A Splash of Summer: Lean Into The Good Vibes

As a little girl growing up in the South, I eagerly anticipated summer’s arrival because it brought with it my birthday, lots of hot weather, swimming, 4-H Summer Camp, barbeques, July 4th fireworks, and a new splash of summer outfit. My new outfit was an Independence Day tradition and meant summer was really in gear. A Splash of Summer: Lean into the Good Vibes is the theme of this issue of Career Mastered Magazine because alas, it’s summertime! Jasmine Ball in her article A Splash of Summer says it’s the season of warmth, optimism, and joy that so many of us look forward to all year round. She reminds us that while we are leaning into the good vibes that summer brings, let’s also challenge ourselves to duplicate this same positive mindset and optimism year-round so that our everyday lives are met with a splash of what summer represents to help us strike a healthier balance of work and play. As you read through this issue, you will be drawn to lean into your girl tribe, your personal board of directors, the power of influence, enjoyable vacation spots, using your natural looks and so much more.

Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that we just concluded the 9th Career Mastered National Diversity Summit & Leadership Awards in Atlanta, GA. Here’s how Forbes described the Summit it in its March 23 article — “Part motivational summit, part mini-business school, part money management workshop, and very much a career planning download, the 2023 Career Mastered National Diversity Summit & Leadership Awards – presented practical advice – and lots of personal stories. Speakers included a wide array of high-performing leaders across sectors, several of whose companies sponsored the Summit — including Mercedes Benz (title sponsor), Walgreens, Lowes, Amazon, New York Life, and many others — as well as a few motivational speakers.”

It was a transformation experience for me and many of the attendees. Lean in to read Dr. Sabrina Jackson’s top 10 take aways from the summit and be sure to follow us on social media to get the details for the 2024 Summit to be held in Detroit, MI. Let the Summer Begin!
