Is bigger always better? We mean, do mass and volume naturally equate with grandeur? Well, the masses gathered in person and in front of their TV screens to witness Sidney Crosby score the winning goal this past Sunday night in overtime against the USA. This feat marked Canada's first Olympic Gold in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Around that time, masses gathered in another part of the world- all 5,200 of them posing naked on the steps of the Sydney Opera House for photographer Spencer Tunick. And sadly, a third group gathers not to witness a Gold or bare bodies, but to mourn the loss of Marie Osmond's adopted son, Michael Blosil, who took his teenage life last Friday after struggling with depression. Yet, another mass group of volunteers gather in San Diego to search for 17-year old Chelsey King after she went missing after going for a run in a San Diego park. The culmination of these series of events is massively emotional. That's for sure (excluding the naked bodies part).

Take it from us, two mompreneurs, this book and this author will inspire you to do great things.

Let the masses gather at Butterfly as they did to celebrate victory, witness art, search in hope and mourn a tragic loss. Therein lies the answer. Bigger may in fact, be better.
