This past Monday, my colleague Roni and I were guest speakers for the monthly Women Online Who (WOW) Network Alliance Mix and Mingle event at Sambuca’s Restaurant in Atlanta, GA. We spoke about investing while also networking with the guests within this powerful community of professional women. I found this dynamic group of lively women eager to learn and full of energy. We also had the opportunity to listen to great music by Maria Howell, a phenomenal singer and entrepreneur. I had known some members of the WOW Network through Twitter and Facebook but meeting each of them in person made our previous interactions that much better since I was finally able to put names and faces together. This is the magic held within the WOW Network… the ability to bring like-minded professionals together to share business and life experiences. Super amazing.

The weekend offered another opportunity for me to finally meet a couple of special women I have spent the past 2 years corresponding with via email & telephone. These women have grown to become trusted associates, friends, and mentors. I was greeted at the airport with a wonderful welcome by my coach, Kimyon Zari which within 2 hours was followed by my business mentor, De Harris.  You have to understand that I met these fabulous women only four days apart and to finally be able to give them a hug was precious, joyful and priceless. Just another moment within my life that will never be forgotten.  Roni & I were able to have lunch and dinner with these women and with De’s beautiful young children (who are very compassionate, mature, and loving young ladies) making every part of the day a treat.  Time passed by quickly as we shared stories, took pictures and enjoyed the day together.

Before you could blink an eye Monday arrived and we quickly moved into our role as featured speakers for the WOW Mix and Mingle. Roni was responsible for the main presentation and I had a 5 minute introduction to give.  I was a bit more than nervous since I have only made one presentation and that was in 2009 as an Arbonne representative in front of my networking group. Despite my own hesitation, I took a few deep breaths and continued to chat with the guests. Soon I began to relax and it was time to start my part of the presentation. (Scary but fun and I even managed to get a couple of jokes mixed in there. 😉 Once finished, I handed the reigns over to Roni, who is like my sister and has been my business associate for the past 28 years. Then everything came together as I listened to her share her vast knowledge of the stock market and looked around the room see the members of WOW and friends that mean so much… again touching my heart. Once we had completed our presentation I was finally able to fully relax and continued connecting with the fabulous women of the WOW Network.  We had a great evening. I enjoyed closing the night with new contacts, memorable friends and the knowledge I had thoroughly moved through my fear while experiencing a weekend that is never to be forgotten. Create an excellent day. ~Bonnie
