Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
I hope your holidays were as fabulous as you are and most importantly you were able to grab some quiet time for reflection and “white space”.
Mine was a hectic one with an unexpected move (a flood), business travel, great family time and all sorts of other wonderful chaos but guess what? As always, the good Lord helped me through it all and had my back big time.
Nonetheless 2016 went out with a bang. I attribute that to the most interesting business lunch of my entire professional life.
WHO IT WAS WITH:
I had lunch with Gretchen Carlson. Yes, you read that right. As part of a recruiting initiative, I flew to New York and had lunch with Gretchen Carlson, the uber talented, former Fox News Anchor who stood up to the infamous Roger Ailes and entire the Fox News machine.
HOW WE MET:
Gretchen and I, both former Minnesotans and fellow authors began a relationship on Twitter about eight months ago. Like most relationships, it grew from there. So on a freezing cold New York day, I flew to New York and we met “in real life” (IRL) for lunch.
Gretchen was humble and gracious without a bitter bone in her body. She is role model, shining light for our daughters, granddaughters, nieces and women everywhere.
