What I learned while attending a Women’s Business Conference

Attending #Nawbowbc with 11 women business owners from Charlotte was a great opportunity to get a better understanding of what drives entrepreneurs to achieve success. We traveled to Spokane, WA where over 400 women gathered to learn, network, get inspired, and support others in their business journey.

The positive energy everyone brought to this event to provide a great atmosphere may be to some extent unique to this particular group of women business owners but at the same time it was exactly what was needed for it to be successful and meaningful.

Author Elizabeth Gilbert’s question “what are you willing to give up to have the life you’re pretending to want?” was thought provoking just like her statement that the “most relaxed person in the room holds All the power”  and then came Shabnam Mogharabi of @SoulPancake to talk about purpose, risk and most of all Joy. “life is messy and difficult, but you can be Joyful along the way.” that was the message that resonated the most to me.

If we bring Joy and feel Relaxed when we walk into our place of business, or a meeting, or our home then we can experience a far more positive and successful outcome than we could ever imagine.

When was the last time you gave yourself the opportunity to truly be in the moment and be joyful?
