Goodbye 2012...Hello 2013!

By Jenny Addis

With 2012 behind us, I want to thank each of you for supporting my "Hey Jen!" column, whether you're an avid reader and/or interact by writing in questions and commenting on the context. Without you, I couldn't do what I love to do...write! As well as, sharing my experiences with others, physically challenged or not. I'm excited to welcome 2013 and continue writing my column for an amazing magazine and our dedicated MW readers!

Reflections ~ 2012 Highlights
January ~ My usual getaway includes, blue waters, sandy beaches & temps no less than 80 degrees, so I found myself in an unlikely "state"... on a cattle ranch in South Dakota! As my career as a Motivational Speaker grows in WI. it was an honor meeting Gary & Leann Hardie from Seneca, SD. Leann was drawn to my story and felt my message needed to be shared. Soon after, Joel Price, Superintendent of Faulkton School District, invited me to speak to their students & communities at large. Although, we fought WI. weather conditions, 4 flights & a damaged wheelchair before reaching SD...it didn't deter us. I spent the next few days meeting every Faulkton student, parent & member of the community. My deepest gratitude goes out to everyone that made this opportunity possible!! What was business, turned out to be "my" pleasure!!
