
July, you’re really coming along.
Most years, my summer goes like this, “It’s Summer! It’s Summer! It’s… Fall.”
Summer looks so easy from the outside, filled with simple pleasures like barbecues, road trips, watermelon on ice. Unfortunately, it’s even easier to put those things off in favor of napping in a cool place. (I love you, napping. Come here, let’s cuddle.)
Much like the holidays, there are things I need to do every Summer or it doesn’t feel like I really got a Summer. And all of us know what I do in these situations. I make a list:
And! If you’d like to make your own list of fun ideas for Summer, Team Mighty is giving away Camp Mighty tickets to members of the Go Mighty community. To be eligible, tag your summer plans and goals, and any stories about your progress, with #gosummer.
We’ll be giving away the first of six tickets next Friday. Hooray! Here’s hoping we get to meet up for a little more summer in Palm Springs this October.
Sara Lando! Get on this, stat.. And then the rest of us will have to do it too.
Sara McNally is making things. So satisfying.
Oh c’mon. One of you has to want these.

-That’s Katie Thorne up there, just hangin’ with her hubby while she checks something off her life list. Like you do.
-I’ve always wanted to go to this.
- And Leslie Fandrich is actually getting started on one of the most common, and most difficult, goals we see on Go Mighty.

In the last two days, we’ve raised $240 of our $1,200 for our ScholarMatch project in partnership with Rivet & Sway. Will you please help us put some kids through college this fall by making a donation? If you can, tell us in comments so we can keep track.
Here’s what the team has done so far:
Kimberly is donating 25 percent from her next two weeks of Nottene sales. Your purchase comes with her hand-drawn sketch of your item. What the rad? Please let her know in comments that you’d like to support ScholarMatch.
Jen is donating 20 percent of sales from Cultivating Me through the end of June, plus matching those proceeds with her own cash. Her stuff is very reasonably priced, so have a look.
Lauren offered 10 percent of her proceeds from The Little Donkey for the next three weeks, so go stock up on baby shower gifts.
Huge thanks to Amber, Jen Bruntlett, Sonia Gustafson, and Kim for their donations. Thanks also to @JennyStockton, who you may remember from her Go Mighty bakesale, for lending her megaphone. And thanks to @cultivatingme, @kellytirman,@miametro, and @jackiewolven for the RTs.
And finally, hooray for our Elaine (comment 243) our Rivet & Sway giveaway winner! Elaine, get your vision checked and then check your email for info on how to claim your Punchline Neopolitans from Rivet & Sway.
Again, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help with this, guys. You are good eggs. Thank you.
