Moxie Chat Highlights:
1. How do you define SUCCESS?
Success is about delivering the goods. Success is when I help a client achieve their public relations goals. Success is when I write an article that makes someone think or inspires them or exposes them to something they wouldn’t have found otherwise.
2. Share the THREE WORDS that describe you BEST and why!
Writer — Writing is the primary way I’ve always communicated with the world
Empath — one of the reasons I like working with real estate agents is that I can connect with their energy and how hard they work to achieve their goals
Grace –(definitely not the physical kind, I’m clumsy) but a sense of moving with considered intention in life and work
3. What is the best advice you have ever received?
The leader of my MFA program, author Sena Jeter Naslund always said to her students that their competition wasn’t in the room with them, it was in the library. I believe we don’t compete against each other, we compete against a standard of excellence.
4. What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I had a side gig as an astrologer in my 20s and still believe in the birth chart as a way to gain insights into personal development
5. If you could go back 11 years – what would you tell yourself?
Be clear about your worth and what you bring to the table.
6. What is one habit you are trying to build?
Getting on the phone with people and not relying on email
7. How do you make a difference in your client’s lives?
I help agents better define what is special about them and their listings
8. What does MOXIE mean to you?
Moxie is having the confidence and spirit to step outside of what is traditionally expected.
9. What does a “perfect day” in your life look/feel like?
My perfect day would involve a mix of both solitude and togetherness. It would include a workout, a walk in nature, a great meal with friends and my husband and time to read and write.
10. What is your ONE WORD for the next 12 months? Why?
Confidence — I’m a warrior for clients but I’m learning to be a warrior for myself.
Listen in to hear her RAPID FIRE answers! :)
