It seems like just yesterday I was writing my “one word” post to kick off 2019. Yet here we are already, halfway through the year. My one world was “standout.” And the first six months have been standout, indeed.
From the success of The Modern Seller to exciting client and strategic partnerships, I’d like to share some of the highlights and happenings with you.
Girl Scouts Founder Juliette Gordon Low once said, “The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.”
As the new president and chair of the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Board of Directors, I’m ready to make history! In this week’s blog, I share reflections on giving back, and as a bonus, provide tips for developing your own world-class board.
If you’ve been part of my community for a while, you might be familiar with my One Word Tradition. Each January, I land on the word that I want to live my year by, professional and personal. This year, it’s “Standout.” You can read more in this post, and watch my short video.
As you start your 2019, I hope this gives you some ideas on creating One Word or a personal theme for yourself. When you reflect back, you might be surprised at how one word does make a difference for your path.
The first half of 2018 was filled with some big progress, and in this post I’d like to share a few second half highlights with you. As I created this list, I couldn’t help but be filled with gratitude. Every one of these highlights is rooted in relationships. I’m reminded of the African proverb we see quoted so often: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” My name might be on the blog post, but there is no way I could’ve accomplished these goals without you, my team, or the partnerships in my life.
Thank you for being a part of my journey this year. Happy holidays to you and your family. I look forward to helping your organization create more sales success in 2019.
Goal setting is a powerful experience. If you’re pondering that next big dream goal in your life or if you’re in the midst of chasing one, here are a few surprising, unexpected lessons I learned from writing my book, The Modern Seller.
Three years ago, I made the decision on a new destination. I wanted to use my 20 years of B2B sales, leadership, and entrepreneurial experience in new ways. That led me to add sales training programs and sales keynotes under Impact Instruction Group, the custom learning solutions company I founded in 2007.
Those programs have taken off… so much so, that it was time for a transition, a different direction. You can now find my sales training, keynotes, leadership development programs, and resources at AmyFranko.com. And we haven’t forgotten about custom training! We’re still here to support your blended learning, custom training and curriculum design needs at the new ImpactInstruction.com.
I invite you to visit both new sites. As you’re planning your next sales kickoff or leadership event and see a sales keynote or training program that could fit, let’s schedule a conversation.
