Everybody has a story. Here’s mine.
My passion for learning is truly something I was born with. Our family standards include fostering curiosity (‘why?’ seems to be the first response in every conversation), engaging connection (we’re big-time community builders), and sharing perspectives (we love to eat, cuss-n-discuss, and tell tall tales). So, even those who didn’t make a career in education taught in their respective ways and industries as mentors and leaders.
I didn’t start out in the classroom.
I spent over a decade in political and nonprofit fundraising and in corporate marketing and public relations. Throughout that time, I learned that folks invest in what they believe — people, priorities, places, and platforms.
People crave connection and purpose.
And, since we’re friends now, I’ll let you in on a *BIG* secret.
There is one and only way to form a connection — doesn’t matter if it’s to people or product.
