Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending Ladies Who Brunch Atlanta “Royal Tea Affair” hosted by Dayira Jones and Bianca Rush at the prettiful Biltmore Hotel in Atlanta GA. The Royal. Tea Affair was an afternoon of inspiration, empowerment, and business.
The afternoon was celebrity filled featuring Kandi Burruss (Grammy Award Winning Artist, serial entrepreneur and Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), Cynthia Bailey (The Bailey Agency, supermodel and Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), Necole B. (entertainment blogger), Emily B. (celebrity wardrobe stylist, shoe designer and Vh1’s Love & Hip Hop New York) and Latasha Wright (celebrity makeup artist and cosmetic line creator). These pretty ladies took time out of their schedules to discuss business tips and answer questions from the hundreds of women entrepreneurs that attended the event.
Some nuggets I walked away with:
“Everything is not going to make you money. You have to try to see what will stick!” ~Kandi Burruss
“In business you want people to work with you who have goals and vision. You don’t want someone who is stagnant trying to help you reach your goals!” ~Cynthia Bailey
“I give ladies the opportunity to work with me who wouldn’t have the opportunity. I try to open doors to help others!” ~Necole Bitchie
“I am a consummate professional. I try my best to make my client feel that I am giving 100%” ~Emily B
“I worked hard at my grind. I volunteered to show people what I could do. I know that I can’t do everybody’s makeup so I don’t focus on competition. I do my very best and it shows!” ~Latasha Wright
As I sipped my tea and let my iPHONE take the notes I could not help but feel inspired. So many times as women we don’t push hard out of fear of failure, fear of offending, and/or fear of success. It’s nice to get advice from pretty ladies who are winning in life and in business.
The afternoon was one of true inspiration and MOTIVATION! Cheers to all of the ladies that I connected with and cheers to you who are reading this article. You can do it and you can do it in grandeur!
In addition to the brunch the pretty ladies donated over 100 pairs of shoes to the Ladies Who Brunch Atlanta community service partner and one of my favorite charities, 40 Girls and Some Shoes.
