One of the most amazing, committed students I’ve ever had the pleasure of teaching just moved mountains for her participation in our 2014-2015 class of superstars in the Business Adventure School.
This gal is based in New Zealand and always showed up LIVE for our group coaching calls (middle of the night her time) in the last program she was in.
I felt in my bones that she would be successful as she’s a “no excuses” kind of gal. (Unfortunately the vast majority of peeps I come across have more excuses than I can stomach! It’s seriously an epidemic.)
Over the moon PUMPED that I get to be her teacher for the next 12 months in BAS. She’s gonna FLY HIGH.
I LOVE TO TEACH.
You may not know this about me, but my first major in college was English; with a minor in Secondary Education. I wanted to be an English teacher … until I went to school with my mom who taught elementary school at that time, then I changed my mind! I ended up majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Business Administration at the great University of Florida (Go Gators!) … and I use my education everyday of my life.
My desire to TEACH is a huge driving force for me and you’ll see me focusing more of my energy there – as well as WRITING! – in 2015 and beyond.
”The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called ‘truth’.” – Dan Rather
Teachers gotta teach
How about you?
Where are YOU focusing your energy in 2015? Although we are capable of A LOT, we do have a finite amount of energy to draw from daily.
Use yours wisely!
Over the holiday break (my kids are off school for 2 weeks!), I will spend time writing my annual CELEBRATIONS and LESSONS learned blog post. (Check out my juicy 2013 edition here.)
I encourage you to take stock of YOUR celebrations and lessons learned, too.
It’s by LOOKING BACK that we can MOVE FORWARD.
