I did the Color Run yay!  It was AWESOME.  You can see some pics here, here and here.  It is amazing to be surrounded by thousands of people doing something fun like running (or in our case power walking).  I also just found out there is a Donut 5K in Chicago this summer so that is definitely going on my list. Walk for donuts?  Absolutely! 🍩  🏃🏾‍♀️
I also did a panel this week which was awesome - it was so great to be there for one of our WiSTEM ladies and share how we were able to use their technology for an event.  It was a little bit nostalgic too as it was an event for exhibitors and people who throw events so I felt a bit transported back to my “working for McCormick Place” days. Also, I received a lot of positive feedback on my speaking and my stage presence at the event.  #winning
In other news, I am getting so much more interest than I expected for the Side Hustle written interview series I’m launching later this summer so that makes me feel even better about this new direction.  I’m super excited to profile side hustlers and hopefully even some who have made the leap to full-time entrepreneurs.  It’s gonna be awesome!  If you want to be featured, hit reply and let me know! 
This weekend is all about #EmpowerHer.  It’s an annual conference put on by Blavity all about women of color.  🙌🏾  We had some opening sessions yesterday which were great and really stressed the importance of self-care along with both physical and mental health.  I’m off to participate in day 2 of this #blackgirlmagic which includes a tw0-hour goal setting session! Wish me luck!
What are your plans for the summer?  Will you be working hard on your biz or taking some time off?  Hit reply and let me know.
On to the picks for the week!
P.S. Taylor Swift is back on Spotify! I can’t tell you how happy this makes me.  I really enjoy her music especially the older songs.
