Giving is Social was on the back burner for a couple of months in 2015 because I got married. To say the least, it was a life-changing move. No other endeavor was bigger than that.
I’ve learned that to create an outward impact, you’ll have to be very strong internally. 2015 was all about that - thinking and recalibrating. Now a team of two, my husband Michael and I took time to pray, align our visions, and establish our joint mission. We’re #BetterTogether.
While Giving is Social will still be fronted by me, Michael has been a great added support - emotionally and intellectually. It’s great to have a partner who is also passionate about the community. He works for the corporate responsibility group of the Intercontinental Hotels Group. I’ve been learning a lot from what he does for work. Our minds are #BetterTogether.
A big learning from the past two years - get a team involved! While there were several people who helped enormously, I didn’t focus much on building the core team. This is now Giving is Social’s pursuit. We are building a leadership team that will think, plan and serve together. Sign-up HERE for any of the ‘Leadership Info Sessions’. Hope to see you!
