I just spent an amazing five days with my dear friend, Connie Green.
Connie flew into the Pensacola Airport near my home on Thursday night.
I picked her up and we headed north (oddly with the speedometer not working) to a mastermind retreat in Northern Alabama held by our mutual friend, David Perdew (of NAMS) and his family including his smart daughter Jenn, at his home.
We brainstormed and strategized for 2 days (Friday and Saturday), focusing some time on each of our businesses so we can all grow even more in the coming months. We also had a really nice hike in the woods on David's beautiful property, got to love on David's 2 dogs and his cat, watched the Alabama vs. LSU game, and ate delicious food cooked by David's beautiful bride, Charlsa.
Here we are before our hike. Left to right, David, Jenn Perdew, me (looking so funny), Connie.
On Sunday, Connie and I left Alabama and headed back to Pensacola, where we spent the night at the Hilton on Pensacola Beach (which was very nice). We relaxed there, and enjoyed some quiet time. Then, Connie spent her last night here at my home. I made her dinner and she slept in my daughter's comfy bed. Yesterday morning she headed home.
Some people come into your life and just make you want to be a better version of yourself. Connie is one of those people to me.
I actually started calling her “Connie Gump” because her life story has so many pieces and parts. Here's how some of her stories started…
- When I was selling cars…
- The third time I had cancer…
- After hurricane Andrew, when my house was destroyed…
- When I was in Thailand…
- So, after my husband died…
- Did I ever tell you I was a gym teacher?
- When I visit my family in Finland every summer…
I told her she's lived more in her years than anyone I've ever known.
Well, it got me thinking of how I could possibly give back to Connie enough for all she's done for me. And, I thought “a blog post is a start”.
If you're not familiar with Connie yet, here's her bio.
