A Job Fair, Luncheon and a Challenge!

Posted on September 2, 2015

Oh it’s been awhile (which makes me sad because I love to blog…just don’t do it as frequently as I need to). As I’ve been filling-in for the Afternoons, the schedule I use to have set-in-stone has been tossed out the window and re-configured in multiple ways. With that change has come a bigger challenge in trying to catch-up with friends, one-on-one girlfriend time. But finally it happened, on back-to-back mornings with 2 different friends, and it was REFRESHING! I think you can easily forget how rewarding it is to spend time with the people that matter in life until you actually do it. I know, you may be thinking, “Well Nikki, I have kids and errands to run and everything’s a mess right now….” Stop the excuses right now! All of those excuses were wiped away by just one friend of mine on Tuesday: baby in hand, late from dropping her husband’s lunch off that he forgot, and having to volunteer at a local nursery later on that morning, my friend still took the the time to have an hour breakfast with me and press pause. My mid-week challenge to you is to find the time to do this for your relationship with a friend. I’m not saying it has to be a daily thing, but once a month at least would be a breath of fresh air I believe – it was for me!

As promised, here’s some of the stuff I talked about during the show you may have missed:


  • Workforce Solutions East TX has a job fair going on Thurs. morning, starting at 9am. Make sure to have some resumes ready to pass out, & from my personal experience of Job Fairs, dress to impress (business or business casual). Location: 4100 Troup Hwy, Tyler
  • You’re a small-business owner but still new to everything. Well, Altra Federal Credit Union is hosting a free Small Business Connect Luncheon from 11:30am-1pm on Thurs. at One Realtor Center in Tyler. Spots are limited, so make sure to call 903-579-2208


May the rest of the day go great for you and many blessings -Nikki 😀
