What’s the good news, ladies? October edition

WTGNL Oct 2017

Fourth quarter is here and open Enrollment is upon us!  Who’s ready?  Can’t ever say our industry is boring, can we?  I’m gearing up to attend the Women in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS) National Conference next week in Minneapolis and excited to meet a bunch of Wonder Women there!  This month, I’m happy to introduce you to three women that I know will be killin’ it in the fourth quarter!  Click HERE to be in awe as you meet Rachel, Michelle and Rachel!



Can I get a “No?!”

Just Say NoWhen I start to get frazzled I hear my mother in my head saying, “If you don’t value your time, no one else will.” As women, I feel that, at times, we suffer from the “Wonder Woman Complex” of being able to do it all, and often times to our detriment. We can be fearful of the societal response of saying “no” and I’m here to tell you it’s OK to do it!

When I served as National President of Women in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS), my predecessor, Angie Shay, programmed us all so that when a decision was to be made that would impact the organization, if it didn’t engage members or generate revenue, then we shouldn’t be doing it. This made decisions very black and white and easy to move initiatives forward.

What’s the good news, Ladies? August Edition

August BlogI can’t believe that the summer is coming to a close! So true what they say: The older you get, the quicker it goes! I know our industry has seemed like a tennis match this summer with the various proposals on health care, so I’m sure you all need a break if you haven’t had one already. I’ve never watched so much C-Span in my life.

Since open enrollment will soon be upon us again, I hope you have all had some R&R time to unplug yourselves and your business. I find it is so important to recharge and come back to work with a fresh mindset! This month, I’m excited to introduce you to three women I admire and have had the pleasure of working with either through associations or my practice. Click here to feel inspired as you meet Brittany, Denise and Susan!

Maybe I can get her into the industry early! This project has been hugely rewarding for me as a way to spread the good news about women in our industry and the incredible things they are doing! This month, you’ll get to meet some great women who were introduced to me by other great women. I’m sure you’ll have fun getting to know Sheryl, Ande and Stacey a little better. I know I did!
