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?


I love reading your responses and love replying! So please leave a comment or send me an email! Have an amazing day!


Wake Up

Have you ever had a work day when your rushing out of your home feeling either nervous or anxious? Maybe you're running late to a meeting, or over slept?

Mornings are the beginning foundation of our day. Will you start off by having a healthy breakfast? Drinking hot water with lemon? Exercise? Meditate? Listen to the news? Maybe stretching is a good idea? Calling a special loved one? ..... So many different norms that all of us do in the morning... so many different rituals.


For a long time I have been thinking about how I would like my days to start. What will make me happy, and ready for the day.


I am a huge morning person... Once I am awake... I am moving around and doing as much as possible. A large factor that I am improving is the amount of sleep I am getting at night... making sure to sleep earlier than 11pm... Difficult, yet extremely worth it.


Values for the MY morning: a good balance of vitamins and protein in my breakfast, getting some sort of exercise (preferably running), and being updated/prepared for work (checking emails, reading news articles, and reviewing notes for class).


Now that I know what I like, I am going to organize my 'perfect' morning with detail...

  • Wake Up
  • Heat up some hot water with lemon
  • Stretch  
  • Go jogging for 45 minutes 
  • Shower
  • Check my emails, news, class notes

      And I am ready to go!


That is just what I particularly enjoy, what about you? 


Obviously, life isn't perfect and sometimes we go off track. It's normal! Try it out though as often as possible. Having that small specialized morning just for yourself can completely impact your day; since you are accomplishing something you value in the morning it can truly impact you effort throughout the day.


Hope you have a wonderful day and make sure to leave your comments below!
