With the holidays approaching, the time to reflect has come. 2019 has been filled with change, growth and joy. I am grateful for the time spent with family/friends and the opportunity to do meaningful work in a great industry.
Professionally, this year has been filled with great opportunities, one of which was participating in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program. A takeaway from the program was the connections made and relearning some of the fundamentals of business ownership. I also walked away with new friendships and I’m incredibly grateful to have met other business owners who are also creating great opportunities for the teams they lead. I would definitely recommend the program to any entrepreneur looking to grow or expand into new offerings.
Another great opportunity that arose this year, was speaking at panels and conferences. From empowerment to professional development, I am discovering my innate sharing personality, is a great fit for these events. Thank you to everyone who invited me to speak.
Lastly, one of the greatest opportunities of this year was doing meaningful work with the Strategar team. We volunteered at the North Texas Food Bank for North Texas Giving Day, Frisco ISD Career Day and are currently working with the non-profit ROSAesROJO on a health awareness initiative for Latina women. It’s remarkable to see our mission come alive each day and what a group of people can do when they come together for great causes.
As Thanksgiving approaches this week, I’m curious what you’re thankful for and what you’re looking forward as this year and the end of this second decade of the new millennium nears to a close.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
