[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Returning Stronger Day 9

Fired up with the seeds of joy, there's a bacchanal to destroy - David
Rudder

I walked into the room and to my surprise, there were at least 1500 people
there! Here I was thinking that this was a small gathering, oh nothing of
the sort. While I was talking more people kept streaming in Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a growing event all over the world,
the week celebrates entrepreneurs and their journeys by sharing stories,
providing networking opportunities and celebrating their achievements I was up second, admittedly nervous. New crowd and new story in between all
of the nerves I realized, I loved this, I loved being there on the stage
sharing lessons on the journey, I loved hearing the questions and learning,
I loved the buzz. That's it, this is the angle, this is where the passion
lies.

So I ended the talk, went to my hotel to check out, the bill has not been
paid they told me I cannot leave until the Company settles it, I called the
Company to find out what's the story, I was told that the boss has to come
to the hotel and pay it with her credit card. I shook my head. Simple
things made complicated. I called her, she went on on the phone about the
process, I listened. Then I said when are you coming, I have a plane to
catch, she said in 30 minutes, I am still waiting Will let you know what happens on the flip side Peace
