Week 24 is a big deal. COMMENCEMENT!
These heroes made it! Six months of exercises, readings, webinars, Zoom calls, Marco Polos – they have pushed through personal and/or professional obstacles in order to cross the finish line and COMMENCE with their new lives!
Alejandro Gonzalez Lopez
I’m excited for each and every one – and can’t wait to see what’s next for them!
Alejandro was building his on-line biz and faced many challenges this year – including meeting black Friday deadlines and his computer being dead. Silly technology! All of his blog posts were very though-provoking, and he contributed significantly to the zooms in which he participated!
Adi was in charge of the “youth point of view” in our zoom calls and I loved seeing her crush her SMART goals! Her art work is amazing, and she ran into three other artists in our tribe. I’m hoping they will stick together in a mastermind following commencement!
Kathy is one busy mom – teens at home, a consignment business to run, and pickleball whenever she could fit a game into her schedule. But she stuck with it!! Even when she found herself behind, she grabbed hold of herself and decided her future was very bright with the study of the Master Keys, so she persevered! So proud of her!
I have a couple of guys who are not on facebook, so I couldn’t go grab a pic – but the Golden Retriever perfectly depicts John. He was always faithful, always encouraging, always up-to-date, and never missed an opportunity to contribute to our tribe through MarcoPolo and Zooms. John conquered some self-doubt issued this year, and we are all so happy to see what’s next!
Laura came to me, as did Kathy and Michael, through a staff snafu in November. Laura didn’t let the unfamiliar guide and tribe slow her down – NO! She jumped right in on MarcoPolo and on our tribe zooms! Like John, Adi, and Michael, she never missed one blog deadline, and I was always grateful for her insight and contributions – thanks, Laura!
I chose this image of a Basenji, because they are very loyal, but very quiet. That’s exactly what I found in Michael this year. He was faithful to the class, never missing a blog, and I was happy to read, week after week, the breakthroughs and insight he gained this year through the MKE. I know his future is bright because of his dedication to the class.
Like all of the tribe, Sara had life to deal with this year. She had a few personal challenges in the midst of raising two small, precious boys. And then she started a new business! I know Sara is going to meet and surpass all the goals she sets, and as she learned this year, sometimes you have to shift, but you never give up!
Val was pure delight to have in the tribe this year. As with others, she was always encouraging, always inspiring, and had much to contribute to our Polos and Zooms. She had an accident which slowed down her blogging just a bit, but even with combining that with family responsibilities, she finished strong!
I am so very proud of each and every member of my tribe this year! I wish you all continued growth, continued success, and I do hope we will stay in touch. I want to be able to hear about all those SMART goals you’re crushing every week!
I admire each an every one of you!
Thank you so much, Nancy, for guiding us through our journey! You are the best!!!

Grateful for you, Adi! Thank you so much!
Nancy, thank you for the kind words and all of your help and support! You’re an inspiring person, I’m so happy that I got to know you through MKE and look forward to staying in contact as friends. It’s also been incredible to interact with our tribe members and hear of their challenges and accomplishments through Marco Polo’s, Zooms, and blogs. Hopefully, we can stay connected through Marco Polo and possibly Zooms and share our progress/offer each other support. I’ve decided to continue on as a lifetime member so I’ll hopefully see all of you in the Alliances too! Best wishes to each and every one of you… and Happy Commencement!
Nancy Ottinger says
So glad that you will be continuing, Laura! Thanks for the kind words!
Kathy Isett says
Thank you for always inspiring and believing for each and every one of us! This has been a very challenging course and I’d like to go back and jog thru some of, or all of the chapters that I had to sprint through so I might absorb even more! Also, want to take the time to get to know the artistic tribe members through the mastermind! Godspeed and blessings and…ONWARD!
