My fortune cookies said:

“Good things come to those who wait. Be patient!”

This fortune cookie reminds me of one of my favorite moments on Shark Tank. Robert Herjavec said it takes 8 to 10 years to become an “overnight success.” I have always wondered when do you start the clock on the 8-10 years. So far in 2019, I have created four KTLA TV segments and had print stories for enRoute Magazine (Air Canada,) Ms. Magazine, Hemispheres (United Airlines) and American Airlines! I have had many digital stories and this month did an instagram takeover with PENN Alumni for University of Pennsylvania. I cannot wait to see what my patience brings NEXT!

The fifth month of 2019 is ending! Have you been taking steps to turn your wishes into realities? I am so excited with all that I have created so far this year. Thank you for your all of your support. Lisa
