Those of you who read this blog regularly or who get my monthly life coaching newsletter are well aware by now of the story of my formerly homeless client, Mirna Zapata, who competed in the USA World Showcase in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend. After winning a first-place trophy in the Solo Female Potential Performer category at the competition, she was eligible to win the grand prize, which is based on online voting.

Well, try as she might, she placed in the top 60, but then didn’t clear the top 40 this week, so she is officially out of the competition. On behalf of Mirna, I wholeheartedly thank all who voted for her. What a run she had.

Today we had a fabulous session, one where we extracted the lessons learned from this experience and where we laid out a plan as Mirna moves forward. This is a multi-talented and creative woman and I am so excited to be along on her journey.

Again, thank you all for enriching her life with your support.
