In the first two weeks of May, my husband and I traveled with a team from the nonprofit CoCo’s Foundation, which partners with the nonprofit Food 4 Africa organization to feed, clothe, and build shelter for families in South Africa.

During those two weeks, I observed many leadership lessons. Over the next 10 weeks I’ll share them with you and, as usual, give both you and myself a challenge.

I plan to form teams from my salon and schools to go back to Africa and build 5 more homes. Who wants to go with us? Message me if you do, and please include your email address. I’ll schedule a live conference call within the next few weeks, so stay tuned for an email about this.

In the meantime, check out the websites of Food 4 Africa (www.food4africa.org) and CoCo’s Foundation (www.cocosfoundation.co.uk).

Last but not least, please enjoy this video from our trip:
