The past three years can best be described by this theme: “Going beyond comfortable and experiencing new heights.”
This occurred in each of three primary areas of my life:
1) As a Mom of 3 kids: I have experienced the joy of watching them grow into unique individual as two are teens and one a pre-teen. They are also all roller-coaster junkies and the past 2 years, we have gone on an amusement park and Major league baseball stadium quest. This has taken us to multiple cities and into Canada where we have experience different cultures and cuisines. Also as port of the amusement park tours, I have pushed beyond my fear of heights to experience a being launched at 120 miles per hour straight up 420 feet. The ride lasts 17 seconds. I also experienced virtual reality while riding a roller coaster this past summer.
2) As a professional speaker and business owner, I came out from behind the curtain a little bit to host my own 1-day event. I have helped run many other people’s events and have spoken at many other events but this was my first solo event. I learned a lot and it was a great experience. I have also expanded my business to greater heights by fully stepping into my strengths as an intuitive and a business consultant. The blend of both talents has been very powerful. It also propelled me to launch my new website www.thrivingentrepreneur.com
3) As a teacher- I teach at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and I love teaching. I broke the mold first by teaching 4 classes in one day and then last year teaching 5 classes back to back. For an MBA program, this is a lot of classes. I found that teaching this many classes has allowed me to impact more students.
The common thread for all of these experiences and what has supported me to go to new heights has been mindset and having what I call a “thriving mindset” which is one that is always moving forward.
