I spent the weekend at a Plan Your 2017 Retreat and it reinforced a thought that I have believed in all along: the power of Women.
As we sat in a picturesque cottage in a little town called Kimberly just north of the GTA, we all had one major goal in mind – to make a plan for success in 2017. On day one, we were 4 women of different backgrounds, different professions and completely different goals. By the end of the weekend, we became 4 women with one goal – to help each other succeed.
Bringing women together to uplift and support each other is a game-changer. What did we learn this weekend?
- No matter how different we are, we have more in common than we think.
- Empowerment can be misinterpreted
- NO is a powerful word
- Emotional support is a necessity
- It’s OK to be selfish once in a while
Coming together with other women, in whatever format, can be beneficial to your business. Retreats, Mastermind Groups, Networking, Accountability Groups, Workshops or any form of “togetherness” is an important part of building your network. Having these support systems can help you achieve your business or personal goals.
