About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

HOLY ANOMALY! Why I'm used to the statement, "Wow! I've never seen that before!"

Anne-Marie Daggett

the marketing dept


I am a single mother of two daughters. One in middle school and one in elementary. I own my own business and have for about 7 years. I do everything in the business including janitor, Creative Director and CEO as I"M IT! I am on two boards that I love and love my community and my friends. Twirling plates in the air is a challenge and I love challenges. I also love to run but my years of figure skating with abuse to my back has put a halt on the distance running. Again, a challenge is in front of me. I am altering my activities. All good!

I don't like getting up in front of people but this is a challenge and a way to grow. :-)

My life seems to be full of these statements, "Wow, I've never seen that before." "Hmmmm, I've never heard of that before." "Hang on, I need to look into that as that's a new one to me." This ranges from phone issues (APPLE, SERIOUSLY?), computer issues, check out stands, kids illnesses, garden situations, car problems, relationships, whatever, you name it.

I figure I'm on this planet to teach people. They learn a lot dealing with me. I am here to learn patience with the fact that my situations seem to be out of the ordinary, small to big. It's all in the attitude is a lifestyle for me . . . laugh at it and breathe. I've had some amazing conversations with these situations. :-)
