I had the opportunity to meet Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour at a meeting of the Virginia Chapter of the National Speakers Association. She is called FlyGirl for a reason. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Vernice flew above the deserts of Iraq in her missile-equipped attack helicopter, engaging the enemy and scouting the roads from her cockpit, making sure they were safe for her fellow Marines and soldiers on the ground. She has completed two combat tours of duty in the Gulf and was recognized as America’s first African-American female combat pilot by the Department of Defense.
She is the author of Zero to Breakthrough: The 7-Step, Battle-Tested Method for Accomplishing Goals that Matter. Her message? Watch here. Determine what you really want and what you are willing to do to get it. What’s your flight plan? Where are you? Where do you want to be? A few big questions for the middle of summer. So grab a cool drink, consider your responses, and implement your plan!
