We gathered for our first mixer of 2020 at one of our FAVORITE Girl Boss coffee shops- CAVU Coffee in West Chester. Emily Schanie graciously hosted us yet again for a night of drinks, laughter, and amazing discussion with some incredible ladies. Emily served up some special seasonal drinks just in time for the most romantic time of the year- Valentine's Day! Or Galentine's Day <3 The rose sparkling lemonade at a big hit but my personal favorite was the rose latte!! Delish!
,After we had our drinks in hand and had time to chat and catch up with each other, we rounded up all the chairs in CAVU and sat down together to talk about our WHY. This month we are reading Finding Your Why by Simon Sinek. We touched on the overall theme of the book (which was discussed in greater detail at our book club meeting) But what we wanted to know from our members where three questions: What holds you back? What inspires you? What motivated you to start your business in the very beginning? Sitting around in a circle, each of us shared our stories, our answers and shared in the emotions behind each others stories. Some stories had us nodding and relating in a "oh we've been there" sense of camaraderie. Other stories had us putting ourselves in some one else's shoes, sharing in their joy and in their deepest sorrow. It was exhilarating to hear how differently we all were inspired to start our journey to the road of entrepreneurship. 15 different women from different backgrounds, of different ages and in different stages of life and yet- we share one heart full of passion for what we do. Our night ended with a "High Note" were we went around the circle one last time and shared something that went well for us that week, be it personal or in our business. We clapped for each share and celebrated each win; big or small! Seeing the connections created, the friendships forming and the excited smiles of the faces of our Girl Bosses as the left the space was priceless! We hope to see you at our next mixer in March!! <3
