tonight something happened for the first time in my life.
I was given an award for a bness group I’m in. BNESS? Really? I NEVER would have thought.. who knew?
I’m beyond touched&grateful.
In fact, so much so that I cant really remember what its for… After the founder of the group & one of my mentors, Frederique, called out my name- my mind went blank & I forgot why I was even getting it. I know it had something to do with connecting with group members, collaborating, sharing and supporting- which I think is kinda what I’m here on this earth to do.
So for me, it’s not really about business it’s about being who I am. Authentically living & acting in a way that supports my own life, growth and path. I LOVE to share, help, teach work with others and promote things I believe in.
So, getting an award was pretty cool. I mean, I was ALWAYS last when we ran the mile in school, on JV sports for too many years, 2nd chair in Oboe CT Orchestra, and generally an average kiddo and adult. Which was okay with me.
But getting the award was so meaningful to me b/c heres the thing.
I LOVE this group. I have met smart, dedicated women working tirelessly to do amazing things with their bness, to grow to learn and support one another .I have gained SO much from them. I am excited for our monthly meetings& time together – inspiring! I always leave with a lifted hearted and a big smile. Ideas, questions and that deep feeling of connection. It fills my heart! I get so much out of HER Corner.
Last year, I was in a rough spot for lil omm. I did not know what I wanted to do with it- where to take it- how to grow it and who I needed to help. I just was in unknown territory. I said to my hubby “I need a women’s bness group to help me. I want to be accountable and share ideas.. what should I do??”
Not even a week later, Fred postes on the Glover Park listserve ” Women’s bness group starting in Glover Park! This is for ladies who want to grow and have support and share ideas and be held accountable” WOWOW! I called and emailed her with JOY- Enthusiastic YES! YES!
And the rest is history.. .new friends and colleagues, smiles, ideas, highs and lows, balancing time, family, money & priorities . In it together.
More than I dreamed it would be.
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” – Brene Brown
