This morning I attended “Connecting Things in Louisville” to hear Kara DeLost’s story.
Kara is the Director of Marketing at Power Creative, a board member at The Crane House, and the VP of Diversity at American Advertising Federation Louisville.
Call her a mover, a maker, a shaker, a hustler, a lady boss, glass ceiling breaker, or any other synonym you wish to use to describe her. But to describe her you must meet her or follow her on social media to learn where she’s been, what she’s currently doing, and her future path.
It was an honor to brainstorm with her and to help her write her own story. As a past speaker, Kara reached out to me to talk about my experience and what I spoke about. On my way to meet her, I picked up a notebook to inspire her. The quote on the book was “Write Your Own Story” and to my excitement, that was the theme she used for her topic.
As you may know, I love helping other women. It’s my biggest guilty pleasure. So talking to Kara and connecting with her about Connecting Things and observing it come to fruition was my feel amazing moment for today.
Super awesome bonus, I was able to come to today’s event! I couldn’t help looking around the room at everyone’s faces as she spoke. I was just to say I know her. Her knowledge got her to where she is and her gumption will guide her as a mover, a maker, a shaker, a hustler, a lady boss, and a glass ceiling breaker in our flourishing city.
She ended her story by sharing four takeaways:
• Understand what it is you have to offer.
• Document and celebrate progress.
• Give help as much as you ask for it.
• If you want something to change. You have to change something.
Bravo, Kara! Bravo!
