I definitely practice what I reach! The people that you hang around with influence who you are and what you do, so it’s important to surround yourself with positive, uplifting people who help you to grow and thrive. As a motivational speaker, I make sure to surround myself with other motivational speakers as often as possible. Last Saturday, I attended a fundraising event and the 3 keynote speakers included: Kathryn Childers (Esteemed U.S. Presidential Secret Service Agent – 1 of the first 5 females ever hired), Elizabeth McCormick (Decorated U.S. Army Black Hawk Pilot – one of the first female pilots) and Freda Powell (First African-American City of Amarillo, TX Councilwoman). These women persevered through adversity and have received numerous awards, accolades and have gained national recognition for breaking down barriers for women. I have a question for you. Who do YOU affiliate with?
