When you get a chance to hang out with someone as fabulous as Remi Owadokun of TMP Academy, you have no choice but to say yes. And the coaching session with Remi was amazing!
Over the weekend I had the privilege of hanging out with her and I learned so much, but one thing I learned more than anything, more than all the talk, more than all the slides…
Anyway before I get into all that, did you know that my wedding anniversary was in August? And did you know that Remi Sent me a cake. I mean this is a woman that I just met this year and she sent me the most delicious and beautiful cake. That’s Remi.
During the training she did something similar, she brought a cake and an award for her mentor Steve Harris, and an award for John Obidi (Mr. Phenomenal himself).
So what did I learn throughout everything?
What did I learn from Remi’s generosity and fabulousness?
What did I learn when her guest speakers were so excited to share their time and knowledge?
I learned that giving precedes greatness, not the other way around.
So if I want to be great I need to give. If I want to be greater I need to give more…
See the funny thing is that many people say that they will start giving when they become great, but the truth is that you have to give now to become great, and not the other way around.
TooLateToBeNobody has gotten me even more excited about 2017…
What are you excited about in the new year?
What are you struggling with?
