“People will not give you their hand until they can see your heart.”
— John Maxwell
The above quote really resonated with me. I believe in showing people my heart, and this message to you comes from my heart: thanks for all the continued support. My son, John Robert, is not only back to school after his open-heart surgery, but he is also back to several of his activities—dancing, drama and Boy Scouts. It’ s great to have him doing so well. He is full of energy, and just gained back the 6 pounds that he lost at the hospital. We are so blessed. It will take a few more weeks until he is swimming or playing basketball; he just needs to heal. Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes. They have certainly worked, and they have meant so much to me and my family.
And now, how are you doing? It’s already the beginning of the 4thQuarter; as you spring to the end-of-year finish line, what are you going to do to make it memorable? Have you set up goals that you want to complete by the end of December? Have you written them down, and are you looking at them on a daily—or at least weekly— basis? With 75 more days to go before the year ends, there’s still plenty of time to achieve most goals.
Speaking of goals, I am moderating an event for MDG on Tuesday, October 16th at 5:30 pm entitled “Transitioning into and within the Medical Device Industry.” I will have a stellar panel consisting of Keith Faucher from Getinge, Steven Colbert from CardioFocus, and Andrea Cahill from Boston Scientific, as well as several guests discussing Networking. This is the 12th Annual Event that I’ve had the privilege of putting together for MDG. It is being held at Regis College in Weston, MA. If you’re in the medical device industry, or if you want to get into the field or learn more about the Industry, I encourage you to come and join us. It will be time and money well spent. It’s only $25 if you register in advance. To learn more or to register, please click here.
Also, I wanted to acknowledge my book Motivation Now! which has just celebrated its first-year anniversary. This year certainly went by quickly. My goal last year was to finish the book and to have 50 reviews on Amazon and I am proud to say that I was able to make both goals. This year my goal was to conduct 20 paid speeches and to go from being an Academy member with National Speakers Association to a Professional Member. I completed this goal and I met a lot of great people along the way that are now part of my members. It is not too late to leave a review, I greatly appreciate every review on Amazon. Wow what can happen in a year!
I know many of you already have a copy of Motivation Now! (thank you!). But if you haven’t and would like one, please check out Amazon to order your copy. You can also view the first chapter for free (click here) and learn about goal setting— which fits into your working on your quarterly goals. If you buy my book online it’s $12.99 plus shipping, or you can buy it directly from me for only $10.00 (no tax and no shipping charge). Just a reminder: I donate 50% of the proceeds to Children’s Hospital. Send me an email if you are interested in purchasing directly from me.
Thanks for all of your love, help and support. It all goes back to the quote on the top of this page. I hope that you see my heart. I also hope to see you at the Transitioning meeting next Tuesday, October the 16th. It really does take a village to put on an event like this.
Have a great weekend!
With gratitude and best wishes,
Lisa Sasso, Executive Coach & Motivational Speaker
