Last week was an exciting week. The Tempe Chamber of Commerce held their annual Women in Business Conference and I was a finalist for their Business Woman of the Year Award.
It was a real honor to be nominated alongside such amazing women as Tracy Bullock, president of Bullock Training & Development, and Dawn Hocking, director of development for The Centers for Habilitation. They both do so much for their community and in their leadership roles within the Tempe Chamber. These women are my friends and colleagues. We’ve worked together on projects and have become close in the process. I rooted for them as much as I did for myself.
In addition to the nomination, I was a participant in the event as a facilitator, presenter, and mentor. I also hosted a booth for Wave Productivity. It was exciting to say the least. The day-of was a flurry of activity, nerves, and fun. And I knew going into it I needed to have strategies in place for getting back to business after the award ceremony was over.
