Hi I'm Kelsey. I'm a nonprofit founder, side hustler, travel addict, and ice cream enthusiast who is perpetually confused about what my path in life is. I am learning by doing and letting you know what works and what doesn't. If you are interested in personal success, business success, and/or philanthropic success you are in the right place!
I have done quite a bit of traveling in the 26 years of my life, 21 countries, 32 states, and 5 provinces to be exact, and in a few weeks I will be setting off yet another international adventure. This will be my second trip to the chaotic, beautiful, and heartbreaking continent of Africa this year.My nonprofit work has brought me to Africa multiple times (Cameroon and Malawi to be exact), and I have learned a lot from working and traveling as a solo female in this challenging environment.
Today I'm gonna share a piece of advice I got from my dad when I was little that has dramatically changed my business and life. It's simple, easy to implement, and is practically guaranteed to make a huge difference in your life. Ready for this wisdom? Here it is:
I didn't realize how effective a tool public speaking is until I was asked to speak at a small conference after I built my first school abroad. I accepted the invitation and planned for a few weeks, doing my best to memorize a short presentation about my work. Going into it I thought maybe 20-30 people would be interested enough to listen to what I had to say and then it would all be over.
I just got off a Skype call with an older friend of mine and was so dumbfounded by our conversation that I could barely speak. Literally, this conversation completely changed my perspective on the 'what should I be doing with my life' question.
