Lots of lovely ladies doing BIG Things in the world!
I recently attended the Women’s Enterprise Canada: Meeting of the Minds Launch event, lead by the amazing Lisa Small of WE at the stunning Four-Diamond Award Winning Watermark Lounge: Radisson Hotel Admiral-Harbourfront. The Meeting of the Minds Meeting is about problem solving issues in your business. This isn’t one of those long boring meetings where they give you all that generic advice on what you “should” do in order to succeed. This meeting is the REAL DEAL, straight goods.
I met so many amazing women that are doing BIG things right now! I feel so proud to see women who have taken control in what society likes to call a “man’s world”. As a young entrepreneur it was encouraging to see that so many other women have done it, and it definitely gave me a HUGE boost of confidence. This meeting furthered my belief that if you have a dream, all you have to do is get up and MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Some of the meeting points:
Get an Assistant
Set Monthly Action Schedule
Connecting with Resources
“We need to invest in each others’ businesses to thrive“– Lisa Small
“Separate your personal from your business advancements. Calls between 9am-5pm are for business only”– Lisa Small
“You need to have ENERGY! Have the goal to keep your kingdom going!“– Lisa Small
“In business you need alliances…”– Lisa Small
This meeting was so informative, and extremely refreshing. Lisa has tonnes of passion when she speaks, and this is the same passion we ALL need to apply when talking about our businesses. We need to believe in what we’re saying in order for the others to do the same.
Starting July and each month after that, 25 business women will be invited to a special Meeting of the Minds at the Radisson Hotel. The closed door boardroom meeting holds the secrets to success! The women lucky enough to walk through these doors will not only strengthen their businesses, but will also be up for a vote to receive a W.E.Can Cheque: which is an investment made by the contributors of the group and additional amounts received from the entry fees. The names and business of these women will automatically be nominated for the Women’s Enterprise CANADA Business Awards at the upcoming Women’s Enterprise Conference in 2010.
July Meeting Reservation Fees are:
$50 per month early bird July 16th
$75 until registration closes on July 26th
This will be a closed meeting NO DOOR Registration.
New business owners must sumbit Executive Summaries before the 5th of the month they attend.
So ladies, it’s time to put the cattiness aside, and unite. THERE IS MONEY TO BE MADE, AND IT’S OURS TO GET!
