100 Days until the Rio Olympic Games!
Some days I feel like I have the best job in the world . . this was definitely one of those days! I had the incredible privilege of travelling with some precious cargo (1996 Atlanta Olympic torch) to Jacksonville, FL to Adecco HQ to deliver a lunchtime speech to my friends and colleagues. I got to share a little bit about the "other" Angel they rarely see in our corporate environment. I got to talk about the boxer, warrior and athlete that lives inside me. The lessons I have learned in the boxing ring. To share my personal story and relate it back to what types of challenges elite athletes face as well as why athletes can be stellar employees because of the set of tools they have learned through sport.
We all get caught up in our day-to-day and we forget about the good work Adecco does in helping members of Team USA succeed in life and in sport. Today marks exactly 100 Days out to the Rio Olympic Games where hundreds of U.S. athletes have been pouring their heart and soul into preparing to represent their country on the world's largest stage. Today we celebrate Team USA and we celebrate ourselves in our own quest towards personal excellence. Thank you to all my co-workers who helped make this special day . . . well even more special!
