JackieO’s Paws-itivley Sensational Wisdom

Jackie O and I spend a great deal of time together.

We laugh, we play and go for walks.

I am talking about “my” Jackie O, who I named after my beloved Daddy.  She’s a Havanese doggie born with a golden heart, and everyone she meets thinks she is paws-itively sensational.  

Jackie O and I are on an adventure to Austin, Texas. I was taking Jackie O to a 29-day boot camp. I was walking her around the airport, wearing her out so she would be the perfect little puppy on the airplane. While I was wearing her out, I met this family of five. At first they were hesitant to say “hi” to her. Then the smallest, this cute  little boy, said “doggie.” They began to play together.

I was bold enough to ask if they wanted me to save the family seats next to me and Jackie O. They said yes, so I did.

Gabe and Jackie O became best friends and he still talks about her to this day.

It was truly remarkable to see their connection.

Pure joy and love between the two of them. Jackie O had a new friend!

I’ve seen it time and time again – Jackie O speaks to people and opens their hearts.

Be a Bridge to the World

Curiosity is a great character trait to have. My ideal clients are curious about who they are, who their team is, how to build a more cohesive team, and a values driven organization. 

In short, when you’re curious you are on the pathway to expansion, learning and growth.

I tell my clients that continuous learning and improving are the pillars to massive success.

And to learn continuously, you have to be curious.
