Had another really great time with our friends Café Mulé! Thanks Matty Wompus and #RichardtheMule!

Today, my company, V-Squared Creative, hosted Squirt Gun Art. We filled water guns with paint and let the kids decorate their own little canvas to take home.

I talked to them about creativity and art and business and how those things aren't mutually exclusive. I talked to them about how school is important, but intelligence comes in many forms and isn't always best measured by standardized tests.

And I told them that some things - like ambition, kindness, and life-long learning - will get them as far or farther in life than a straight A report card.

Above all, we had fun. ~Tobe
