I heard some of the strangest words from my sister the other day – “You’re a Role Model.” That actually freaked me out. I have many people that I look up to and look to for advice – never have I ever thought that others might do the same to me.
So I decided that it was time to take control! Absolute and total control of my life and business! Everyone has had an opinion of what I am doing right or wrong and I have continually followed advice after advice after advice. Some proving to be great and some proving to be horrible. And why have I followed every piece of advice? Lack of confidence, lack of control and lack of self worth that I have enough business sense to make this happen.
Well, no more!! I am capable of leading my company in the right direction and I have the solid portfolio to prove it. I have also be given many opportunities to work with some amazing companies as well as people. Not to mention some other opportunities I never thought possible.
I was asked if I could do a 45 minute training class at The Center for Women with Vision about graphic design – The good, the bad and the ugly. I am very honored and excited to have this opportunity. I also wrote a speech that I gave at my Toastmaster’s meeting last week about women in business. One of my Toastmaster’s asked me if I would be willing to be a speaker for a highschool class – again very willing and very honored to do so.
So, with three bad weeks in the past, one great week in the present and a fabulous week beginning for the future I can only hope that this is what everyone was talking about. I would be slow coming at first with my busines and then *BAM* busy, busy, busy and nothing but clear skies and opportunity ahead.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
