When you’re born with the last name like Barefoot, you spend your whole life answering a lot of questions …
… are you first nations?
… what was it like being pregnant?
… does your family own a winery in California?
Of course, I could have changed my name when I got married, but that really would have taken all the fun out of it!
Besides, over time, you really can get used to people bursting out laughing when you introduce yourself!
Last week I got a LinkedIn request from the guy who I had always secretly hoped was my family … Michael Houlihan … the founder of Barefoot Wines!
Although I didn’t know Michael, I certainly knew of his wine. In fact, I have given it out as Christmas gifts to my clients for many years.
Michael and I had an amazing chat that culminated in him sending me a copy of his book. I am in the process of devouring it!
What I can tell you so far is that it’s inspiring, amazing, and entertaining and, even better with a glass of Barefoot wine!
