I can remember when I first made the connection between mindfulness and executive presence. At that point, I was fairly new to mindfulness. I went to talk to one of the leaders of the company where I was working. Due to scheduling constraints, we met in her office and not a conference room, which I would have preferred. We were constantly being interrupted by people popping their heads in for “just a quick question”, the phone, personal texts, etc. And she was eating her lunch at her desk while all this was going on. I remember leaving her office, thinking, “I wonder if she even knew what she ate for lunch,” that is how distracted she was. When I left, I did not feel valued or respected; moreover, it felt like the leader did not value her own time.

I just wanted to reach out to Thank you for all of your advice from the Money Power and Media event last May. I have been really proactive with all of your steps and I am starting to see a big difference. Getting involved with the LWE has really helped to get me out from behind the scenes, improve my self-confidence and get myself and company out in the media. I am now on the Board of Directors for the PWC NJ, was recently asked to be on my first panel (see below) and today Vericon was listed in the NJBIZ Top 250 Privately Held Companies in NJ. We are #142 !!! And of course the biggest accomplishment of the year, being a Top 150 2016 finalist for LWE. 2016 has been a huge year for me !
