Have you ever heard your phone ring at 3:00am in the morning and hated to pick up the phone thinking something awful must have happened to someone you love? This is “that” story.
It was such a huge honor to tell at the NSN Conference. What I loved most about it was the tremendous support that I felt from the audience. There is nothing better than telling to your peers. Their openness and gracious spirits made me feel like I was telling to dozens of my “best friends”.
