Lead Weekly May 4th- May 10th 2022

Hello Everyone,

May the 4th be with you!
I just starting reading this book for the “Leading Ladies” 🙂 book club that I am in called “The Magic of Thinking Big”. As I started reading this book, I will be honest. I thought “pleeeeeeease, I already think positively and don’t need this crap”…..well there was my negative thinking that just snuck in there! I’m sure this has happened to all of you before! If you have already read the May Newsletter I sent out, then you will know that May is going to be a busy month. Knowing that it’ll be busy can lead to overwhelming negative thoughts. Just with my Chamber work alone, it can be a lot, but then add that I am running a business with every weekend booked with wedding orders, and then on top of that taking care of my children with my husband gone traveling for work all the time. Just like in that book, I could get what they call “Excuse-itis” but I won’t and I can’t. I have to keep chugging along and keep thinking successful positive thoughts because doing so will benefit myself, clients, and the businesses in Lead! Think positive, have fun, enjoy what you do and you will go places in life!

A very strong successful positive thinking person that puts her mind to something and gets it done and a person I call a very good friend, just recently had her Ordination and became a Pastor for the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church. Congratulations Sierra Ward for this accomplishment!

Hey, I also got the Daktronics Board working again, so you can reach out to me about events that you would like posted on there!
