Michelle Patterson would like to invite you to an exciting event that she will be speaking at, called the Think and Grow Rich Summit 2013, in Del Mar California, this April 25-27. The event honors, her all time favorite, and the granddaddy of the personal development movement, Napoleon Hill.
Tony Rubleski, event promoter of the Think and Grow Rich Summit, has given her a great opportunity to invite a few of her close friends and colleagues to join her.
Here are some things you can gain and enjoy at this event:
1. Proven Success Principles. The principles outlined in Think and Grow Rich are proven and effective. Over the past 75 years, millions of people have read the book and countless thousands have implemented the laws of success and benefited greatly! This event will expose you to people who have actually utilized the laws of success in their own lives and how you can learn from their successes and failures.
2. The lineup. The speaker lineup is a mix of both, industry leading and up-and-coming speakers from business and personal development. This insures a broad range of perspectives from those who’ve made it and those who are rising up the ranks. Their experiences and strategies for success are sure to be inspiring, instructive and highly revealing.
3. The three-day agenda. Each day we focus on critical aspects of Napoleon Hill’s work. On Dayone, we will explore the proven principles set forth in Think and Grow Rich and their profound impact on the speakers’ lives then, on Day two we will explore Hill’s latest release: Outwitting the Devil, which many believe is the missing link in successfully implementing the Laws of Success. These first two days will also help prepare you for the “live” mastermind session led by handpicked experts on Day three. The experience is sure to leave you with a new perspective of what is possible, but more importantly, help break the shackles of what is holding you back and keeping you stuck.
4. Unique and fast passed agenda. Shorter presentation times and never-before-shared stories from our presenters will help keep the content fresh and moving.
5. We will be honoring excellence. Our awards winners will tell their stories of persistence and how they overcame obstacles that would make most people give up.
6. The location. The Del Mar Fairgrounds is one of the most stunning places in Southern California, with its ample acreage sprawling near the sunny Pacific Ocean, just north of San Diego.
7. An event also created to benefit The Napoleon Hill Foundation, helping to spread the message of Napoleon Hill and the Foundation’s mission to make the world a better place in which to live, is the primary goal of this event.

Reposted from ABC News
|Sheryl Sandberg is the female force behind the largest social networking site in the world. As Facebook‘s chief operating officer, Sandberg has broken down barriers in Silicon Valley, but has noticed far fewer women rising the ranks along with her.|
That’s the impetus behind her new book, “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead,” which hits stores today and has already opened up a dialogue on women in the workplace. Sandberg, also a director of the Walt Disney Company, parent of ABC News, encourages women to “lean in” and to take action to reach their potential and the top of their professions.
In the spirit of Sandberg’s “Lean In” campaign, we asked the female journalists of ABC News to “lean in,” too, and to share the best career advice they have received. Click through to see what our ABC News anchors and correspondents have to say.
“I remember coming home from career day in junior high. I told my mom that I was going to be a physical ed teacher and basketball coach. My mom was a longtime educator, so I thought she’d be happy with my decision. She asked me why I had chosen this career path. My response: Because at career day I was told that’s the only job for a girl wanting to stay involved in sports. Thankfully, my mom told me never to let someone else decide what I could or could not do … period. I went on to realize my dream and became the first black woman sports journalist/broadcaster at ESPN.”
“Don’t be afraid; most of us don’t find our bliss. Never fear, your bliss will find you. I faced failure when I became the first female news co-anchor on a major network. I was a total flop, but my lack of success in that venture inspired me to work all the harder in my other endeavors. If you have a failure, you will rise; you will be fine; you will work your way back. Instead of sinking, stay afloat even if it means treading water for a bit. You will reach shore.”
“When I started my career as a television reporter eons ago, I was determined to get the same opportunities that my ‘brother’ reporters were getting. No flower shows for me. If they were covering police raids, I was too. If they were covering City Hall, I was too.
“This was not merely to prove a point. This is what I found interesting and challenging, so of course I could do it!
“But one very wise fellow reporter gave me very good advice as I tried to foot stomp my way to success: ‘You must have a sense of humor.’ The truth is I always had made fun of myself and laughed at some situations in which I found myself as a woman, but I was convinced if I did that in a professional environment I wouldn’t be taken seriously. Quite the opposite.
“If you can relate to your colleagues and those you cover as a successful but very real human being, I think it is far easier to be part of a work environment and excel.”
–Martha Raddatz, ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent
“One of the best pieces of advice I’ve received relating to my career came from one of my first mentors, Maria Bartiromo. Maria is a true pioneer in the field of financial journalism. She was the first woman to report from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, truly breaking through the glass ceiling that for years excluded females from what was considered one of the last male bastions.
“Maria once described some of the intimidating, brutish, and downright misogynistic treatment she endured on a daily basis in her early days of reporting. It was clear that many men did not want her there and were trying to send her a message through their routine harassment. However, she soon realized that her best revenge would come from a defiant response.
“‘Never let them see you cry, Bianna,’ she told me.
“Hold your head up high, and look past your detractors was the message. She never did let them see her cry.
“I interpreted this to mean that, while women are generally acknowledged (and embraced) for their empathy, it should never be confused for weakness.”
— Bianna Golodryga, co-anchor of “Good Morning America’s” weekend edition, ABC News’ Business Correspondent
“When I was a young, single girl at ABC News, I spent a summer producing a few political pieces with one of the greats, Cokie Roberts. As journalists traveling on the road often do, we started sharing stories about our personal lives. She told me of her days canning peaches and being a stay-at-home mom while her husband worked. And I told her my boyfriend wasn’t asking me to get married and that I dreamed of being a mom someday. I hesitated with the ‘working mom’ title. She told me something that I’ve told countless women over the years. She said, ‘Juju, you CAN have it all, but you can’t necessarily have it all at the same time.’ Sometimes one has to give.
“Some days, I think my head is going to explode. The struggle is omnipresent and the advice I’d layer on top of what Cokie said is that only YOU can define what ‘having it all’ looks like. And only YOU can draw that line between give and take.”
— Juju Chang, ABC News Correspondent
“Take chances and don’t be afraid to try something new. If you aren’t scared, you aren’t growing.”
— Lara Spencer, “Good Morning America” anchor
“Growing up in Iran, I attended a riding school run by a former Iranian army cavalry officer. … This became my sport. … Beginning when I was just five years old, I would be put on a large horse, not a small pony, which immediately set the bar high for what I was expected to do, how I was expected to deal with a big challenge. … I used to fall off the horse regularly, but there was no question of walking away, or giving in to fear or stopping the exercise midway. My instructor would walk over, pat my cheek, and lift me straight back on. Even though, at the time, I probably didn’t understand courage, it was a very early lesson in staying the course. Every time you fall, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep going. As it turned out, the lessons I learned riding formed a strong foundation for the extreme profession of living and working in war zones and other disasters that I’ve taken on.”
— Christiane Amanpour, Global Affairs Anchor for ABC News, excerpted from “The Person Who Changed My Life”
“The best career advice I ever got was from a colleague and it was deceptively simple. I was feeling frustrated and a little hurt to be honest about a flurry of publicity and fanfare that surrounded another colleague who had just been hired. I had never received that much attention myself, and it was hard not to take it personally and not to wonder why I seemed to be working so hard unnoticed.
“When I confessed my insecurities to a friend, he stopped me, and said, ‘Slow and steady wins the race.’ He went on to counsel me to focus on my work, and said that all that hullaballoo around that new hire would soon fade. He was right. It did. I have never forgotten how simple or how important that advice was, or what the value of doing your very best when all else fails, is at the end, the only thing we own.”
— Elizabeth Vargas, “20/20″ co-anchor Click here to watch Vargas’ interview with Sandberg on why women need to “lean in.”
“Do what you love, but don’t allow your career to define you. Too many people are defined by their careers and, when their run ends, they have no idea who they are. Work hard and passionately, but always maintain a healthy perspective. As one person told me: ‘Live on your front porch,’ meaning, imagine yourself later in life, sitting on your front porch, sipping a lemonade. Would that older, wiser version of yourself do anything differently? Live with a conscience — with that wisdom of foresight. Live on your front porch.”
— Paula Faris, ABC News Correspondent
“I received two pieces of advice in my twenties which still resonate: I was the first person in my family to have the opportunity to go to college. On the day I graduated from law school, my father — a wonderful, wise man who worked for the phone company for fifty years, said, ‘Just remember one thing little girl, anyone can have a job they don’t like. Now it’s up to you to find work that interests and inspires you.’
“And so after law school I got a job I loved as a television producer for a public affairs program on PBS. Five years later the founder of Court TV, Steve Brill, offered me a job as an anchor for his new venture. I’d never been on television before. That night I happened to be having dinner with Katharine Hepburn (OK, that’s a longer story). I told her I was thrilled that he’d offered me a three-year contract.
“‘Disaster!’” she said.
“‘Why?’ I asked. ‘It’s fantastic, I get paid for three years even if I am lousy at it.’
“‘That is precisely my point,’ replied Hepburn. “When you are young you need to bet on yourself. You must sign for only a year. If you are good you want to force him to renegotiate, if you’re lousy you need to get the hell out and find something you ARE good at.’ Thanks, Kate.”
— Cynthia McFadden, “Nightline” co-anchor

Whether you are a new graduate, a career changer, or simply looking for work, choosing and then pursuing a new profession can be a daunting task. Many people frantically search for a solution to streamline success but they may not have to look as far as they think. Studies show that when professional work is in sync with what a person enjoys, it creates a virtuous circle of passion and energy that is a prerequisite for prosperity.
“The best way to determine what to do (professionally) is to figure out the things you spend time on that you don’t get paid for,” said Michelle Patterson, CEO of Event Complete. “Do what you love, because you will fall in love every day.”
Event Complete, a full-service event management company, was created by Patterson after years of working as an organizer for Taste of Ladera, the largest not-for-prof- it charity event in Orange County, California. “I’ve always had that mindset of putting on events and pulling people together,” Patterson told “The Suit.”
Patterson and her team offer a slew of services that help turn just about any event into a thriving, revenue-generating affair. The company’s Event Concept Development Plan provides the know-how for everything from site logistics, media relations and security to invitations, stage and entertainment management, and even alcohol and beverage control.
But Event Complete isn’t expecting to host any birthday parties in the near future. Patterson is also executive producer of The California Women’s Conference, the largest women’s symposium in North America. The historic conference boasts many A-list members and keynote speakers such as First Lady Michelle Obama, Deepak Chopra, Jane Fonda, Oprah Winfrey, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the Dalai Lama, Barbara Walters and countless other celebrities. “What I found is that the individuals who are really successful are the best to work with,” Patterson said with a laugh.
Event Complete, which is committed to supporting charities, has developed both the social enterprise and the expertise needed to help generate funds. Patterson notes that communicating with both short-term and long-term sponsors plays a crucial role in efficient fund-raising. “It’s important to understand what the target is you’re focused on for your fund-raising efforts and make sure that (it) is not only communicated through the sponsorship package, but that it gets out to the masses,” she said. Social media, whose influence on fund-raising is unparalleled, can be a useful tool in reaching out to the target audience. “Women represent 78% of consumers and 85% of decision makers,” Patterson figured. “The companies that recognize the impact that social media plays in the marketplace and directly related to women are the companies that are succeeding and doing well.”
For many, the logistics of events can be overly stressful, which is why event planners have become so highly sought after. But Patterson, who says she “works well under pressure,” also feels comfortable in high-octane environments and affirms the need to keep one’s cool. “It’s important, as the leader, to be able to set that tone. It’s being able to go ahead and stay close to what the overall vision and mission is,” she said. Patterson also tells her volunteers to keep things in perspective and not let the stress take hold of them. “I don’t ever want to see them running across the exhibit hall,” she mused, then added seriously, “People notice your energy levels. If you’re stressed out and feeling overwhelmed, then your crowds and audiences will feel that same way.”
Coming into 2013, Patterson plans on going even further in her profession. She has numerous events planned nationwide and internationally, including blueprints for programs in Singapore and for the United Nations. “You can never start soon enough,” she said.
