Everything You Need to Know.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration Disney on the Road event in Washington, DC. This one day conference brought together social media moms from around the DC Metro area to experience a little Disney magic while hearing from women entrepreneurs. While the entire event was fantastic, the highlight for me was hearing from Jennifer Labit, founder of the global brand Cotton Babies and mother of four. A recent recipient of an MBA, Jennifer could have spent her time running through the basic tenets of business administration or highlighting the key takeaways from her coursework. Instead she imparted to the group a series of business truths, gleamed from years of building an incredibly successful business from a $100 investment, all while balancing work and family. Her presentation was refreshing – both insightful and inspiring. Some of my favorite moments include…
For the last five years I’ve heard from well-meaning friends, most of them male, who have tried to redefine success for my business and my life. If only I would build, grow, expand, sell, outsource, pitch – work harder, bigger, stronger… It was incredible to hear a remarkably successful – by any definition – businesswoman empower a ballroom full of female entrepreneurs to create their own definition of success and present an open ended description of what it means to have an exit plan. Success for me will always mean creating financial stability for my family while truly enjoying life – including plenty of time focused on my family and not my business. I walked away from Disney on the Road with a renewed belief that running a small and consistent business within an otherwise full and blessed life means that I am a successful businesswoman. Sometimes being reminded to trust yourself is the most valuable advice of all.
