I am exhausted yet 100% excited about what my future holds.
I spoke at a middle school (5th - 8th graders - 4 assemblies ) in Northern Wisconsin about leadership and self-awareness and it was a blast! Not only did I get thoughtful questions and laughter at appropriate moments during my presentations - I got the full attention of each group of kids and total validation for my current path.
As I prepared for this talk- I realized that every aspect of my life was pretty much put in motion between 5th and 8th grade. Today when I looked into their eyes and answered their questions and exchanged stories about those turbulent years- I think I've found my calling.
You see - I'd been open to being a motivational speaker for women, minorities - faith in the workplace, marketing, leadership - WHATEVER- I was open to it all.
Today - I found my calling... middle school kids.
THAT is exhilarating!
