Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of facilitating a workshop called “Love to be Professional” for the Young Women’s Conference at South Cobb High School. I hosted two classes, each with about 15 students and some parents. We talked about branding, first impressions, social media responsibility and other topics that are important when grooming a young professional. I had so much fun with them. The dialog was amazing and they were so attentive. I never in a million years thought that I would enjoy speaking to students, but I absolutely love interacting with them. I think I am effective because I try to be as transparent as possible. I expose my mistakes, but I try to make them see the value in not repeating them. We had open and honest conversation about everything from tattoos to hair color, then we at lunch together in the cafeteria. It was a terrific day!
