Yvette SegarraManager of Special Events / New Jersey Credit Union League
It is my pleasure to recommend Karen McCullough – she did an outstanding job at our convention. Attendees ranged in age from 18 to 85, and they all took something away. Change is Good – You Go First! People took selfies, interacted with each other, which is not the norm for our people. Not a negative word about Karen’s keynote – I sent her name across the country to all of my counterparts in the credit union industry – Karen is a Home Run!

It's a natural thing for human beings to be attracted to those like them, and it is also natural for anyone to steer clear of those that give off a different vibe. Research shows that our brains are wired for judgments. But, actually, it is a survival tool. Think back to the days of the caveman when he was out looking for food and came across a group of other cavemen around a water hole. Our caveman had to make a decision instantly whether they were friends or “white walkers,” killing all in their path. Our brains instantly signal us—beware of what is unknown and run!Read More ›

I am excited to be working with a fantastic new business coach but I am noticing that I am having a tough time falling asleep. My mind keeps going over all of the NEW projects and creative ideas that are being presented. Being an (ENFP) entrepreneur I like my day to be open and lose- that means I don’t always follow the processes in place - but now with so many new ideas on the table, I need to focus and determine where to put my energy and my time. Now I need to get my ideas and projects out of my head and on to paper. I might even need to stat making a daily to-do list.Read More ›
