The B.O.S.S Connect Event

Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers. – Robin S. Sharma

Many times I’m on the receiving end soaking up the information and listening to the inspiring words of individuals I admire. This time, I was asked to share my knowledge and the lesson I’ve learned up to this point in my journey. Wasn’t too nervous, but more so anxious for the opportunity! The B.O.S.S. Connect stands for Building Opportunities, Supporting Survivors. The event brought together professionals and business owners with young men and women who has passions for different aspirations and looking to make them happen. 

There’s SO MANY gems that I’ve received that I want to share them with anyone willing to listen and MSIBForever gave me that opportunity! We don’t see enough of these events occur in our communities. Sometimes people don’t want to share their wealth of knowledge, or whatever the reason; but, the only way we can raise up our communities is by working together and helping each other any way we can.

“Lift while climbing” a phrase I learned while taking Kendo in college and it stays with me to this day.
