When I joined the National Auctioneers Association, I went to "Google" to see if there were any faces that looked like mine. I wasn't surprised with the results of my search. It took some time, but I was able to find another Benefit Auctioneer who looked like me. Why did I do this? It's always to connect with people who have a "understanding" of what you are or will be experiencing.
Luckily for me, I met TiWanna Kenney. We connected instantly when we spoke over the phone. We discovered that we had similar ideas about the industry and the world. We actually got to meet an auction event and have developed a strong professional relationship.
So strong that we put together a presentation at the request of the National Auctioneers Association to discuss Diversity in the Industry and why it is important to embrace diversity in your business model. The presentation went over so well, Auctioneers Magazine wrote an article about it.
