Women Crushin’ It
As we all know, the month of March is known as Women’s History Month in which women are highlighted for their contribution to events in history, art, athletics, business, government, philanthropy, humanities, science, education and contemporary society. We utilize this month to celebrate the achievements of all women internationally. As well as, continuing to fight to bridge the gap for equal rights in the workforce and gender discrimination. For me, this month was all about building and NETWORKING! Sometimes I think people underestimate the value of networking with individuals, especially those who are in industries that could be beneficial to you and your brand. The saying, “your network is your NET WORTH” is no cliché and definitely can make a huge difference when it comes to leveling up. We can really empower one another by simply taking the time to formulate these long-term relationships. This past Tuesday, I had the honor of attending a cocktail dinner curated by Trez Art And Wine Bar; a new local art & wine bistro here in the Houston Heights area. The event was dedicated to highlighting the female trailblazers in the Spirits industry within the community. These women are an example of what it means to break barriers and beat the odds. It was inspiring to be surrounded by leading women in this industry and on top of that…they were all MINORITIES! As we conclude the month of March, it is my hope that we will continue to set the tone and maintain the standard of women empowerment no matter what industry we’re in. Remember, the force is FEMALE.
