2 Ways to Make the Most of these LAST TWO WEEKS

If you read my last blog, this will look very familiar, but I thought it was worth repeating!

We still have time

The temperature is dropping (unfortunately for this warm season lady), and the seasons have changed again. I don’t know about you, but when I’m cold, it’s harder for me to get work done. I just want to bundle up in a blanket and watch a movie or read a book while sipping on something nice and warm.


With two weeks left in 2016, I can’t afford to bundle up and relax. The goals I set for this year that haven’t been met still need my attention. Even if I don’t accomplish them all, it won’t be because I got cold or because I got tired.

2 Key Ways to Make the Most of these Last 2 WEEKS
  1. Revisit the goals you set for 2016. Think back to January 1st when you said you were going to lose 20 pounds, go back to school,buy a house, or whatever. You’ve maybe been living month to month just doing what you need to do to get by. Take this opportunity to think about what you really wanted to get done in 2016.
  2. Focus on 1 of those goals. Which goal was the most important goal? Which one have you made some progress on? And which one constantly hurts you because you haven’t accomplished it, or which one could have the biggest impact on your life? Choose that one and get to work making it happen. Sit down and write out a plan to get as far as you possibly can on that goal before the year is up.

You still have time! Your 2017 self will thank you!

I’ll be providing tips on setting goals and implementing plans so stick with me IN 2017!
Oh, and if you’re like me and have a hard time working when you’re cold, you’ll want to grab one of these. It’ll keep you warm and motivated at the same time!



I’m Summer Owens, and my passion is helping youth and young adults realize success no matter what obstacles they face. As an international resilience and leadership keynote speaker, author, S.O. What! Success Coach, and creator of the S.O. What! Literacy, Life Skills, and Character Education curriculum, I empower people to say, “So what!” to even their greatest challenges.  provide a framework to help people see past their challenges and focus on solutions using the S.O. What! Success System (Overcome Obstacles + Eliminate Excuses + Calculate Choices = S.O. What! Success). Through keynotes, workshops, books, online courses, and workbooks, I use life’s challenges and my own story of resilience as a rape survivor and teen mom success story to help others confidently pursue their dreams.

Looking for an inspiring college motivational speaker? A high school literacy curriculum? A middle school life skills workbook? A great example for teen mothers? A women’s empowerment or single mother’s conference speaker?  I’m your girl and will help any audience say, “S.O. What!”.
