The Massachusetts Conference for Women is tomorrow, December 9. That’s the event I had considered exhibiting at, but decided against after realizing it was too short notice to properly represent myself. I’ve registered as an attendee.
I’m excited about being among 5000 women who are equally interested in spending the day hearing speakers like Gloria Steinem and Elizabeth Lesser (co-founder of Omega Institute) and taking other workshops on current issues affecting us.
I look forward to spending time with friends and colleagues along the way as well. I’m stopping in Rhode Island for coffee with a client who will soon be moving to the Southwest. I’m spending the night with a good friend and colleague from the National Speakers Association. I love making the time to incorporate deepening relationships with my non-local friends. One of my highest values is maintaining friendships, so I figure out where I’ll be and plan ahead to include people I know in those locations.
I once heard that ‘time is the currency of caring.’ Making time for important people in my life makes me feel incredibly rich and abundant.
