Travel to KC

Good Morning! Last weekend I went on a trip to Kansas City, Missouri for the CEO National Pitch Competition. What an amazing experience, surrounded by entrepreneurial minds and inspiring life stories... made some great relationships and friendships while I was there. During my time there, I got the chance to participate in the Elevator Pitch Competition, and specifically pitch Live Ritually! I received useful information from keynote speakers and experienced business owners, and they have given me lots of feedback. Really looking forward to continuing and growing this brand! 

Last week while having coffee with a friend, we discussed what we envision our work environment in the next few years. What I found interesting from the conversation was the importance of surrounding yourself with people that really engage, and motivate you to be your best. I have spent a lot of my life always pleasing others, which has helped me grow as a person. What I mean by this is that it has made me realize that I need to focus on what makes me happy and step back sometimes from that habit. I love my family and friends and I am always here to support them. Additionally, I need to create a balance of spending time serving others while spending time with Myself. I am confident that I will create a work environment that gives me the ability to travel, make relationships, and keep learning. 


Definition for thought:

Billionaire - changing the lives of billions of people.


Question for reflection:

What do you admire from your parents?

Make Relationships

As a business major, I've constantly been advised to network, network, network... Some of us haven't come to the realization that the definition of "networking" initially means to find a purpose in someone in order to further your business. This simply means, my interpretation, you're making a connection based on their utility to you. 


In our daily lives we are constantly speaking and communicating with others. My perspective is that instead of finding a purpose in a connection, make a relationship and get to know the person. 


Many of us get so carried away by focusing on utility of an object that we forget the beauty of a simple relationship. We were designed to love and interact with eachother.  


Take the time to say Hi, and really get to know someone, who knows if maybe you have something in common or are heading towards the same goals. 


Hope you have a terrific day!
