We are off and running into the first quarter of 2019, and boy has it been a fun one! Thanks to Valor Games Far West, the event for ill, injured, and wounded Veterans that I direct, and people getting the purge urge from Marie Kondo, it has been a whirlwind of a year to say the least. I have been fortunate enough to be part of the transformation of people's lives since my business launched in 2011. I love seeing the value that organizing adds to people's lives. When Valor Games Far West was introduced to me in 2013 as an Event Organizing opportunity, I was all in. I never knew how much the event, its Veterans, and committee would change my life. 7 years later and now its Director, I love the organizing puzzle that Valor Games Far West is. From managing the massive hotel room list, Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs, it's a second-full time job. The event is life-changing and life-saving for our ill, injured, and wounded Veterans, which is why I wanted to highlight it this month.
