Marching After All!

The Scrub Princesses have successfully defended their MRR!

We were suppose to defend our MRR at 230 this afternoon. At 12 noon we got a call from one of our mentors telling our defense was moved up to 130! Adrenaline kicked in! We barely slept the night before and we haven't ate anything yet coz we were finishing the final revisions requested by our other mentor. We were running like crazy around the room. I really thought we were going to defend without shower too! I even had to call my mom to ask her to buy sugar-free cakes to help our mentors feel at ease -- okay, so we were bribing them with food!

All we had going for us when we entered the conference room was our passion and enthusiasm for our product. I guess we were contagious coz they were very nice to us and instead of asking too much questions, they were giving suggestions! Free consultation! I have to admit, we had blunders, but it wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. The fact that we were defending when others were already warned that they won't be graduating was a relief for us. And our mentors got excited about our concept which they evolved into whole new level!

As expected, we didn't get a clean pass. We still had minor revisions to do. But the hard part is now over. After the defense my body was crying for some rest. I had a long nap as soon as I got home.

We know we will be millionaires. We know Prof. Morato will invite us to speak to his students about our experience. We know they will make a case about our business.

By they way, I would like to thank all the people that prayed for us today. Thank you to our friends and classmates that supported us. And to my mommy for the cakes!
