A few days ago, I was hooded as a Doctor of Psychology, Organizational Leadership specialization and got to wear a funny hat .

20 minutes after the event completed, I was reminded of my role as a momma of 4 and got the honor of finding and providing lotion to my 3 yr old…and got to wear another hat while wearing the funny hat.


We wear many hats…many roles..lots of varied responsibilities. It should not be a burden but something we use as tools to better ourselves.

My student status helped me be a better military officer through learning how to effectively manage my time…my parent hat helps me learn patience…and my commander hat has helped me to focus and discipline myself so that I can reach the goals I set for myself and the unit I am honored to serve.

None of this could have been possible without an awesome support network…my husband is a rock star…my family is crazy and inspiring and my network of friends…to include other amazing officers and mentors, moms and aunts, leaders and active followers…who have celebrated the hard hats, the funny hats, the tough hats, the odd hats  that we have all had to wear to become the people we are today…

So I post this to say…you can wear all of them…it will all be okay…keep your goals in mind, your humor intact, your lotion nearby…and rock all the hats you are lucky enough to wear.

Lead well.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    1. Thanks for checking out the website – I am updating it to make it easier to add items. Being so new I am not ready to add too many links but thanks for the notes and I will look into them!

  2. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
