In WES Warriors
Well, this is awkward, its me.. I'm writing about me. I nominated and selected myself as a WES Warrior, well, because I created the group and the concept of the Warriors. It feels.... weird. So if you are thinking that as well, I'm with ya! But in reality, I am a warrior. I've seen many many battles in my life and I can guarantee I will see more. I am strong. I am powerful. And with the right light and support around me, I am fully confident I will be victorious. All of the women who show support to this group are my Warriors, and I can't tell you how important you are to me. You are the reason I continue. I also wanted to use this opportunity to promote the WES Warrior feature. It is meant to support members and to shine light on our achievements. I landed on the term 'Warrior' for particular reasons. In entrepreneurship, you have many hills to climb and caverns to navigate but the highest and most dangerous one is the journey within. All of the shortcomings and insecurities that you gracefully attempted to keep hidden will inevitably show up in the journey of entrepreneurship. That, is the real struggle. We can only go as far as we all our self go to and you learn your restrictions fast. It's important to sit with that and not run from it. Strengthen your weaknesses. Shine light on them, don't be insecure because we all have struggles.. .and know that everyone has their own battle. Join me in celebrating the struggles and the wins. If you have someone in mind or you would like to be featured as a WES Warrior, fill out the form here and let's talk! Thank you for everything.

A woman who had a personal influence on me... what can I even say about this force of an individual. I remember reading her books like, 'All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes' and 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sing's' and being enamored by her prose and perspective. She wrote about power and struggle, two things which she seemed to navigate with ultimate grace, in a way that felt like a soft bluesy jazz song. Her experience as a single mother raising a Black son in America, her struggle and sacrifice being a civil justice activist in Harlem, being an artist and a powerful woman. I was young when I started reading her work, early 20's, and she changed me and my mindset. She spoke, you listen... I certainly did. Her efforts are echoed in the changes we see today and those we are still working towards. Today, when the news broke that she has the honor of being the first Black woman to ever appear on a coin. Her striking likeness laid over a silhouette of a bird honoring one of her most famous poem and autobiography "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I love her. Her power and strength remind me of what we can all achieve. Her willingness to remain faithful to her artistry inspires me. She fought the external and internal battles and won. She is a warrior, I claim her as ours, a WES Warrior. Rest in Peace. Visit www.mayaangelou.com to buy her books and learn about her legacy❤️

I just came across this article or interview rather from the founder of Spanx, Sara Blakely on entrepreneur.com . It's a great read! She has some great points and insight Specifically I like her journal with 99 pages of business ideas. As creators... we never stop do we? I also love her point about knowing your weakness and not trying to spend time doing that. I hate invoicing and accounting so why should I spend time on that? I will never do it as well as someone who loves or specializes in that. As a creator in a start up you do need to an exceptional amount of things by yourself, but the most efficient and effective way is what Liz discusses, bring an expert in and stay in your lane! Excerpt: "Stay in your lane -- how so?  Like, wake up every day with What am I good at? What am I contributing to the world? I identified very early on what my contributions to Spanx should be: to invent, market, sell. So if I’m spending too much time sitting with lawyers or in finances, a little radar goes off. I ask, Why? Is it because I don’t have the right people or talent? So I encourage people to delegate and hire where you aren’t strong. And realize that the self-awareness of What are my strengths, and what are my weaknesses? comes when you are quiet with yourself and you’re listening, you’re paying attention. " Read more: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/322936
Hire your weaknesses, and stay in your lane.   content media

Candi joined us in June to speak about how to strategically network with purpose and 'find your tribe.' I thought she was fantastic! Very informative and concise as she discussed what she has learned and what worked for her. After being in the Norwalk area for less than a year she applied her practices and has been able to find her way and build her customer base here in CT. Please let Candi know what you thought or if you have any other questions for her!!!

What is wellness to you and how important is it to dedicate time establishing and nurturing it? Daily? Weekly? Monthly?... when everything and everyone else is taken care of?

I never really believed that you need to sacrifice healthy sleep for a successful career. Several studies have shown that sleep deprivation will cause more long term (and short term) negative health affects then getting the desired amount of sleep. But how, if we do not compromise sleep, do we get the most out of our day?? Interesting article about shadowing Elon Musk's daily schedule.... https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/312193 Comment below!!
