His calendar resembles mine these days. Now, more than ever before, I’m 1000% committed to making my business a success. The funny thing is that I’m only following the coaching advice that I give my clients every day! My business is growing by leaps and bounds each month and I am giddy with anticipation about what the future holds.
Later this week, I’m attending a business conference. But not just ANY conference – Tory Johnson’s Spark & Hustle conference. First, let me tell you a little bit about Tory Johnson. You may recognize her as a television host and national news contributor for Good Morning America (serving as their Career Expert), or as a critically acclaimed author who recently released her fifth career book Fired to Hired, or perhaps as the founder & CEO of Women For Hire, the first and only company devoted to a comprehensive array of recruitment services for women. What you may not now is that Tory was fired (unceremoniously) from a job that she adored and ever since that moment, she has been completely devoted to helping women achieve career success. I have followed Tory for a long time. She is one of my mentors and I can’t wait to meet her in person.
This conference is RIGHT up my alley and completely in line with my business (and life philosophy) – empowering women to profit from their passion. But the REAL reason why I am so excited about this conference is because the conference speakers are down-to-earth, authentic, humble, and successful women business owners – all committed to opening the “black box” and sharing how they “did it”. Not to mention that many of them are from right here in Atlanta!!
Ladies like, Joyce Bone (@millionairemom) who took $10,000 and turned it into a $150M publicly traded company, Shameeka Shy Ayers (@brokesocialite) who had a hobby and turned it into a nationally recognized media empire by capitalizing on social media, Alyson Howard-Hoag (@authenticbeauty), beauty extraordinaire who shows women how to reveal their authentic selves, Laura Scholz (@laurascholz), the “social media maven” who had made it her mission to spotlight cool, “need to know” women-owned businesses and Taryn Pisaneschi (@tarynp), a networking wiz who can create an authentic connection with just about anyone. The full docket of speakers is too large to list here (just go here) but rest assured the agenda is chock-full of interesting sessions and really cool networking events (can you say private spa party AND an exclusive sampling of Atlanta’s best bakeries tailored just for us!!!).
I will be blogging throughout the conference, so if you are not able to make it to Atlanta, don’t worry. I have your back! I will report all of the tips, tricks, and sage advice delivered by all of the conference attendees – on and off the dais.
Until next time, Dream Big!!
