Playing Small Moment
• While working for another speaker she was asked to introduce him at several events over the course of the seven years she worked for him and she said no every time because thought it would be too hard for her. Hear how networking turned the tide for her.
The Wake Up Call
• For an upcoming speaking engagement Jodi had been asked to provide a biography and nothing else. When she arrived she came face-to-face with a photo of herself hula-hooping at a barbecue that the event coordinator had pulled off of facebook without her knowledge or consent. The lesson she learned was to always anticipate the needs of others and to take full responsibility of her image by going above and beyond for others.
Style of Leadership
• Jodi likes to have a good time, does not like conflict but she likes partnerships. Working with her husband they are fortunate that their strengths balance each other out.

What Would You Change?
• Jodi would have started taking initiative sooner and not waited for permission. Waiting until you have all the answers is not the only way – take a small step.
