“It does not always look pretty. Doing the work requires work. This brunch was created for business minded women who are not afraid of taking risks, but may be a little exhausted since the start of 2019. We want you to know that you are not in business alone, call on your HER, your friend! It is important that we lift each other up together,“ said Daye.
Attendees left refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed with nuggets from speakers, Terisha Lee, Vivian Olodun, Ebene Natural Care Products, Shanika Ampuh and Suzette Speaks. The all female panel spoke about the importance of your purpose in your partnership, how to build trust back into your personal and professional relationships, setting intentions and having confidence in your decisions and in order to complete 2019 strong. They declared to event goers that they must discern, declare and decide.
