What do you do if I ask you to sponsor me?
—-Do you know what a sherpa is?
I guess, kind of.

You mean a Himalayan who lives
on the borders of Nepal and Tibet,
renowned for their skill in mountaineering?
—-Yes. I’m like a sherpa.
—-We’re climbing this mountain and I know this trail.
—-I’m not the boss, will not dictate.
—-But I’ll point out issues, rough spots.
—-make suggestions, and I’ll stay as long as you
—-feel like my suggestions are helpful
—-and we can share the trail.
