Deeper Perception Made Practical

Money Happy Contest Starts Today

Money Happy Contest — enter today to learn more about success

Money Happy Contest, can you guess what that’s for? I’m thinking, a new contest here at the blog with three prizes. Not cash prizes, sorry.

Prizes will be aura readings of public figures you’re curious about. How complicated is that celebrity’s relationship to money? And what kind of complicated, emotionally and spiritually? Learning about that, in turn, can contribute to your own success. (You’ll see.)

Specifically, each prize will feature a Money Happy Profile.

What’s That? What’s a Money Happy Profile

Think of it as a very specific type of aura reading. Most important, I’ll be researching parts of that person’s aura called chakra databanks.

In each Money Happy Profile, I’ll report on those chakra databanks most strongly related to making money. And these readings may help you think twice, think twice about…

  • Assuming anything about how a person relates to making money.
  • Gaining more compassion for one of the most complicated aspects of living on earth. For everyone.
  • Bringing you a new spiritual perspective about making money. Perspective that couldn’t be more different than the hollow-promises, tragedy-inducing Law of Attraction.
  • Perspective from Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES), that combines the RES Enlightenment Coaching Skills + the RES Energy READING Skills  + the RES Energy HEALING Skills. 

How to Enter this Money Happy Contest

Enter as often as you like. Please use a separate comment box for each contest nominee. To be considered a contest entry, your comment needs to include all the following:

  1. Choose a public figure you’re curious about, moneywise.
  2. Supply the name of your nominee.
  3. Please supply a photo link to your nominee, a one-click type link. Please choose a photo clearly showing that person’s face from the front. Also, it would be great if that photo included much or all of that person’s torso, also from the front.
  4. Choose a photo from the time in that celebrity’s life you’re curious about. (That’s how energetic literacy works. It’s about the person at the time you’re together. Or if reading a photo, you’ll learn about the person at the time of the photograph.)
  5. Describe what that person is famous for, because not all of us may know that famous person as well as you do.
  6. Summarize why you’re curious about this person.

Contest closes July 1, 2017.

Gaining Wealth as a Life Sport

For background, let me tell you a bit about the idea of gaining wealth as a life sport. Lately, that’s how I’ve been thinking about the success-related aspect of RES.

Helping people make money has obvious benefits, the financial benefits.

But skills for making money can also help us to succeed as householders (people in the world). Helping us to progress spiritually.

That’s why, as an Enlightenment Coach, I’ve published a book about how to make more money. Debunking Law of Attraction practices. Based on loads of aura reading research. Then offering RES skills that work far better.

Also I’ve reconfigured the money-related skills of RES into a new workshop, “Gaining Wealth as a Life Sport.” (It’s my final live workshop in 2017, coming up in August, and you can read about it here.)

Once again, aura reading to the rescue! Once you develop Stage Three Energetic Literacy (or more) — which you can! I’d love to teach you!

Anyway, once you develop that literacy, you can apply it to so many aspects of success. For a big overview of that, you might enjoy scrolling through my book catalog for 2016. It shows all four specialties within RES. And guess which book is last but not least….

    Rose Rosetree says:

    Not a contest entry but a “Walk Your Talk Department” item of possible interest.

    Originally, I started this contest by calling my contest “Moneylicious.” Meaning “Deliciousness related to making money.”

    Far as I was concerned, “Moneylicious” was a brand new name I just made up.

    Rose Rosetree says:

    Demonstrating respect towards the intellectual property of others,I googled the word. Well, well, well, 12,000 hits.

    Nothing on the first page of hits showed a trademark, though.

    Just to make sure, I checked with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Indeed, somebody has trademarked that word.

  3. 3
    Rose Rosetree says:

    So, hello! I found a different phrase, checked that out in the same manner. “Money Happy” is clean and clear. Does that kind of ethical and legal choice make sense to you?

    Surely there are enough new words to go around.

    An Avid Reader says:

    I really like the phrase “money happy”!

    Grace T says:

    Thanks for another contest! I would like to nominate Elon Musk – entrepreneur, inventor, billionaire and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX.

    I am interested in him because his accomplishments seem superhuman and he’s got some visionary goals for humanity. I think I read that he’s the 80th richest person in the world, so it would certainly be interesting to learn about his Money Happy profile!

    I think this photo is from 2017:

    Contest Happy says:

    Hi Rose-contests are fun and make me happy-even if i’m not “money happy” now.

    My nomination is Shah Rukh Khan- the “King of Bollywood”. He is a top (and handsome) celebrity of India who has a net worth of $600 Million.

    This makes him one of the richest actors in India. He grew up middle-class but with lots of talent that has helped him be a success.

    Contest Happy says:

    On a recent Ted Talk he said “”By the time I was 40, I was really flying.

    “I had done 50 films by then and 200 songs and I had been knighted by the Malaysians and given the highest civilian honour by the French government.

    “Humanity was soaring with me. We were both flying off the handle actually.”

    Contest Happy says:

    Will this boldness show up in a Money Happy Profile?

    Zofia says:

    Hmm, this does seem very individualistic, though… sorry to be annoying.

    I’ve always seen a healthy society (including financial health) as being everyone’s responsibility.

  10. 10
    Zofia says:

    The usual stuff: entrepeneurs benefit from a stable state, a pool of educated workers and infrastructure… Startups need government support and so on.

  11. 11
    Zofia says:

    I totally believe in karma. (Like I’ve got a career karma that’s pushing me places I don’t even understand yet… ). But everything I do is dependent on a bunch of other stuff… free will of all around you. And its all so fragile really.

    The real achievement is to be a point of stability.

  12. 12
    Zofia says:

    So that’s me fishing for thoughts. But this is my nomination:

    Jenna Marbles. Youtuber. She posts YouTube videos and does social media things for a living. Around my age.

  13. 13
    Zofia says:

    Now, the reason I’m interested is that, like a few big YouTubers, she kind of fell into success. You can see her grow into it. A good number of the big YouTubers in the YouTube boom burnt out or got themselves into trouble. She’s still consistently successful.

  14. 14
    Rose Rosetree says:

    All these entries are just fascinating. Thanks so much to your firsties.

    Now inviting you nexties. 🙂

    Lo says:

    I hear you Zofia. I remember a friend in high school telling me that it wasn’t possible for everyone in the world to be rich (let alone super rich like the top richest people in the world today) because they needed people to pay very little to to do jobs they didn’t want to or couldn’t do.

    I think I get the karma thing too. I guess it’s difficult for me to think about the super wealthy without thinking of inequality.

    I see too that governments can regulate how fair things are for everyone and give them more financial security or less. I definitely plan on setting an intention around ideas around making money in an upcoming RES session because I’ve got a lot of issues there.

  16. 16
    Lo says:

    I wonder if everyone in the world’s STUFF around money was healed what would the world look like?

    Lo says:

    I guess it’s all a part of learning of learning on Earth.

    Lo says:

    It was a revelation for me to find out that billionaires could be enlightened! (Sorry that none of these comments are contest entries)

  19. 19
    Zofia says:

    Hmm, the two things aren’t mutually exclusive. Social responsibility is important. Wealth is never created in a vacuum. But within that there is individual karma.

  20. 20
    Zofia says:

    Also, being wealthy doesn’t mean you’re super evolved, right?

    We can’t all be wealthy if the business model is exploitation, but we could all be wealthy if the business model is based on mutual respect.

  21. 21
    Zofia says:

    Like in Rose’s Money book, there are enlightened wealthy people, who contribute massively to our society and then the not so enlightened folk…

  22. 22
    Zofia says:

    Anyway, excuse the comments. I find this stuff really fascinating. With work, as with everything, I have found context is key.

    You can’t beat yourself up about things you can’t control, like house prices (:-p) but there are always individual actions you can do.

  23. 23
    Zofia says:

    (We can reference back to AJ’s blog post here. 🙂 about how he handled a difficult financial situation.)

    Zofia says:

    Thus ends this weekend’s essay… sorry. It’ll be interesting to read the aura reading.

    Jessica Gates says:

    I second Grace T’s nomination of Elon Musk for all the reasons she named, plus my son is very interested in his work.

  26. 26
    Lo says:

    I’m curious about financial expert Suze Orman.
    There is a recent picture of her at the bottom of this page

    I really like how she makes the sometimes not so straightforward world of finance understandable and clear. I also like her combination compassion, intelligence, firmness and extreme practicality.

  27. 27
    Lo says:

    Hoping she’s not in spiritual addiction.

    Gillian says:

    I’d like to nominate Jeffrey Archer.

    There is a photo of him here in 1981 (you have to scroll down a bit):

    Jeffrey Archer is a fascinating and controversial public figure in the UK. He started out as a Member of Parliament in the 70s, but did not seek re-election because of a financial scandal that left him bankrupt. He started writing novels in order to make money.

  29. 29
    Gillian says:

    That was followed by a re-entry into political life, then more scandals, libel cases etc, followed by imprisonment!

  30. 30
    Gillian says:

    He’s now a free man again but has made huge amounts of money from his books.

    What interests me about him is his ability to re-invent himself.

    It always fascinates me to hear about someone who bounces back from bankruptcy by pursuing a completely new tack in their career and succeeding at it.

    As a side note, looking at the most recent photographs of him, I was immediately struck by how very similar he looks to my dad!!

  31. 31
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Wow, GILLIAN! Especially that final sentence!

    Blimey! (Does anybody in England even say that any more?)

  32. 32
    Gillian says:

    I say it.

    Sometimes 🙂

  33. 33
    Bernie says:

    I’m more of a ‘crikey’ man!

    But moving on… I’d like to nominate Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition party here in the UK. Corbyn is very much a ‘leftie’ (ie. socialist) in his politics and appears more principled than many politicians!

    He advocates increasing taxes on the rich to help the less wealthy. His party’s just released election manifesto sets out plans for much increased borrowing for investment, which worries some people and excites others!

  34. 34
    Bernie says:

    I wonder how good his instincts really are when it comes to money.

    I wonder if his outlook is rooted too much in ideology and not enough in reality, if it would more likely crash the British economy than actually bring about a fairer society.

    Here’s the most recent pic I can find:

  35. 35
    Lilian says:

    I would like to remove my nomination and second Bernies. For exactly the reasons he gave. Good call dude.

  36. 36
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Oh, you Dears. You may nominate as often as you like for this contest.

    Thanks to all who have entered so far. These three prizes are going to be highly educational for us all — just like any aura readings related to money, actually!

  37. 37
    Gillian says:

    Great nomination, Bernie! I third that 🙂

  38. 38
    Gillian says:

    At the risk of hijacking this thread with British politics, Bernie’s nomination reminded me that I’ve been hoping for the opportunity to have Nicola Sturgeon’s aura read for a long while.

    So please accept my second contest entry.

    Here is a picture of Nicola Sturgeon from earlier this year:

  39. 39
    Gillian says:

    For those who don’t know, Nicola Sturgeon is the leader of the Scottish National Party, who swept the board in Scotland in the 2015 elections and wiped the Labour Party off the map.

  40. 40
    Gillian says:

    The SNP have one over-arching objective, which is pretty obvious from the name (!) – independence from the rest of the UK.

    Nicola Sturgeon is equally admired and loathed.

  41. 41
    Gillian says:

    Personally, I lean towards admiring her. She seems like a strong leader who has ordinary people’s best interests at heart (though that may be a matter of the words she chooses, of course).

  42. 42
    Gillian says:

    Similar to Bernie’s nomination of Jeremy Corbyn, I would like to learn whether she really has the financial integrity and power to lead Scotland, or whether she is on something of an ego trip.

    Here’s hoping an aura reading will help voters to decide :-).

    Thank you, Rose!

  43. 43
    Lilian says:

    Thanks Gillian. Having lived in deepest Glasgow for many years, I second that too.

  44. 44
    Morgan says:

    I would like to nominate Kevin Trudeau. He has been accused of being a fraudster (convicted with larceny) with his books exposing medical and financial corruption in US system and has been put in jail for it.

    I suspect he is targeted by US business/government because he talks so freely of his persecution…as he explains in his books. I’m thankful for his work regardless if he was motivated only for wealth.

  45. 45
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Thanks to all who have been nominating away!

    MORGAN, in order for your contest entry to be considered, it must be complete.

    Please reread the ENTRY instructions in this post. They include sending a one-click photo link, right?

  46. 46
    Rose Rosetree says:

    BERNIE, GILLIAN, and LILIAN — or other Blog-Buddies — when do these elections take place?

  47. 47
    Gillian says:

    We have a general election coming up on June 8th.

  48. 48
    Rose Rosetree says:

    GILLIAN, good to know. Then I’ll do some aura readings that won’t be counted as part of this contest, which accepts nominations through July 1,2017.

  49. 49
    Gillian says:

    Thanks, Rose! That’s terrific :-).

  50. 50
    Bernie says:

    A big thank you from me too. 🙂

  51. 51
    Gillian says:

    If we can really enter this contest as often as we like….I have another few candidates I’d like to include. You’ll have to tell me if I propose too many! This topic is very interesting to me :-).

    The first is Dick Bolles, author of the well-known ‘Parachute’ careers guide. I submitted him to your Enlightenment life list but he’s not enlightened (I should say ‘was,’ as he died earlier this year).

    There’s a photo of him here:

    I’m curious about him because the Parachute system he developed was very attractive to me for a long time (though it never worked for me, lol!). But very briefly, Bolles believed that when people identify their natural talents and match them with smart job seeking, they can land up in positions that really use their inherent skills. He referred to it as one’s ‘calling.’

    What I’d like to know is how rooted in reality he was personally. The template he designed was a beautiful but very idealistic way of approaching money and career.

    Thing is, it didn’t work for me (and probably not for lots of others, either), but Bolles himself did very well out of it, selling millions of copies of his book!

    I don’t mean to suggest that he was some kind of rip-off merchant, I’m sure he believed sincerely in what he was offering; but it would be interesting to find out whether he had a toughness and reality when it came to making money that wasn’t obvious from the ideas presented in his book.

  52. 52
    Gillian says:

    And now I’d like to propose someone who might be something of an opposite: John ODonohue, the late Irish poet and author.

    There’s a photo of him here:

    John ODonohue IS on your enlightenment life list.

    To summarise, John ODonohue started out as a priest (a very brainy one), but became disillusioned with the Church and ended up leaving the priesthood and writing books.

    The book that catapulted him into the limelight was ‘Anam Cara,’ which was described as a very lyrical, poetic and beautiful book about the soul.

    What interests me about John ODonohue is that he clearly didn’t set out on this path to make money. The huge popularity of the book was a great surprise to him. But, I figure, since he was enlightened, his money databanks must have been in pretty good shape!

    And just to be clear: he was no New Age flake. Although he wrote a lot about the soul and was clearly a very spiritual person, he had no time for New Age stuff, describing it as ‘warm ice cream without a spine anywhere!’

    So it’s interesting that he was a very spiritual man, without being flaky, who made a lot of money without really intending to. And that’s why I think he would be interesting to research.

  53. 53
    Gillian says:

    I was also going to propose Sister Wendy Beckett (also on your enlightenment list), but, thinking about it, the reasons why I’m interested in her are just about exactly the same as why I’m interested in John ODonohue.

    She was also a very spiritual person with her feet on the ground who made money as an unintended side effect!

    Anyway, consider this just a musing rather than a contest entry!!

  54. 54
    Gillian says:

    I may have some more candidates in due course.

    Tell me if it’s too much! I’m really into this 🙂

  55. 55
    Rose Rosetree says:

    GILLIAN, everyone is invited to nominate as often as you wish.

    In the future, many of you may gain full Stage Three Energetic Literacy (such as graduates of my “Aura Reading from Photos Workshop” this August). Then you can go back over these contest links, researching for your own fun or else writing guest posts!

  56. 56
    Merritt Graham says:

    I’d like to nominate Mark Cuban, billionaire, I admire him, super smart, and his name was bandied about as a vice presidential candidate for Hilary Clinton. As if anyone is unfamiliar.

  57. 57
  58. 58
    Rose Rosetree says:

    No worries, MORGAN. Thanks to you for your entry too, MERRIT GRAHAM.

    Is it possible? These contest entries are your first interactions here at the blog?

    Either way, please keep it up. 🙂

  59. 59
    Lilian says:

    Gillian, I m liking your nominations and reasons given. I always like food for thought. It seems there can be lots of karma related to this.

  60. 60
    Lilian says:

    OK, just for fun: Mark Vandelli. I mentioned karma before and people have mentioned the theme of falling into success.

    Why not suggest someone born into wealth? Made famous by reality TV. Known for his style and wit… and sense of humour.

  61. 61
  62. 62
    Gillian says:

    Another nomination from me, a more obvious ‘money’ related one now:

    Roger James Hamilton. Here is a picture of him:

  63. 63
    Gillian says:

    He is the founder of several programmes with names like ‘Wealth Dynamics,’ and ‘Genius U.’

    As far as I understand it, he basically is in the business of supporting and mentoring entrepreneurs, and his particular slant on this is to help people identify what particular type of ‘genius’ they are in order to help them run their businesses in a way that works for them.

  64. 64
    Gillian says:

    I know someone personally who follows him avidly and uses his system, and I’m curious to know about his integrity

    (confession: I am sceptical about this type of ‘wealth creation’ programme. I think this kind of thing works very well indeed for the founders, but not so well for the people who sign their money away to learn. But hey. I could be completely wrong).

  65. 65
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Another fascinating nomination, GILLIAN.

    I’m appalled whenever I hear the word “genius” devalued. Einstein. Leonardo da Vinci. They had genius. Many a generation on earth doesn’t produce even one true genius.

    Whereas, supposedly, this guy finds genius in “every client who signs away money to learn?” Guarantees that genius will be found?

  66. 66
    Rose Rosetree says:

    For years I often watched the reality show “Chopped.” Then I stopped watching almost completely.

    What turned me off? It was sad, watching the slide into alcoholism of one of the judges. (Seemed to me.)

    But the straw that broke the camel’s back? How judges began applying the word “Genius” to a contestant’s way of handling a piece of lettuce.

  67. 67
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Following up a bit, here’s a quote from Wikipedia:

    “In Roman religion, the genius… is the individual instance of a general divine nature that is present in every individual person, place, or thing.Much like a guardian angel, the genius would follow each man from the hour of his birth until the day he died.”

  68. 68
    Rose Rosetree says:

    That’s a far cry from randomly calling people “a genius.” Trivializing a term that means something significant.

    Again, quoting from Wikipedia, but elsewhere: “A genius is a person who displays exceptional intellectual ability, creative productivity, universality in genres or originality, typically to a degree that is associated with the achievement of new advances in a domain of knowledge.”

  69. 69
    Rose Rosetree says:

    And then, GILLIAN, telling customers “which kind of genius” they are….

    Which would be laughable except that, to me, few things on earth matter more than helping people, honor, and the pursuit of excellence. All of us can strive for that.

    But only God can create someone capable of achieving such excellence as to merit being acknowledged as “A genius.”

  70. 70
    Lilian says:

    Its interesting to consider the different databanks that could contribute to “being a genius.” Intellectual growth is just one of them.

    I note that for Einstein you didn’t have info on this bank but others like “Coordination Between Thought and Action”, “Creative Flow” and so on, which are required to truly capture ideas.

  71. 71
    Lilian says:

    (Rather than let them remain vague abstract concepts in one’s mind… sigh.)

  72. 72
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Yes, LILLIAN, it’s not as though GENIUS shows in an aura like a big gold star.

    A human has gifts and adaptation to being human. This shows in the person’s aura.

    As for what that person achieves, that’s where the genius shows. “The Theory of Relativity” was not inscribed in Einstein’s aura, right?

  73. 73
    Lilian says:

    🙂 And not channelled via weird entities. Like the author you did an aura reading for a while ago. :-p

    Genuine, unpredictable, human level achievement.

  74. 74
    Gillian says:

    Great comments, Rose and Lilian!

    And now for my next nomination…. (clearly this topic inspires me!).

    Andrew Carnegie. There are lots of pictures of him as an older man, once he’d made his wealth, but this was the only one I could find of him at the younger age of 33 (scroll down the page a bit):

  75. 75
    Gillian says:

    Probably, Andrew Carnegie doesn’t need much introduction.

    But just to summarise, he was born in 1835 in Scotland and emigrated to the United States. An extremely industrious and enterprising man, Wikipedia states that he was one of the ‘richest people and Americans ever.’

  76. 76
    Gillian says:

    What is so fascinating about him is not simply the amount of wealth he accumulated, but his philanthropy and strong opinions about the need to give back to society.

    I was just watching a TV programme about railways in Scotland and his name featured, and one of the presenters said that even today, his generous legacy means that $150 is spent by his foundation every minute on some good cause or other.

  77. 77
    Gillian says:

    Researching this entry, I found a quote from him that goes as follows: “There is little success where there is little laughter.”

    Clearly he was one of history’s ‘extraordinary’ men.

  78. 78
    Gillian says:

    It would be fascinating to find out more about him aurically.

    However, Rose, I appreciate that I may have given you enough contest entries to last for about a year!!!!

    There is something very satisfying about just supplying nominations :-).

  79. 79
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Satisfying about reading them, too, GILLIAN.

    Of course, everyone reading these nominations can develop full Stage Three Energetic Literacy. Including that workshop coming up August 24-25, “Read Auras from Photos.”

    So you’re giving folks wonderful projects for doing their own aura readings. Learning insights about how people relate to money, energetically and subconsciously.

  80. 80
    Rose Rosetree says:

    I might add, an online supplement to “Magnetize Money with Energetic Literacy” contains a number of cool extras that I didn’t manage to squeeze into the book. Plus the book itself is loaded with aura readings about making money.

    BTW, my favorite online supplement article is “Martin Buber’s Brilliant Workaround.”

    Believe Carnegie’s Aura, Not His Gospel of Wealth” begins with this sentence: “I’ve read the aura of Andrew Carnegie and it isn’t pretty.” Although, as you say, he did some wonderful things, Gillian.

  81. 81
    Gillian says:

    Thanks for posting #80, Rose! (That’s a bit like having won the contest :-)).

    It’s really fascinating reading your aura reading of him. I find myself still admiring what he achieved… but not wanting to emulate his qualities…

  82. 82
    Louise says:

    So interesting Rose how Dale Carnegie felt so important (in the room) or world, to look down on most others while I make my self “the most important person in the room” to feel equal to others.

    Which by now I know I mostly know I am.

  83. 83
    Rose Rosetree says:

    LOUISE, you’ve given a fine reminder. We empaths need skills with consciousness to “Become The Most Important Person in the Room.”

    Others don’t have anywhere near that degree of sensitivity. And at the extreme opposite of us, regarding how we are wired in life, are highly, highly INsensitive persons. One of whom — Andrew Carnegie — did some great philanthropic work, whatever the mess going on in his aura. (BTW, you were referring to Andrew, rather than Dale, weren’t you?)

  84. 84
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Regarding your Comment #81, GILLIAN, I agree. Always admiring the good someone accomplishes in reality.

    Aura reading just gives us insight, sometimes wisdom, always perspective. We can keep that close to the heart. It’s a spiritual treasure.

  85. 85
    Louise says:

    Yes, Andrew, OOOps!

  86. 86
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Congratulations to our entire RES community on reaching and surpassing 39,000 comments.

    Thanks, one and all.

  87. 87
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Just two more days to enter, Blog-Buddies. This contest closes tomorrow, July 1.

    What a golden opportunity to get a free aura reading of a public figure who intrigues you. And an aura reading that specializes in exploring how that person deals with money.

    A golden opportunity, indeed!

  88. 88
    Caroline says:

    Can we look at Ryan Eliason of Visonary Business School?

    He is an idealist who also promotes making money. This would be interesting in the walk your talk department – concerning his integrity and also his money making.

    I’d like to nominate Walt Disney, the creator of so many cartoon characters and animated films.

    I’d be fascinated to learn about his relationship with money.

    And how someone with so much imagination was able to successfully navigate the business world.

    Julie says:

    He pioneered his own ideas and was a self-made man.

    He went from standing with his little sister outside the gates of a local amusement park, unable to afford to go in…to creating his
    own amusement park, Disneyland.

    Julie says:

    I’m impressed by the long arc of innovation in his career and how he didn’t rest on past achievements, even after he was very famous.

    He continued to take risks, to bankroll new projects (some that were widely predicted to fail…until they were huge successes).

    I also like that Disney dedicated his life to play and to making childhood better for others, even if he didn’t have a happy childhood himself.

    And to helping adults play, too:)

    That is a wonderful nomination, Julie.

    I know I have nominated several candidates myself, but Walt Disney would be such an interesting person to learn about that I’d like to second this nomination.
