Carla Lane, CEO of Lane Staffing, hosted a “A Celebration of Inspiration and Resilience”. In attendance were, Mr. Dmars, Editor and Chief of D-Mars Business Journal, Jeff Boney CEO and founder of Texas Business Alliance, Lauren Williams, Editor of Womentality Magazine and others.
During this special occasion, a charm bracelet with a Palm Tree charm was presented to those she called “Palms”, for like the Palm Tree “they bend and never break” She ended the award presentation by telling a story about an Eagle who made to believe he was a chicken, and unable to fly like an Eagle but rather grounded like a chicken; until the Eagle became aware of his strength and ability to soar above the clouds, with the help of someone who knew he was an eagle and not a chicken. Ms. Lane’s analogy was referring to her husband, and he was presented with an eagle award, as he was that someone, who reminded her that she is an Eagle that can fly.
