This week, my nomination to become President of the WBN was accepted. I'm pretty excited because I'm eager to help other women in business succeed.

I moved away from Tallahassee in 2000. I haven't been to Prism since I was a student in the mid to late 90s. This made me emotional to see. LOVE this concert and I have since the first time I went when I was 12.

I wrote a post on why it's good to get scared, with some videos from +Chris Cummins  and +Chris Hadfield. Do you push yourself to do things you're scared of?  How do you get better at doing things that scare you?

Now that I've got +Evernote all organized, I'm going through my +IFTTT recipes to see what I can use to be more effective there. Browsing the recipes makes me glad I have a rule about not posting anything online that I wouldn't be okay with going public.
