If you haven't heard of The Lady Project, it's better that you get with the program! I tell you, this is the place to be. Aside awesome events catered to female and female-identifying only, they importantly connect, inspire and showcase women doing awesome things! Yesterday, I attended their Summer Bash and had the opportunity to re-charge my entrepreneurial self with the advice from three successful business women rockstars: Emily Doubilet--co-Founder of Susty Party, Brittany Lo--Founder of Beautini and Lesley Ware--Creator and Author of The Creative Cookie.
The theme of the event was 'Transformation' Something maybe many of us really don't sit and think about much because we might be really caught up with just life, but it really does play a role in our success mainly because we have to analyze ourselves, put into perspective our accomplishments and encourages us to plan ahead. I love the idea of looking back at myself years ago and see how, yes, I have transformed. Something to think about on your car/train ride back home. How have you transformed?
"It's Not Where You Start, It's About Where You End"
by Brittany Lo, Founder of Beautini, a hair and makeup artist that travels to you. She started her own all-natural cosmetics lines at the age of seventeen. One practice that leads her to maintaining success is on Monday, she lists three things to accomplish for that week and focuses on that and partially putting aside other objectives.
"Focus on The Process"
by Emily Doubilet, co-Founder of Susty Party, non-toxic biodegradable tableware made in North America and who uses Non-Profit factories that employ the blind. Her practice of taking time for your personal life, emotional health, a break when you feel it is needed and avoid burn-out is a way to keep balance. Emily does something called 'workcation', which allows her to travel to an off-site location, surf in the mornings and do work later in the day.
"Transformation Inspires People Around You"
by Lesley Ware, Creator and Author of The Creative Cookie, a 'jill of many trades' as she states and author of SEW FAB for young fashionistas. Her everyday and every week is different and her one armor of success is to have a supportive partner because he will be instrumental in your success and well-being.
