I was fortunate enough to attend yesterday's NAWBO Chicago Celebration of Achievement conference in Oak Brook. The event was fortifying and nurturing from start to finish. But, by far the highlight, was getting to meet, watch and listen to Precious Williams who delivered the keynote. Ms. Williams takes Fierce to a new level. You have to get to know her inspiring story of dreaming big and not letting anything, I mean anything, stop you from getting to that dream. From trauma at a young age to homelessness to being told left and right that she wasn't made for "it", whatever it was. She traveled on, learned from it all, and proved them completely wrong.
Precious' energy is palpable and her personality fills the room. And, yet she wasn't just a personality. Here are two of the many deep and inspirational points she made during her keynote that I couldn't help but write down.
1) Be Somebody Nobody Thought You Could Be...Not Even Yourself
2) God Doesn't Call the Qualified; He Qualifies the Called
Thank you Precious Williams for becoming the one to bring out the Fierce Woman in so many others! Please check out Precious and her many fierce acts. You will be inspired and you will laugh!
Thank you @nawbo-chicago for a great conference!
