The Panel of Female Entreprenuers
Terry Prone, writer, businesswoman and communicator extraordinaire, was our wonderful and entertaining after-dinner speaker. This lady advocated not doing things that bring you down, take up too much time, or that you’re no good at. Her alternative is to JUST BUY IT. One does not have to do everything. My kind of hero.
I must admit my eyes slightly watered (and I gasped) when she mentioned her morning rising hour of 4am. Something had to give, and that was her social life., Oh the choices…
I recalled the elastic band trick I once heard when she suggesting snapping this band each time a negative thought creeps in. Other strong suggestions were. Don’t just lean in, but to stand up.
Never to state the words, “I just want to say/I feel/ I believe / I think” Be affirmative ladies. We need to turn down the volume on negative thinking which is more prominent in women than men.Terry was given a Standing Ovulation before, but this time we ladies gave her a Standing Ovation.
A great evening with admirable people amongst many with a hunger for success and a thirst for knowledge. Looking forward to next year’s one already.
