I bonded with the “Coffee Ladies” at the MN Women of Today conference: they pumped me up! Notice my fancy hat?
We answered a desperate call from Katie Castrol, of Minnesota Women of Today – their keynote speaker for the closing of their annual meeting cancelled. I accepted the invitation, because I didn’t want to be a ‘drain.’ Turns out, the 120-something highly caffeinated women leaders pumped me up! It was the perfect way to forget I was tired…and to accelerate the idea that Goodness Pays!
Blending the Seven Fs with Katie
The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow was spending a few hours working alongside my daughter Katie. She attended both the party the night before and accompanied me to the MN Women of Today convention to help me sell books. In my speech, I highlighted our father/daughter time that morning as an excellent example of “Blending the Seven Fs,” we were working on family, finances, friends, fun and future. If “pump” started with an “F” I’d have put that into the mix as well.
Good leaders make a habit of saying “yes” to helping other people even when the timing isn’t convenient. And they find ways to spread goodness even when the pump is running dry.
Please share with me: who did you help yesterday?
