Unexpectedly, 2019 turned into the year that I did more speaking engagements than ever before.
It started in late 2018, where a friend asked me to speak at an event she was helping to plan for work. I tried to turn her down citing that I was too busy but she was persistent and insisted that it would be a great experience and they would cover flights and accommodations. It turned out to be an incredible decision.
In the last few months, I’ve found myself particularly captivated by what other people in a similar role to mine might experience. I’m the only public relations person at my company and I work in-house, whereas a lot of PR people I know work for agencies.
I am the kind of person that really thrives on lists. (This probably isn’t surprising if you know me at all.)
I make lists of tasks every day in Todoist, I keep a list of my goals, and the final type of list I make I can only really classify as “career lists.” They are lists I’ve been keeping for a few years now that are related to my career in one way or another.
