This young conference held in South Dakota was one of my favorite stops on the tour and I walked away with several new friends who have made my life better since that day. One of them, I get to introduce you to today is Ellen McGirt.
Ellen is a Senior Writer for Fast Company Magazine and has covered everyone from Matt Damon to President Obama. I’ve always been a big fan of the magazine and I always get a bit of a kick anytime I pick up an issue and see her name on an article.
But, her journey to where she is today is the story I really wanted to tell. Her passion for writing and sharing stories with others shines through. When I heard how 9-11 changed her life, I wanted the world to hear her story.
I think anyone who dreams of being a writer or who longs to become a Passion Hit will learn something from her advice. What she has to say about making sure you take care of your family and needs first is a vital step that I fear far too many people forget about and it is the most important.
