RaderCo - Weekender Snapshot


Just when I thought I was done crying, I got hit with a double-whammy.

My bestie and RaderCo Concierge Lisa, and I had dinner at Mookies New York Deli before my branding specialist, Annie Francheschi, threw me a surprise party to celebrate my TEDx, The Relentless Pursuit of More Cue the ugly cry when she handed me this beautiful print everyone had signed.

Even our waitress, who watched my TEDx during her break, shared her takeaways, sparking more tears and inspiring me to launch a fun 12% off campaign.

And it doesn't stop there. Messages keep rolling in from folks who have watched and shared.

Our podcast for Proven Strategies for a Real Vacation has been a hit and prompted emails like this one from a former client.

I presented to over 2000 accountants about how to Break Free from Busy Work Well Remotely and Inbox Rescue. Ask yourself...are you being responsive or reactive? There's a difference!

I was super honored to be named 2024 Co-Chair and 2025 Chair of the National Speakers Association Certified Speaking Professional Summit.

I also had coffee with one of the most incredible women I've ever met, Ali Ingersoll, whose own TEDx is an unbelievable story. Her experiences have made me more thoughtful about the challenges people with disabilities face, like how she has to pay double to travel because she needs a caregiver with her at all times.

On Friday, I hiked with Deanna Jones, a DEI speaker living her full authentic life.

Sunday was my first time seeing the musical Cabaret, and I loved every bit of it—story, music, and dancing!

When you get this, I'll have just finished a walkie-talkie with Alicia Parr, a fellow business owner and member of the National Small Business Association's leadership council. It's been two weeks of being surrounded by actual Wonder Women!

Weekend plans include Dave Matthews Band tonight and serving on the TEDx panel at NSA Carolinas Annual Banquet.

On with the Weekender!

In my TEDx talk, I discussed the influencers I followed and the misinformation I unintentionally spread. Why It Matters: An interview with one of those influencers coincidentally aired around the same time. Her vulnerability and acknowledgment of her course correction are admirable. Bottom Line: This is the type of person I want to follow.
