Let me tell you why this is so special right now. I feel like this award is confirmation for my decision about the Influence Conference. I was so conflicted about whether or not this was the right season to invest time and money into my writing and into a new career. Such a sweet gift and at just the right time. (I was kind of hoping to receive some financial confirmation, but I’ll take whatever sign I can get.) I know there will be enough money in the end and I’ve quit worrying about where it is going to come from.
