Raise your hand if your bracket is busted!  If you’ve followed me for long, you know I love this time of year.  I’m always strategic, do plenty of research, and typically have a pretty good bracket, but this year…not so much.  I literally did my bracket in 5 minutes at the Las Vegas airport when I was flying back from the Women’s Leadership Summit and man, it shows.  I was emotional with my picks (as a Missouri girl, I’ll be damned if I put KU in my Final 4) and I’ve already eaten a lot of crow in the flavor of Tennessee orange!

OK, enough about the Madness of March. Let’s meet two of the incredible women that I connected with in Vegas at the Women’s Leadership Summit!  You know those people who walk into the room and you just feel a connection?  The people that your energy matches and you just know you are going to like them?  That’s how I felt when I met Sam and Desaré. And the more I got to know them, I knew my gut was right with these two (even if my gut was way off on my March Madness picks)!

Sam Siders, Siders Insurance Solutions

“I have always been a dreamer, a visualizer – always looking to manifest my successes in life. I’ve wanted to own my own business since I was a child. I was recruited to the insurance industry when I was 23 years old and quickly achieved a successful career on the carrier and then GA side of our business. Last year, I not only started my own agency, but we crushed our client and revenue goals, becoming a top agency with many of our carrier and GA partners and receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from clients. But my biggest accomplishment has been watching my account manager succeed and flourish in a position that she loves and continues to grow in. My purpose for existing is to help others succeed. Being a part of Kendyl’s journey toward her success is one of my greatest achievements.”
