The above picture is of 82 women who are ready to get back in shape! About two months ago I was introduced to a program called Black Girls Run. Upon researching I discovered that they had a chapter in Philadelphia and yesterday was a new member meet up on Boat House Row. I was absolutely amazed at all of the women who were there and ready to take charge of their fitness. They were from all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes. There were runners, walkers, joggers, and woggers (those who jog and walk). I discovered that I am a Wogger! I Wogged 3 miles and it did not feel like work! I had an awesome time and I will be joining these ladies next week for their 5:15am run. I am looking forward to getting fit and I believe that this is a great first step!

Invest In You

to use, give, or devote, as for a purpose or to achieve something

Recently, I have been apart of many conversations regarding investments. With the recent Facebook IPO frenzy, everyone is putting on their Wall Street hats and are hyped to go dump their savings to invest in Facebook. It amazes me how many people are willing to invest in someone else’s success before their own. To be clear, I am an advocate of SMART investing when you are willing AND able. However, I am a full fledged cheerleader of investing in one’s self.

R.O.I. (Return On Investment)

In April, I attended a Social Media Workshop that was held in downtown New York City. The workshop was ridiculously priced at $25.00!!! For the amount of invaluable information, I would have payed 10x’s that amount! In the past year, I have invested more time, money, and effort into myself than I have in my entire life. The return on investment on that is priceless. You can not put a price tag on self development, a healthier body, and/or a better spirit. All of these things make you a better person and in business people work with people they like.

So I challenge everyone who reads this to try investing in themselves before they invest in a company. Things such as books, seminars, conferences, fitness activities, better food, volunteering, charities, etc., all are all investments for a better you!
