Every time we hold a CONFIDENCE Workshop a number of the women tell me in all the months leading up to the conference, Genie blessed them beyond belief.

Who is Genie?
Genie not only handles the bazillion different logistics that go into holding our workshops, but she seems to befriend each and every lady who registers! She remembers their stories, details about their life and in a phone call or email becomes their girlfriend forever. If there are crazy storms in the Midwest, she remembers that single lady in our CONFIDENCE Workshop who is living closest to the storms, and she emails her to check in and see if she is okay. How does she do it?!
On top of overseeing our CONFIDENCE Workshops, Genie also helps me with responding to emails. Every day, we receive the most wonderful, heartfelt emails from so many of you. If I’m not able to respond, Genie is there to email every single person back so you know your words have landed with us and are treasured and appreciated. So many people have responded with surprise, saying they never expected to hear back from anyone and then Genie surprised them with the sweetest response. That is our Genie!
A few years ago, I knew I needed someone to join our team who would help extend a virtual hug, word of encouragement, or even a simple “great job” to our growing community. So much of what Me Ra Koh Media is about is loving on you, cheer leading you, laughing with you, and recognizing the courageous steps you take (regardless of how small or big) toward your dreams. I started praying for someone who would help enrich the experience women have as they come into contact with us. It’s a tall order, and I had no idea how I’d find this person. But it’s amazing what happens when you voice your desires. Genie and I met at a women’s leadership conference in San Francisco through the Wisdom Connection. I fell in love with her and asked her to join our crazy team. She said yes, and the rest is history.
I love this wonderful wise and giving woman with all my heart. She represents me and what my heart’s mission is with such incredible integrity. She works with Brian to keep things moving forward, and she often checks in on me like an older sister looking out for her younger sister. I am so honored to have her on our team, as a part of this family.
In one sense, I don’t know what we’d do without her. But that sentence feels like it only acknowledges the work she does for us. It’s “how” Genie does the work. It’s the way Genie enriches our company. She makes our work, our mission, so much more rich and potent. She brings her whole self to the table. And that is the gift that I treasure beyond measure.
Genie, with June being your birthday month, I want to take a moment on the blog to honor and celebrate the wonderful, beautiful gift that you are to me and Brian. But from all the emails and workshop responses, you are clearly not just a gift to us but to countless women in this community. Thank you so much for being generous in spreading your “Genie magic” on all of us. We are all better people for it.
We love and adore you girl!
Me Ra and Brian
