Can you believe it’s March already!?!?!?! Where does the time go? Here are some things happening in my life right now that I hope will brighten yours.
It was Monday morning around 10 am. I’m sitting safely in the middle of the room for a sales meeting with about 75 other people I barely know.
We’re in Texas training with our new lending sponsor – Mortgage Financial Services. So this is a bit of a “get to know you” type meeting.
Then it happens. The CEO stops the meeting and asks me to talk about my new book.
No big deal right? Then he tells me he’s blocked out 30 minutes for me to talk about it.
My heart starts racing. I’m sure I’m starting to sweat but hoping no one notices.
I can handle myself in a small group with a little extemporaneous speaking. But 30 minutes in front of a crowd of 75 people I barely know?
This is WAAAAY outside my comfort zone!
Then it happens. My intuition kicks in. I wrote this book, so I can talk about it for 30 minutes. I’ve got this.
30 minutes zoom by.
Then our CEO makes another surprise announcement by giving everyone in the room a copy of my book. I sign autographs. I get pats on the back. And just for a moment, I feel a little bit like Ellen DeGeneres.
Now, you may not know this, but one of my secret goals in life is to deliver a TED talk. And I believe that opportunities like this one which push me outside of my comfort zone will eventually help me get there.
Speaking of getting outside your comfort zone…we’ve really stepped out with a gorgeous new office and launched a complete overhaul of our brand identity!
Our nice and safe reds and blacks are out!
