Wanna Go Fishing?!?
I am really excited to share some amazing news with all of you.
I have been invited to be part of a 10 women faculty with Pepperidge Farms. I will be working on their new campaign called “Fishful Thinking”. This campaign is all about inspiring positive thinking and optimism in our children. Pepperidge Farms has teamed up with Dr. Karen Reivich an expert in Positive Psychology and have created an amazing website called FishfulThinking.com. This website is filled with activities, interactive tools and helpful tips for keeping kids smiling through the ups and downs of life.
They are flying me to New York on March 6. On Saturday March 7 I will attend a symposium with Dr. Reivich and Pepperidge Farms executives. Then hang back for a brainstorming and training session. I fly home on Sunday march 8, so it’s a quick trip but I am so excited to go to NY for the first time, especially for such an amazing opportunity.
GOOD news to those of you living in the White Plains, NY area. They have opened up seats for the symposium to the public free of charge. This is an incredible chance for you to learn new ways to inspire positive thinking and optimism in the children in your life. Space is limited. RSVP today at http://www.fishfulthinkingrsvp.com/
I feel honored to be one of 10 moms from across the country hired to participate in this fabulous program. It is very exciting to get in on the ground floor of this project. I am so excited to watch it grow and feel like this is a perfect fit for me since optimism and positive thinking is such a big part of the values based curriculum I develop. AND bonus because I have 2 of Dr. Reivich’s books; "The Resilience Factor" and "The Optimistic Child" (which I have used many times for research for parenting workshops I have presented), I KNOW this is a project that I feel 100% positive I can get behind and recommend to you.
