Remember your first real best friend? Now imagine a room full!

Our Networker for Business Women events are YOUR TIME. A time for YOU to make connections with like-minded business women. This is a pause in your month to meet with friends who care about your business …but most importantly care about YOU. You are not like everyone else out there. You are a woman – a mother, daughter, sister, wife, girlfriend, friend – whatever – of course. But you are more than that and we get that and we want you. Check out our events. We have an event on Feb 5th in Vero and then on Feb 12th in Port St. Lucie. I hope you can make...

Being Deliberate

Being Deliberate

It sure seems like so much slows down this time of year for Christmas. I do so hope you had some time off. As for me, last week we were pretty much closed but we’re back at it now. Yes, I’m already thinking of my goals for 2015. Besides the usual, I’m realizing that I need to be very deliberate with the time I invest. It’s not just about setting some specific goal and wishing for it to come true. This year I’m doing something different. I am actually setting appointments in my calendar to work on what I want to accomplish in the next few months and year. I know...

Can you get ahead without networking?

Can you get ahead without networking?

It’s an argument I hear from people daily and it goes something like this: “I don’t like big groups of people where I don’t know anyone.” “I don’t get along with other women.” “I don’t understand how networking works.” “I went to one event once and never got any business from it.” Here’s your wake up call. If you are coming to one of my events.  You know someone – you know me.  Yes, even if you and I have not met one another in person, all you have to do is pull me aside or call me before the event...

NTW-037 From Victim to Warrior with Amber Mauldin

http://traffic.libsyn.com/networkerforbusinesswomen/ntw_037_ambermauldin.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadThis is a very special episode of the Networker For Business Women Podcast.  There’s nothing explicit in the content but because of the sensitive nature, you may want to listen to it first before you allow your children to hear it. Amber is an online friend that I met through Twitter.  I spent a fair bit of time checking out her website and realized that her story is one that needs to be told again and again. In fact, in many ways, her story is “our” story....

The Journey Continues – Thoughts on the New Year

I love that “new year feeling.”  You know what I’m talking about.  It’s the feeling of promises not broken, dreams waiting to be fulfilled and a fresh, clean start.  Collectively we all seem to be tempted by the resolutions and a desire to finally make important changes in our lives. This year I am trying something a little different.  I am not sure where the idea originated but I’ve seen a lot of people choose a word, two words or three words around which they set their intentions for the year.  That is to say, instead of resolving to lose weight perhaps...
