Booth 61 show #30 enjoyed the largest Live audience since we began this adventure last January. As I said in my introduction of Becky Blalock: “Everybody knows Becky, everyone respects Becky, and everyone loves Becky”. I am certain every person who listened to the show Live, walked away grateful to Becky for who she is, what she and done, and her willingness to share her incredible life story.
I hope you will listen to this interview and share it with others. Men will receive just as much as women will by listening to Becky’s success story. I only wish Becky had written this book 30 years ago. I could have been more proactive than I was at promoting, nurturing, and mentoring the women who have worked with me. I am wiser today because not only have I read DARE but I have watched Becky for the last 15 years up close and in person.
Becky’s accomplishments are too numerous to list but a few that I must share include: Becky was the first female CIO of The Southern Company. Becky is a former GCLA CIO of the year in 2003 and in 2011 received the Life Time Achievement Award. In 2011, Becky was also given the highest honor bestowed by Women in Technology, the Legacy Award. Becky has been very active in our community with United Way, Leadership Atlanta, Leadership Georgia, Emory Healthcare, and the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta just to name a few. Becky is a new author with the release of her book Dare. If you do not buy and read this book, I would love for you to send me a note to tell me why. This book will empower women and educate men on the importance of mentorship, sponsorship, and taking risks.
You may purchase and I do urge you to purchase DARE at Becky’s website: www.beckyblalock.com. If you read this book and apply the principles, it will change your life. You can also follow Becky on Facebook: at DARE and on Twitter:
