  18. 18. Results I also wanted to tell you that I'm about 90% sure that instead of moving to Chicago June 1st I will instead move back to the CR/IC area! I have to stay the reason is because of the work you and Andy and the gang are all doing there. It's impressive and I've always considered Iowa my home. I know I can run a global business from there, as I do now and have from all over the country, and I'd love to be involved and help as I can. They are exciting time there and I can just feel the energy and momentum. So let me just say it works -- because of you all people like me are coming back!!! :) ~ Young Cedar Rapids Expat
