What we’re reading, listening to, working on…
Hi, I’m Ann! I’m a South Carolina homeschooling mom of two boys.
Currently, I have a pile of books on my nightstand I’m trying to get through, including Start With Why by Simon Sinek, Mindset by Carol Dweck, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, and a stack of Southern Living magazines I need to flip through.
When I’m running errands, traveling, or working around the house, you can usually find me listening to an array of podcasts, mostly on digital marketing and professional development. My favorites are Amy Porterfield’s Online Marketing Made Easy, John Maxwell’s Leadership Podcast, and Trent Shelton’s Straight Up Podcast.
However, lately, my brain is on overload and I’ve cut out podcasts temporarily so I can focus on actually checking things off my list rather than making new lists of future ideas. I suppose the smart thing to do would be to find a balance between doing and dreaming. I’ll let you know when I figure that part out.
Besides working on tasks for PodiatryMeetings.com, I also serve clients through my other business, Clover Conferences, where I consult with meeting organizations and provide assistance for a variety of tasks. When I’m not working (a rare sight!), or homeschooling my kids, you can find me planning my next adventure or hanging out on Lake Murray. I’m also an active volunteer in my community through our local women’s club.

Yo Yo Yo! I’m Sarah and I’m your standard Midwest Girl who says “Ope!” and prays for the snow to melt so I can get on the golf course.
When I do have time to read and engage with self-growth, you will find me listening to anything from Tom and Lisa Bilyeu.
While it’s been available for several years now, I’m also obsessed with Jon Taffer’s book, “Raise the Bar.” It’s a text about how to create an amazing restaurant/bar experience, and while that’s clearly not my line of work, the main theme throughout is creating positive customer reactions. Definitely worth the read!
Sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the information available to “better our personal lives and our businesses” so I’m currently working on employing more of what I’ve already consumed and feel like it’s OK to take a 411 intermission.
I believe it was Rachel Hollis at her RISE event in 2019 that said, we are all “fat” with information.
When I’m not working with my bestie (Ann) on projects for PodiatryMeetings.com, I am knee-deep in work for my clients of Ten Toes Marketing Communications.  I love working with my tight-knit client base and creating awareness for their products and services for DPMs.
When I do get away from my desk, I am snuggling my pups, hanging out with my mom, or “causing trouble” with my friends in small-town Illinois.
