When I started planning the Girl’s Guide To Finding Solutions I had several grand ideas in mind. Then I realized I wasn’t having a retreat for myself, I was planning a retreat for mothers and daughters. It was important that I put my personal feelings about what I thought my audience needed aside to really learn what they needed! I took the time to learn my audience, to read the books and to talk to the experts. From there it allowed me to provide activities, keynote and guest speakers that truly got to the heart of what both mothers and daughters needed. I had to remove myself and sometimes that’s the hardest thing to do.
