Get It Right Today, Not Tomorrow

Do your employees and leaders too often operate in Survival Mode, putting out fires and putting off until tomorrow what should be done today? This program powerfully dispels the notion that there will always be a tomorrow in which we can finish today’s unfinished business and moves individuals to work and live with intentionality.

Safety: Don’t Count on 2nd Chances

Can too much experience be a bad thing? Absolutely…if it leads to complacency. The highly experienced pilots of Flight 965 were lulled into a false sense of security that led to the deaths of 160 people. Mercedes’ one-of-a-kind safety presentation uses the factual account of the crash of Flight 965 as an anchor to drive home the dangers of complacency and the importance of situational awareness.

There are a million and one reasons why Make-A-Wish North Texas deserves your support during #NorthTexasGivingDay, but as a Wish mom I can personally attest to the joy it gives a Wish child, the boost it gives to Wish kid’s siblings, and the priceless hope it gives an entire Wish family as it restores their faith in their medical fight and endears then back to the caring community that helped make the Wish happen. So thankful for the #joyhopeandstrength my son Dorian’s Wish gave our entire family! ... See MoreSee Less

Imagine your 14 year old lying about his age to enlist and serve in the military because of Pearl Harbor.
Imagine kids with so much patriotism, so much honor and such a strong sense of duty that they would leave every comfort of life to go across the world to risk their lives to defend our ideals of freedom.
The youngest WWII boy enlisted (under a fake age) was only TWELVE years old. Can you imagine how scared and overwhelmed they must have felt?
These are many first hand accounts we learned from the volunteer veterans and the exhibits at the WWII Museum in New Orleans this weekend. With the sad passing of Senator John McCain this same weekend, I can't imagine a better way my family could have spent our time learning in appreciation the valor and sacrifices made by so many.

Scott Fischer and I went to this WWII museum in NOLA in May, we were blown away, amazingly well done museum! I am sure the boys learned a lot, Scott and I certainly did! ❤️

That looks amazing. Bless those young men for keeping us free.

So moved by the surprise wish reveal and spending time with my philanthropy partner in crime was the icing on the cake. ... See MoreSee Less
