September Luncheon Speaker

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Thursday, August 30th, 2012 @ 6:53pm

  • A little change in our agenda this month:

    With our new year underway, we wanted to shine a bright spotlight on our amazing group of women that make this club so special.  We will focus on how we can connect with each other, have a great table top discussion and share an educational moment to ensure we all know how to connect and engage in this new year of the WEC.

    We look forward to spending time connecting, laughing and enjoying your company at our next luncheon!


Vivien Godfrey's Olympic Moments

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Thursday, August 30th, 2012 @ 8:13am

  • I have been planning for well over a year to attend the London Olympic Games so it was a dream come true for me to spend 10 days in my home town of London in July and August. We supported both team GB and team USA and went to 9 different events. We watched some sports that we had never seen before including fencing and archery and also some old favorites like swimming and track and field. It was wonderful!

    I have attached some pictures:

    The first one is Tower Bridge with the Olympic Rings which we took on our way down the River Thames to see the dressage at Greenwich

    The second is watching archery at the Lords cricket ground

    The third is a picture of the scoreboard in the athletics stadium after we saw Jessica Ennis win the Women's Heptathlon for team GB

Christy Sjoblom's Family Adventure

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 @ 1:43pm

  • In August, I returned to the summers of my childhood.  My husband, Steve, and boys, Robbie (6) and Johnny (weeks shy of 2), and I drove all the way up to Memphis, Michigan.  My great-grandparents had settled in Memphis as farmers after immigrating from Poland in the early 1900s.  My grandma bought their house and continued to live there until 1990 - when she moved to Ft. Lauderdale.   This house was built in the early 1850s.    We lucked out to be there during Memphis Days - bounce houses, bands and beer tents! 

    We visited Lookout Mountain, went fishing (and ate the fish!),  pantoon boating, hiking, biked Mackinaw Island, visited the Twenty-First Century Financial Group's auxiliary office (M/V Toucan in Muskegon, MI), and attended a wedding in Raleigh on our way home!  Total mileage:   4021!

    Quotes from Alison Levine -

    *You don't have to have absolute clarity to put one foot forward & go forth.
    *Fear is ok. It is a normal human emotion. Complacency will kill you.
    *Forming Relationships & networking is critical to business climbing.
    *For progress, sometimes you have to take a step backwards to get where you want to go.
    *Ask the right questions until you get a yes.
    *People will help you, but it is up to you to foster those relationships.
    *Sometimes no matter how good & prepared you are, bad things will happen.
    *Tragedy will make teams pull together or tear them apart.
    *Take prudent risks. Learn as much as you can from people who have paved the way before you.

    My goals again have been written and will be updated as time proceeds. My visions for the future are in sight.

    Thanks for being part of my world WEC Sistahs! You make a positive difference in the world of those around you.
