Connect with creative, savvy, successful entrepreneurs at this month's CRAVE Business Chat. We know that being an entrepreneur means you've said "YES" to something you're passionate about and in spite of everything (and often of everyone...the nay-sayers that is) we trusted what was calling us, we listened to the creative tapping on our shoulders and we responded to the whisper of                  "what if?" And finally...we took the leap. 

"Welcome...your in good company and we're so happy you're here!" 

About this Chat ~ 

At this month's CRAVE Business Chat, we are talking about "The Balancing Act of the Entrepreneur" (and maybe asking..."does it even exist?). Danielle LaPorte says, in "The Fire Starter Sessions" that 'Passion is the Plotline' (and I agree whole heartedly!) She goes on to say, "It’s not the imbalances of life that will get you down — it’s doing meaningless things that aren’t taking you where you want to go." And just how does the 'screw-life-balance-and-go-for-passion' really apply? She reminds us that "we are not aiming for perfection and evenly sliced pieces of the life pie. We're creating satisfaction." I say "Hallelujah!" 

So whether you're an entrepreneur or working on becoming one...this Business CHAT is for you! Whether you're juggling business with family or your passion with being practical...we know it can feel like a 3-ring circus and like 'overwhelm' is just around the corner. So let's get it all out in the open and talk about it. From time management to list making and from efficiency to organization (or the lack of) you're invited to join us and embrace exactly where you are and get really honest about what you want...and remember, it's often awkward before it's graceful and creating a business or a work of art is not about perfection...that does NOT exist. But don't stress...just do the best you can and make passion a priority.

Join us and hear some amazing women talk about what 'the balancing act' (or un-balancing act) really means to them + how they keep it all together (or don't) and what's it like to be in the middle of creating a business and life they love.

I adore you and know this...YOU MATTER!

I hope to see you soon and I'm sending you every good wish and my most genuine thanks!
