6,200 entrepreneurs came together this weekend for our first @rise.biz conference bringing our @letsrise.co event count to 17K+ attendees in 2019. I have a hard time processing that so many people would fly in from other countries and drive across states and pay for hotel rooms and get childcare and take on a thousand other hurdles I’ll never fully know but totally appreciate— just to be with us at a RISE weekend. I’m so grateful to EVERY attendee who put their faith in me and our team. I pray that each weekend was a blessing to you the way it was to us. Most importantly I feel honor bound to tell you that this year stretched me and challenged me in ways I can’t even explain. A year ago today I was looking at the audacious goals in front of me and felt nowhere near emotionally or physically strong enough to pull them off. I didn’t even know HOW we’d pull it off. To my knowledge, there isn’t another woman on earth who puts on multi day conferences / speaking each day for 4+ hours (or one time 6.5 because I went WAY over teaching / to crowds this size. When you’ve never done something before and haven’t ever seen someone like you do it either, it’s scary as hell to take it on. So I’ll tell you what I told my fellow entrepreneurs this weekend… the secret to how I achieved this success (and every other in my life) I took one more step. And then another. Even when it’s terrifying or you feel weary to the bone you can always take one more step forward. One more step. And another. It adds up. I finished up yesterday and as I sat on the plane home I said the most sincere prayer. I looked out the window and thought “Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God! Thank you for making me strong enough. Thank you for holding me up. Thank you for helping me take one more step. I hope when they looked at me they saw you. I hope when they heard me tell them I love them what they really heard was that YOU love them. I hope they know they are capable and worthy. I hope they saw your strength and your provision— even if I did drop a few f bombs. Thank you for showing me big dreams and for giving me big opportunity. Amen.” Thank YOU friends. #risebusiness #risexdallas #risexminn
