Oh, what an electrifying two weeks it's been! 🎉
Last week, I had the honor of speaking at the AICPA ENGAGE conference and enlightened minds with Time Power-Ups and Focus Power-Ups. The room was buzzing with energy and how they could create more traction rather than distractions! 🚀
Here's the cherry on top - I got to have a heart-to-heart with the dashing Scott Zarret, the big brain behind CPA Academy. Guess what? Your gal here is CPA Academy's top-rated speaker in Personal Development and Business Management categories! Can we get a "WOWEE!!!"? 🎊 I've had the pleasure of speaking to over 21,000 accounting professionals through CPA Academy, and my heart swells working with their stellar team.
The conference was well-organized, but darling Vegas, you're a bit too glitzy for this gal. I'm not one to gamble, and the Strip, though enchanting, didn't woo me this time around. I preferred my cozy room, where I continued to work (yes, work!) as my preference! 🛌💻
Oh, and let's not forget about Friday! 🎂 I raised a mug of Killer Bee latte to celebrate co-10-year business birthdays with my lovely friend and RaderCo Team Specialist, Wendy Gates Corbett! Cheers to us! 🥂
I then fluttered over to Charlotte for the NSA Carolinas annual banquet. I reconnected with my mastermind partner and all-around dynamo, Justin Jones-Fosu, CSP®. His speech on bringing meaning to our work left me awe-inspired. 🌟
I attended Dr. Willie Jolley's workshop on Saturday, where he spilled the beans on his illustrious speaking career. But let me tell you, the real star was Dee Taylor-Jolley, his fabulous wife. This queen's spirit was contagious – clapping, laughing, and singing. They are a power couple! 🤩💑 I'm eagerly waiting to dive into their book "Make Love, Make Money, Make it Last: 10 Secrets to Shape a Great Marriage".
My whirlwind weeks continued as I flew to Tacoma to sprinkle some wisdom at the Washington State Department of Revenue on "Everyday Energy: Healthy Habits for Every Body." One pro tip I gave to the field staff working out of less-than-ideal spaces is to invest in a portable standing desk to give them options as they work.💃🍏
As you read this, picture me cozied up at home this weekend while my rockstar husband's band Jack the Radio, takes the stage at Heroes Con. 🎸 I'll be drinking coffee, recording a CPE webinar for Learn Formula, taking a walkie-talkie with my dear friend Beth, attending the musical Urinetown, and indulging in some ice cream. 🍦
On with the Weekender!
