It’s my 17th Anniversary and YOU Get the Present!

Happy Anniversary to me! Wait, that doesn’t sound good…but it’s true.

This month I’m celebrating being in business for 17 years!

VickiIn 2001, I decided to leave my hospital learning and development job and took the leap into being an entrepreneur. One consistent thing I’ve done over the years is push myself to do things that are sometimes uncomfortable. With that in mind, I decided a stand-up paddle (SUP) board would be the perfect gift to help me celebrate.

To help you join in the celebration, Here are 17 things I’ve said over the years that have transformed the way I work, play and live.

As you read these, I hope you’ll find some inspiration for creating and sustaining your own #ProfessionalParadise.

1. Yes!

2. I’m sorry.

3. I’m not sure.

10. Thank you for inviting me.

12. I need time to think about it.

13. Unfortunately, I can’t do that.

14. I need to SHIFT this POW to a WOW.

15. I’m SOGR8FL for my life/work/family/etc.

16. Go away. (to the negative voice in my head)
