Anyone who knows me personally, will tell you how much I love networking. I get super motivated when I meet new people and hear about what they’re up to so of course I got excited when I first discovered this week’s #FridayFav:

Whether you're headed out of town or planning a mini-staycation this 4th of July holiday, today's Friday Fav will definitely start the weekend off on a positive note!
You may know him from his popular podcast, “The School of Greatness” (SOG) where he's interviewed Tony Robbins, Ariana Huffington and just about everyone in between.
If you follow me on Instagram you know I travel a lot for work which allows me a lot of "read time” on the plane. This past week as I headed to Miami, I stumbled on an article in Glamour magazine about Toms Shoes. I almost passed over it since I thought I already knew all there was about the brand and their One for One mission - to donate a pair of shoes for every pair sold. But low and behold I discovered this week's Friday Fav:
If I could describe myself ten years ago, I was spunky, outgoing, motivated and full of vibrant life. I was a force of energy and creativity. I busted my tail to land in my dream industry; producing, directing and writing for television. I constantly had to pinch myself that I had done it. I had taken the risk of leaving the city I loved - Chicago - and moved west to follow my dreams.
To this day, I still acknowledge the risks I took to chase my dreams. If I did it then, I can do it again.
Along for the ride came my best friend/fiancé and as we navigated this scary new world, at least we knew we had each other. Those first few years were tough! Emotionally, romantically, financially. We were both trying to find our way in our respective businesses as well as cope with being two fish out water in a town known for hanging you out to dry.
