November is a big month for me. My oldest turns nineteen (how that can be when I’m only twenty-nine, I don’t know), and I’ve been invited to be the guest speaker at the Middleburg Women Networking Luncheon on November 17th. I’m sure you don’t want to come to my kid’s party and play Madden 2011 and watch a special screening of Jackass 3D, but I definitely think you should join me for lunch. Rumor has it the Briar Patch Bed & Breakfast Inn is lovely, the food and wine are wonderful, and the guest speaker has promised to be sufficiently sleep-deprived so she doesn’t tawk at the speed of sound. For complete details and to register, visit Middleburg Women. Hope to see you next month!
Susan McCorkindale is a motivational TEDx Speaker, author of two amazon bestselling memoirs, and host of the online series, “Flaws Are the New Black.”
Her first book, Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl, chronicles her move – with her husband and two sons – from suburban New Jersey to a 500-acre beef cattle farm in the wilds of Virginia. Her follow-up, 500 Acres and No Place to Hide: More Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl, is both heartbreaking and side-splittingly funny as our favorite fake farm girl navigates her husband’s very real cancer diagnosis.
A popular keynote speaker known for her high-energy, humorous, and captivating presentations, Susan speaks frequently on the topics of resilience, grief, and the role of humor in helping people bounce back and stay back.
