Why Start Now
While grieving the sudden passing of my brother in 2022 (due to suicide), I am acutely aware of the universal need that we all have to maintain a sense of well being and belonging. Perhaps you too have experienced loss - whether it be a loved one, job, family unit, etc. We've all experienced isolation surrounding the world-wide Covid-19 pandemic. Seasonal changes and colder days of winter can increase feelings of isolation. Feeling like an "outsider" can be overwhelming. Though our individual experiences may be different, we are united by a deep rooted need to feel connected.
I've personally experienced how community involvement and creating a positive support system can lead to a greater overall sense of well being. That is why I have established these three C's (Contributing, Collaborating, and Celebrating) as the core values in support of my mission as Your Community Connector™. My hope is to continue to carve out a path that will help others gain a stronger sense of self-worth and inclusion as part of their local community.
As the Founder of www.CreateYourPotential.com, and having a professional event planning and marketing background, I love promoting experiences that create positive and genuine connections. Feel free to check out this quick video of one of the many networking events that I have hosted here as well as some of my top tips for networking effectively as featured in Forbes. As a motivational speaker and author, I invite you to learn more about my "rise up" story in the collaborative book, Women Who Rise.
Collaborating with venues, event planners, and other influencers to advocate for mental health awareness, inclusion, & community support.
How This Will Be Achieved:
In my brother's memory, I am launching Community Connector Events™ to support local professionals in developing stronger support systems and community connections. Raising awareness for mental health advocacy resources, collaborating with local organizations & charities, as well as celebrating communities & people who create a positive local impact.
