You've all heard of Bev Harris and her Great Work. In case you don't know
of Jim March, this article should give you a few clues:


I was planning to get together again soon with Jim March. Then he told me
that Bev Harris was passing through town (returning from Los Angeles after
some media appearances). So we thought we should meet up for dinner. My
wife Lori and I met up with them and we drove them to a slightly
out-of-the-way Chinese buffet. It seems that Jim March's favorite
restaurants all end with "buiffet."

I've talked with Bev a few times over the last year or so but it was the
first time we met. She's a riot! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.
She is a very sharp energetic lady and a great entertainer. She says she's
passed the "tipping point" and people are coming to her.

On this three-year odyssey that became the OVC, I've met a lot of high
powered people with lofty titles and tremendous resources. I was struck by
the fact that these two people had none of the titles or resources, but they
have really made a difference. They have kicked butt in a major way.

Just goes to show you.
