I enjoy days like today when I go to a breakfast meeting (free breakfast) and a lunch meeting (free lunch) and out for a networking event (free food and beer.) It was a productive day despite being out of the office most of the day. I worked on revising my business plan. Each staff person at our office works on developing a business plan with measurable goals/objectives we hope to achieve within one year. At least one of these objectives has to be professional development. My supervisor challenged me to pretty much get off my ass and push myself--I was reminded that successful PR practitioners have overcome fears of public speaking. In order for me to grow into future leadership positions I need to be able to communicate clearly and effectively and be somewhat persuasive. I feel so energized now that I accepted the fact that I NEED to improve and there are so many ways for me to begin to work on this. Time to do more speeches and presentations!

Since it was a little cooler today, I took this as an opportunity to wear my big ol' grey scarf perhaps one last time before it gets too warm.

A typical face of mine.

Now back to editing a TON of photos for a senior portrait session and the wedding from this past weekend!
