Leading & Parenting

After 10 years of BMK being run from my home, I’m now traveling for speaking and leadership consulting work- which means time away from the girls and not always being home after school.
The girls are not only supportive of the travel and offsite work that I’m doing, they have learned that the people who I choose to take on as clients or hire me as a speaker, are amazing kind humans who often send me home with goodies for me to share with them.
Big thanks to Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust who gave me a box of their famous cookies after having me speak at their leadership meeting!
I have loved being able to be home with my girls, and creating a truly unique business out of my home- but now that they are older, I can impact and help people and organizations who can’t come here to BMK and I love it.
What made today’s speaking engagement special was the woman who contacted me for it, wrote an article about BMK 10 years ago when it first opened and the president of the bank is also a fan of stoicism which meant for once someone knew the quotes that I have in my presentation!
Even as I do more traveling, I also continue to make BMK better than ever for those who come on-site for workshops, retreats and summer camps and more- so those local to BMK- reach out to schedule your special event now as dates are limited. And if you want me to head your way – never hesitate to reach out!
