Networking & Mastermind Meeting #3
Our third "Women Entrepreneurs" meeting was held Wednesday night, September 15th, at Bayou Bistro!
In attendance was: Erin , Amanda , Olivia , Elisabeth, Victoria, Cindy, and a new lady to join us, Meg!
Introduction for Meg!
~ Meg is a news reporter for KNOE, Channel 8. She is originally from Charlotte, N.C. (my dream destination to live!). After finishing college, she landed a job in Montgomery, AL where she then found a lead on a reporting position at KNOE here in Monroe.
Meg is part of an organization group for Young Professionals in the area. She describes this group as a social and networking group all in one. She is currently working on an event set for October 7th which will recognize the Top 20 Under 40 Professionals as selected by Delta Business.
We discussed our goals set from our last meeting (August 18).
~ Erin has been busy writing articles for her magazine, Panache. She plans to have her magazine in our hands October 10th! Be sure to look for her updated, classy magazine :)
She is also looking for any of the following for her Little Green Boutique & Salon: Nail technician, massage therapist, hair stylist. If you or someone you know would like to have their own space, contact me and I'll get you in touch with Erin!
~ Olivia has been working on removing old wallpaper, and painting! She still has a little bit to go, but hopes to have it completed by the Holidays! She's also recently joined Weight Watchers and hopes to shed a few pounds by our next meeting!
~ Elisabeth's desk is on its way to being organized! During tonight's meeting, she showed us pictures of her progress! She hopes to have it completed by our next meeting! She is also organizing a training program for new Take Shape for Life Coaches. She's also working on pushing up the volume of front line coaches, and wants to sponsor two of them :)
~ Victoria was "victorious" with her goals set for September! She found a new place to live and she's moved to Structural Awareness Center as the new Massage Therapist! She has also had at least one Scentsy party to help with her expenses for her Thailand trip!
She wants to decide on her treatments and rituals she would like to focus on in her Aesthetician Program.
~ Cindy has been listening to her affirmations before going to bed! She's also booking "new faces" for Mary Kay and continues to look for "new faces"! Should you be interested in purchasing Mary Kay and you don't have a local sales rep, contact me and I'll get you in touch with her. And, better yet, if you are looking for a way to earn extra cash and run your own business, she can help you with that as well.
She plans to hire Erin, who is a fashion consultant, to help her find her "Signature" style!
~ Amanda has created a jewelry portfolio for To-Be Brides looking for custom jewelry for their Big Day! This will allow them to browse through pieces previously made. She has also been very busy with her blog; posting 3-4 days a week! She wants to keep this up and gain more viewers and followers. She's also working hard on creating lots of jewelry as she has 3 shows coming up in October!
~ Meg has just joined us so she has her initial goals set...she hopes that the Young Professionals Event is very successful! She's working on getting in touch with people for the event.
*So, what drives women entrepreneurs? I found this little chart :) Do you fall in this category? If so, maybe it's time to do something about it!
Stay tuned for "minutes" from our October Meeting!
