“word to the wise” wednesday: alexa hampton

When people ask me how I juggle these things, I simply say I’m able to do it all because I don’t like to be too good at any one thing.  As soon as I feel like I’m getting too good at any one thing, I add another.  I take on a new project.  Or have another baby.

Alexa may be joking, but she clearly likes to challenge herself … which is the only way to grow.  And I’d say she manages to be pretty darn amazing at everything she tackles!

What are you tackling this year?

    Ha! Love it I can relate to the bouncing around thing. So do that! How are you? Hows the mentorship program going with TF? Lots of big changes on my end and this year is proving to be great!

    I remember reading her quote and smiling to myself. What a fabulous way to put it!
