I was honored to be able to attend the eWomen Success Summit on May 31 on behalf of Barbara Steckly and Preferred Client Services.
The Award-winning entrepreneur, Sandra Yancey, Founder & CEO of eWomenNetwork started us off with an introduction I have never seen before. With her iPhone in hand, Sandra took a short video clip with the room filled with Alberta Women applauding and cheering for her upcoming presentation. She then shared the clip with all her Facebook followers and encouraged us all to log in and share as well. Now that’s what I call utilizing Social Media to its best!
Sandra shared four key points that will lead Entrepreneur Women to achieve Success in business!
Here are a few points I was able to walk away with:
1. Mind Set
- Think BIGGER – “I was made for so much more”
2.Have a “Great Tribe”
- Attitude trumps Talent – “Break free from the people that hold you back”
- Give yourself permission to “Soar” with the Eagles
3. Stay Original
- Trust your zone of Genius
- Someone somewhere is waiting for what you have to offer
4. Get Going
- “Hit the Launch Button”
- Don’t get stuck in startup mode
My favorite moment was when Sandra quoted one of our very own Edmonton’s Heroes, Wayne Gretzky. When asked about his success as a professional athlete, Gretzky replied: “Everyone goes where the puck is; I go where the puck is going to be.” Don’t just stay in the zone with your business, take it to the next level and be ahead of the trends.
I encourage all women in business to seek out one of Sandra’s conferences. Her next International Conference and Business Expo will be held on August 4th-7th, 2016 in Dallas Texas. From what I’ve heard, it is the event of the year you don’t want to miss.
