MOMENTS RECAP

GO PINK DAY + HALLOWEEN TOWN

Congratulations on two amazing events! Go Pink Day in speakers circle went great! With tons of information given and tasty treats our pop up was a success.

Halloween Town with our LME kiddos was also awesome! Special thank you to Ta'shorey for taking the lead to plan such a fun filled day. Check out the recap on our page tomorrow (Halloween)! 

 MOTIVATION MOMENT 

WITH SARAH JAKES ROBERTS

There are going to be many moments that test us but we are responsible for our reaction. 

How are you challenging yourself to use your setbacks as a push toward your destiny? 

ELITE CONNECT

WHAT'S HAPPENING 

So much has been happening in the world of ELITE! Echi officially launched the Academy which is going amazing! If you're ever in Chicago during a session let ECHI know so you can drop by. 

I also had the opportunity to pitch at Google for funding! The pitch went amazing and we gained so many supporters! 

For EMIZ I'm working on new merch and building our resource database in Columbia. If you're interested in helping with this please text me soon. 

(This is Valencia btw lol)

COFFEE CHAT

3 QUICK QUESTIONS WITH OUR CEO

Top 3 Apps for Productivity 

Google Calendar (scheduling)

Asana (life/project mapping)

UNUM (instagram planning)

 

How do you achieve a balance with classes , work and orgs? 

For me, time is literally money. So I plan my days out hour by hour. Even my lazy moments and movie nights are planned! Proper preparation prevents poor performance. 

Also you have to LOVE what you're involved in, if not you'll get burnt out easily. 

Best skills to have for the real world?

 

COMMUNICATION is the top skill. In everything you do if you can communicate it will save you a lot of trouble. Also the ability to multitask is huge! Get it done by any means necessary.
