Happy May!

Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s already May. This year is flying by. My daughter loves Peonies, so this month Peonies set the stage for a beautiful laptop background. Feel free to save the image and use it to brighten your computer.

My Biggest Take-Aways From Ignite

I just returned from Ignite, an incredible 3 day event in Park City, Utah. I attended this event with a client to get a little behind the scenes know-how for her upcoming event. That I definitely got, but I also had a ton of ah-ha moments; a few that I want to share. Some are new things, some are reminders of things forgotten, but all have had an impact on my work since I returned.

My Biggest Take-Aways From Ignite

  1. I am forever curious and learning new things. Over the last 10+ years I’ve learned that in everything there are gold nuggets for me. I don’t need to implement 100% of a training or webinar, or think that it’s the only way. This event was no different. The first few days there was a ton of content that I wasn’t familiar with, and honestly, some of it didn’t naturally fall in my comfort zone. I was reminded to look for the bits and pieces of new knowledge that I can implement into my business. I now have new tools to expand myself and my business, and I’m excited about that.
  2. I work at home. It is very easy to get in a rut or let the work and life lines blur together. I was reminded that I need to step away more often and enjoy the company of other people — in person. Spending a few days out from behind my laptop was energizing.
  3. A topic that came back to me day after day was trusting myself. I was reminded that I need to trust myself in all areas of my business and life. Period.
  4. While it was affirmed that I need to get out more, I was also reminded that I’m a social introvert. I loved the energy in the room, but still needed time to myself to decompress.
  5. I was reminded that the space I choose to work in truly affects my work.
  6. I learned that I don’t dislike flying as much as I thought I did, but it can be exhausting. Side note — I am a confirmed East coast girl.
  7. I learned that after busting my butt all day, a hot tub, shower, and bed feel amazing.

I pushed myself way outside my comfort zone to attend this event and I am so, so thankful that I did. Whether it came through gentle reminders or new lessons, I came back to my office knowing that I have everything I need to blow the doors off this business. And I intend to do just that.

Happy March

Happy March! Normally in Maryland we would be freezing, and while I’m feeling the chill this week, we’ve had some weirdly warm winter weather and I already see the daffodils sprouting. And I’m not complaining. It’s been beautiful!

Today, I want to share my new March 2017 desktop background with you. Feel free to save the image and use it to brighten your computer. Just right-click (on PC) and choose save image as. Enjoy!
