Saturday I got to speak at the New Economy: An Entrepreneur Symposium in Tucson. It was the first time this even has been put on and it was raining hard. The Tour de Tucson was going on too. So, sildenafil we weren’t really sure how many people would be attending.
Even with everything going on there was a really good turnout. It’s great to know that people in business or interested in starting their own business will attend an event like this. I wish there had been one when I was starting my business. It was a place to hear business stories of success and learn some lessons from others who have been there and done that without having to make the mistakes yourself.
I was touched to have attendees come up to me after I spoke and tell me that my story resonated with them and that they wanted to connect with me after the event. You never know who you will touch and make a difference to. Although I was nervous about speaking to a room of 300 people, I am so glad that I did. Sometimes, getting out of your comfort zone will help you to grow as a person much more than doing what you already do well.
I guess my thought from this is that it’s important to say yes to opportunities even though they might make you uncomfortable. And, you can do more than you think you can.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
