“I tried to think of something very profound that I could say this morning – you know, an EF Hutton moment. (if you are old enough to remember EF Hutton commercials). Well, guess what, that’s not happening. So, as I sat thinking about what I want to say, I began reflecting. I thought it’s the beginning of a new year. A time for reflecting and a time for projections and planning. I joined Cable in 2010 and over the past 8 years I have had the honor of serving as a table facilitator, a committee member, Committee Chair and served on the Board of Directors. I have formed many friendships, both personal and professional. When my Mom passed, I had Cable friends to stand alongside of me. When I had to make some significant career decisions, again, Cable connections to advise me and just listen to me as I made decisions. I have grown both personally and professionally as a result of not my “membership”, but my “involvement” in Cable. Sometimes being pushed out of my comfort zone, but always encouraged and supported by other Cable members.
There is a book I like – If you want to walk on Water, You have to Get out of the Boat. So, I would like to leave you with this…as you look forward into 2019, I encourage you to “get out of the boat” -take advantage of what Cable has to offer. Join a committee, grab a card on your way out today and make a new connection. Cable has grown exponentially since I joined in 2010. That is very exciting and honestly, sometimes a bit scary when you decide to step out of your box and try something unfamiliar to you, but I promise the decision to get involved will be one of the best decisions you will make. Cable is about moving women forward and you can rest assured that you will have other women walking beside you to support you and to encourage you to be the Best You that you can be. Thank you for allowing me to share with you this morning.”
