Message from the August e-Newsletter…
The other night my husband and I went out for Thai food, and had a lovely dinner on the outdoor deck. The sun was setting on a very productive day, and I had gotten many things crossed off my to-do list. At the completion of the meal, our server brought us fortune cookies. And let me tell you – I love fortune cookies. Yes, they taste good, but I’m also a big believer in fate and subtle (or not so subtle) messages that are dropped in our laps. (Or in this case, show up in our food.) I always take my fortune cookie messages very seriously.
This night was no exception. Perhaps with everything going on right now, I built it up more than usual. With the busiest Fall Tour we’ve ever planned starting in September, and our first baby due next week, I am open to all the wisdom I can get. As I cracked the cookie in half with nervous trepidation, I hoped it would rock my world. And it said…
“About time I got out of that cookie.”
Really? A fortune cookie with a sense of humor? How fitting. And that’s when I knew this is the message I needed most. To relax, to live, to laugh…and to trust in the simple idea that everything is alright in good time.
Because things over here are better than alright…let me bring you up to speed on a few things. First off, in June I trained a team of incredible speakers who will be carrying out all presentations this Fall while I’m on maternity leave. You can meet them all by watching this brand new video on YouTube.
Second, you probably noticed we changed our official name to Fight Back Productions. This came about as customers began asking for educational programs for female employees (Women Fight Back) and for mixed gender audiences at colleges (Students Fight Back). It was time to develop a larger umbrella organization beyond Girls Fight Back that would be the home for all our educational programs. And so it was…
Third, we are currently planning our biggest and busiest Fall Tour to date. Please see the tour stops at right to see if we’re coming to a city near you. If your school, college or business would like to book a stop on the tour, we offer discounts if you book when our speakers are in your area. And if you work for a business that might be interested in becoming a tour sponsor, please contact us for an info packet.
So that’s the scoop! Until next time…I’m sending you simple joys and lots of good fortune.
Strong. Resilient. Spirited. Unified.
