A Goal Achieved.
Earlier this year, I set a big goal for myself to speak one time per month. I am talking microphone, motivation, and the Jacki Carr version of the SNL character Matt Foley.
And I am so proud to share that as of this December month, I have completed that goal!
A huge shout out to my husband for supporting this endeavor and even taking days off to watch our daughter so I could make this goal come alive and my parents who fly in to hang with Evi as I fly out, be it to Ojai or down the block in Grand Lake. It does take a village and I had fear about how I would make everything work as a working Mother who loves her job and loves her family. And what I have learned, write your goals down and ask for help. Keep writing, keep asking.
As I peer into the future of 2018, I want to highlight some of those speaking gigs this year as this was something I wanted to add to my business offerings, something that absolutely lights me up and to be really honest, something I am really, really great at.
So this is my business brag book, and writing this I feel so on purpose and excited for all that will come next year in sharing the good words...on a microphone and beyond.
