One might think that being the “Voice of God” would be a grueling and nearly impossible task. If a voice could carry with it some kind of expectation, you’ve got to bet that God’s has one of the highest. Fortunately, I am lucky enough to know first-hand that being the “Voice of God” isn’t at all as scary as it seems.
When I was approached by AGF Media Services to be the “Voice of God” for NAWBO’s Leadership & Legacy Awards Luncheon, I was thrilled. But then it occurred to me just how huge of an undertaking it might be. I quickly learned that, lucky for me, I had the coolest job ever! I got to sit backstage with the audio-visual guys, wearing a headset and microphone and wait for cue that said, “Ladies & Gentlemen, please welcome Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Chapter of NAWBO, Jane Pak,” all while getting the privilege to say I was the “Voice of God!”
The National Association of Women Business Owners, or NAWBO, represents more than 509,000 women-owned businesses in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana metropolitan area. The organization also employs more than 688,000 people, and generates more than $129 billion in annual revenues. The group held its 26th annual Leadership & Legacy Awards Luncheon on March 23, 2012 at the JW Marriot hotel. This year’s theme was “Inspiration Starts Here” and honored seven inspirational business leaders.
I feel so honored to not only have been given the opportunity to be the “Voice of God”, but to do it for such a powerful and motivational organization. I guess I always envisioned the God’s voice to be deeper than mine, but I’m so glad that AGF Media Services and NAWBO had my voice in mind. I’ll end this with some advice I learned from this job: if you’re waiting for God to speak to you…just give me a call, I’m not too expensive.
