Don’t Just Think it, Ink It!

Last Christmas my best friend Stephanie gave me a book called “Where Will You Be In 5 Years from today”. It was perfect for me because I am always looking forward and how can i grow at a leader. One of the chapters was about goal setting. How we all will mentally set goals for our self but never truly follow up with them. The book instructed you to write down goals that you want to have happen in 1 year or less.  Here are some things I wrote down


Those are just a few of the things I wrote down and I can honestly say that I can cross some off my list.  I did lose weight! I tired new things like indoor rock climbing and underground cave hiking! I even graduated from Scottsdale Community College with an Associate in Hospitality degree. I didn’t buy an condo yet but I did find an amazing new apartment. Out of all my goals number 5, was a challenge. I didn’t know where to start or how to make this happen.

In April I was contacted my Nancy Neff, the Executive Director, Institutional Advancement and Community Engagement at Scottsdale Community College. She asked if they could do a story featuring  my sister Jordan and I’s experience at SCC and how our education has helped to launch our next chapters in our lives. 

Over the next few months Jordan and I did phone interviews and photo shoots at Scottsdale Community College. For some reason it still never crossed my mind that Jordan and I would be on the cover of the magazine. I thought they were just doing a little article about us. Well the magazine came out and we were BOTH on the cover and a 2 page spread about us!

I still cannot believe I am on a cover of a magazine! I feel so blessed and this only encourages me to continue making goals and crossing them off my list.
