Last Thursday morning, we packed the Greenwood Sip and Ship with over 50 brilliant businesswomen and entrepreneurs to exchange advice, successes, and lessons learned.
Our fearless Sip and Ship leader Diana, and highly respected founder of CoCreate Work La’Kita Williams joined forces to open a dialogue on cultivating a successful small business.
Diana shared that there is never a perfect time to start your dream so don’t put it off another minute- just begin! She acknowledged that building a business, a team, and a community is awkward, uncomfortable, and full of unknowns. And while it may feel isolating at times, you are never alone.
La’Kita reminded us of the power behind embracing the reset. Practicing the pause, being able to reassess, and taking an intentional step forward helps us effectively and intentionally tackle challenges as they arise. Our ability to begin again is a superpower, not a weakness.
Gathering this group of local business women was a privilege that felt so important and meaningful to us. You now have the resources and support of over 50 local entrepreneurs in your corner!
One of our attendees, Megan Edwards, Founder of Salon Ritual writes,
"I am so grateful. Talking about business with other women, who have completely different businesses, offers a more dynamic perspective and surprising moments of, wow, I can relate! have conversations about color and personal presentation in my workplace. I can shop-talk about customer service and daily engagement with the community. I love that these conversations bring me creative and adaptive business ideas."
To each and every one of our lovely guests, thank you for connecting with us over coffee and conversation. It’s women like you who inspire us every day to dream bigger, work harder, and achieve our goals.
