Last Thursday I was flown to Sydney for a High Tea. It was such an incredible and inspiring experience. The women I met and networked with were some of Australia’s best.
This inspired me to move forward with my idea of our girls weekend away.
This is an idea that has sat in the back of my mind for quite some time. I was too scared/unsure if it would work.
What about the risk? Would anybody come? Would I fail?
However, attending this event last week where I networked and met innovators and leaders of Australia.
I realised that I had to move forward with this idea. I must make it real.
One of the reasons being is I think every I.M would benefit from networking, meeting, laughing, engaging with women like I did.
These women were leaders, they made their dreams come true. They didn’t sit back and watch others, they took the risk and they achieved.
I felt that other women should have access to these kind of circles. These kind of women who make you feel like you can do anything.
I arrived home in Cairns filled with ideas, motivation and inspiration.
The woman who took me to Sydney name is Valerie she is the owner/director of Inner B. She is someone that I have grown to admire and I think will really bring a lot to our community. She is an innovator and a do’er.
She is an amazing business woman, but not just that, she is a beautiful person. As I drove with her in her car.
I got to know her in a more relaxed way. I felt very comfortable and welcome in her space.
I am lucky enough to have the chance to work and have her mentor me into making my life and our community more organised and more efficiently run.
I have been approached by many many brands to work with or along side however, nothing “fit” nothing “felt” right.
During my time in Sydney we discussed the idea of ”The Imperfect Mum Girls Weekend Away” It is a project that I’m hoping to pull together (with the help of what I learn from val) Next October. Location Gold Coast.
I want us to do this together. I currently have a mortgage and I understand the logistics of trying to put away any money for “Me Time” I truly do. Some weeks I find it hard to make ends meet.
This is a project that will empower and bring us together.
I hear you already.. “BUT I can’t afford it”. Ok hear me out. Ask yourself this.. How much do I spend on coffee or lunches out etc.
Say it’s $20 a week. If you set up an account called “A better Me” this will get you there even if you have to fly from another city.
Do this, do it for you, and just plan it..
Now on the planning side of things I SUCK!! I admit it I SUCK. However as a gift to myself I am implementing some changes and Val will be helping me.
And I will be sharing them with you. I’m going to be more *cough* organised *cough* oh gosh.. I said it the evil word..
So I have publicly said it and know I have to follow through.. SHIT!!
