I have spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks with a lot of inspiring women. Part of being an entrepreneur is learning and I took two days last week to do just that, and I loved it. I enjoyed the time spent with like minded women (and a couple of men too) who were all working on a strategy to grow our businesses.
Looking ahead two, three, even five years is exciting and fun to think about but it is a bit scary too! I wonder, will I be able to do the work, come up with a plan to bring my message and my scarves to those women who need to have me in their lives? The answer to that is a resounding YES!
But it is a process, one step at a time. Sometimes it is a small step, sometimes a big step, just keep moving forward.
The other event I attended was something new in our city, Women Talk Ottawa. Again this was an emotional and inspiring evening spent with some amazing women. Women Talk is an organization that was started to enable women to tell their stories. It was founded in Calgary by Bridgette Lessard-Deyell, and brought to Ottawa by Lara Wellman, of The Biz Studio.
We all have a story and sharing them helps other women. We learn something new, we realize we are not alone, we also see how strong we are when we come together, support and build each other up.
One thing that became clear to me while working on my business was that I want to help women. Helping can show up in different ways, such as providing a product that will enhance their lives with beauty, my scarves. Another way help can show up is in my Wanderlust Scarves Travel adventures. If you have a dream to see the world but don't want to do it alone or need a bit of guidance, or REALLY hate organizing and planning, my WST trips are for you!
I cannot describe the joy I feel when I share a new place with a first time traveller, or when I am surrounded by beautiful scarves and know I am going to surprise and delight you with them. I have such a passion for my scarves and for travel that I cannot wait to grow and share this dream with you. The first WST adventure is 50% sold out and I am currently looking at flights.
