Hello all of you outrageously amazing, Powerful Women,

Last month's lunch n learn was Fantastic thanks to all of you who attended and to Bernadette Cipriani-Major, BBA, CMA with ABC&D Consultants. The acronym is the definition of her mission. Accountability, Business Coaching and Development is her focus when providing business consulting for both business and medical practices. who shared some awesome strategies to help us learn how to "Take Out the Trash" Bernadette’s presentation was not onlypurposeful but dynamic and fun. I don't know about you but I certainly took her advice and took out some trash :-) if you would like to connect with Bernadette, visit her website at

The December 13th Power Hour is another one you won't want to miss!

Please join us forJoanna Davis' Keynote topic "Vulnerability, an Asset for Service"

What are you running from?Face it; embrace it. Focus on the positive! What if... our vulnerability is our greatest strength...Gaining new perspectives on power Serving from a different strength! This will be an interactive presentation, complete with guided visualization for those who desire to play in the possibilities!

We will also do our “marketing moments” - a 45 second introduction. This month we will add an additional twist to the introductions...since the Christmas Season is upon us, and Dec. 20th is National Go Caroling Day, - let's share our favorite Christmas Carol! Just the name will do although if you get the hankering to sing a snippet from it, that's wonderful too:-) Should be lots of FUN and help us get to know each other a little more besides just what we do for work - if anything, it will help to get us in Christmas Spirit :-).

And just as important, we will dedicate time to networking - getting to know each other better so please arrive by 11:30 as we have a jam packed agenda.

We will spend the 1st 15 minutes networking, followed by introductions with a twist, then learning from Joanna, followed by referrals - "I know someone who is in need of..." (please think of someone you know that is in the market to buy something or is in need of a specific service and come prepared to share) and/or shout outs, upcoming events/special announcements (we will limit this to special events or fundraisers, no more than 60 seconds please & only 1 per person) and finally more networking. All of this and promise to have you out and on your way by 1:30 p.m. (or close to it :-)) -

Also, if any of you would like to stay a little later and participate in a Christmas Gift exchange, please bring a wrapped gift with a value of $10-$15 and we will do a Chinese gift exchange following the meeting.

Last but certainly not least, please bring a pair (or more) of new children's socks to support the sock drive that Tanner Eaves (15 year old) is doing.

Oh and did I mention DOOR PRIZES?? As always, we will have spectacular door prizes! If you would like to give a door prize for this Friday's event,  email me at [masked] today and let me know what it is and the value. In addition you can send me a one line blurb about your business and I will share it with the group before having the winner selected. This is a great way to advertise your business as you get multiple marketing mentions (at the event & follow up email)!

Last month's fabulous door prizes were provided by
