Women's Council and Being Comfortable Talking about the Uncomfortable Topic of Race

These days are very difficult as we watch our fellow citizens respond with grief, anger, and protest to the death of George Floyd. It is another painful reminder that racism has no place in our society. Vibrant communities draw from and encourage diversity and freedom, something that the Women's Council has always stood for.

We are sure you are receiving many viewpoints on social media, but we ask that you invest the time to listen to the attached one-hour Zoom meeting with our very own iconic Women's Council thought leaders on the topic. The content is authentic, unscripted, raw, and provides viewpoints within our grassroots business leaders, sharing knowledge and experiences to promote understanding.

Note that the Women's Council intentionally opted out of writing corporate statements or participating in social media posts and instead wanted to have a conversation with our own leaders. At Women's Council, we share experiences… not just business, but personal experiences as well. Thank you in advance for watching this, and many thanks to our panel of participants who shared so openly and helped us begin this discussion that will be continued. We ask that you listen with an open mind and heart. Some of these topics are uncomfortable. Some are teaching moments. You may not agree with them all, but that’s OK. Our respect and admiration for each other in this organization transcends any opinions that we have. A journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step, and this will be the first of many conversations we'll have on important societal issues including race.

Finding the Right Support for Right Now

Thinking back on my journey as a small business owner, it is perfectly clear to me that the trainings I attended, courses I took, mastermind groups I joined, business friends I bounced ideas off of, and coaches I had, made a huge impact on my business. Even if you are the only person working your business right now, you should not be going it entirely alone. Support is necessary to grow your business effectively and thankfully, it comes in many different forms and price ranges.  

Summer Wellness & Your Local Farmers Market

Now that summer weather is in full swing in most parts of the country, it is a wonderful time to consider your local bounty at farmer’s markets and roadside stands. While big-name grocery stores give us the illusion that all types of fruits and veggies are plentiful year-round, the reality of how our food gets to our plate can be eye-opening for the average consumer.  The numerous benefits of buying local may surprise you!
