The office: HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH

My oh My! 2024 has gotten off to a fast start and I feel like I'm playing catch-up. The team and I had COVID during January but are feeling much better now and ready to assist you.

If I hadn't told you already, I read this book called One Word that will Change Your Life. I first read it a few years back and have stuck with implementing an annual word each year. This year, my word is SLOW.

According to the dictionary, SLOW means:

  • Moving or operating, or designed to do so, only at a low speed; not quick or fast.

If you know me, you know that I like to move fast. I like to run fast, walk fast, talk fast...I think you get the point. As I age, I realize that I need to slow down and smell the breeze - watch the palms blow in the wind - feel the dust on my skin.

Now, with that being said - you can find me at the following places during Feb:

  • Feb. 9 - 22nd Annual AZ African American Legislative and Leadership Youth Day at the Capitol

  • Feb. 12 - IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!

  • Feb. 14 - LOVE DAY - Make sure to show love to everyone, I know I will

  • Feb. 23 - 49th Annual TS Rotary Charter Night Extravaganza!

  • Feb. 24 - Habitat for Humanity Build - Tempe

  • Feb. 29 - National Sales Network Kickoff

I hope to see you this month, so that I can share the love. How will you show love to others during the month of Feb.?
