The next time you are at a networking event, look at your conversation partner’s feet. It will tell you their level of engagement

This Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the most important relationship–the one with yourself

Time for you

Time for you

While Valentine’s Day celebrates romantic relationships, we partner with Omega to create a day that celebrates the most important relationship of all: the one with yourself.

In the above #Trailblazers video, DJ Shilpa talks about the day that she told her mother she was quitting her accounting job to become a DJ. While there are many different relationships in our lives, she is testament to the fact that the most important relationship we have to honor is—-

The one you with yourself.

February 12th, we are at OMEGA Boutique on Fifth Avenue to make TIME FOR YOU. Candice Georgis, private yoga coach to executive women and celebrities, will be our guest workshop coach.  She will lead us through exercises to help us get better in touch with our inner dialogue. She will also leave you with self-care tools to activate around long after you have left the room.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY DINNER HOUSTON

JAN 10TH VIRTUAL
If you are an entrepreneur, founder, marketing professional, content creator, influencer, leader, managers or mentor, you need this virtual workshop. Today’s teenagers and young 20- somethings are tomorrow’s biggest consumers. How do you engage, mentor, and manage Gen Z?

Carolyn Montrose Dub, founder of the Industrious Agency leads this valuable LadyDrinks module January 10th at noon. She works with brands to develop marketing campaigns that resonate with Gen Z.

If you are in a leadership role at a company or a founder, you need vision. But more than that, you need influence. Influence to get investors. Influence to get clients. Influence to hire great employees.

As part of our leadership programming series in 2020, LadyDrinks hosts this compelling workshop with Gino Perrotte, Founder and Strategist, Right Brain Journeys on the “Art of Influence,” and the six principles of persuasion.

Because I’m after creating unique and wonderful networking experiences, we are hosting this in the private board room of the new Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Meatpacking. I chose a brand synonymous with ‘influence’ and I doubt anyone would argue with the influence Starbucks has on us today. Afterwards, we get a private tour of the Roastery and some special gifts!

The power of vision boards and masterminds as you set goals for 2020

The Power of Vision boards

and Masterminds

With the new year comes new goals. We talk about the power of the mastermind, the monthly LadyDrinks goal setting calls, vision boards

As the new year kicks off, I’m sharing a new LadyDrinks resource that I have been beta testing for the last year: monthly goal setting calls for registered members. Napoleon Hill, author of ““Think and Grow Rich” famously called it a mastermind.

Hill described the Mastermind principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

The Mastermind concept was inspired by Hill’s many conversations with the highly successful businessman, Andrew Carnegie, who attributed his entire fortune and success to his Mastermind group.

The next LadyDrinks goal setting call for members is 4pm January 3rd.

I’m also creating a vision board of my goals for 2020 and planning to share that with my book club. The purpose of a vision board is to realize everything on it: relationships, career and finances, home, travel, personal growth

While there is initial intention and energy spent in making the board and placing it in a spot I see every day, the real key is the **consistency** in visualizing everything as if it already is.

I thought about my values. Read below to see what I came up with with a view to inspire you to write yours.

MY VISION BOARD GOALS

Come January 24th, I’m in Houston with these fine ladies to host the first of four International Women’s Day Dinners bringing powerful women together in a room to become allies and resources for one another. Thank you to Arun Karur of Pinnacle Capital for generously making this dinner happen.

I’m finally doing it.

The most common question I get asked by women is “How can I be a better public speaker?”  It’s usually paired with (like you) I’ve done one on one coaching with women. But come January, I’m formalizing it a bit by offering a 6 week masterclass on the subject.

I’ve cut my teeth as a business anchor reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I had a series of screens around on the trading floor that informed me where the Dow, Nasdaq, oil and gold stood and a series of bullet points scratched on a piece of paper about the stocks I needed to talk about. I had to fashion all of this into a 2 or 3 minute cogent and compelling story for the airwaves, with usually with a commercial break to put it together. This experience has trained me to work fast and design a class to give you immediate results.

If you are single this holiday, I summate some good counsel from the founder of Spanx Sarah Blakely

Become the CEO

Your mother always wanted you to marry

For anyone who is single this holiday, Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx shapewear, shares some good counsel.

If you are single, the holidays and family get togethers can be a bear. I love these words from Sarah Blakely, the founder of Spanx, who encourages women to flip the paradigm. Afterwards, I share some great language you can keep in your holster and deploy in real time this holiday.

“Be the CEO your parents always wanted you to marry! As you head home for the holidays this week… a lot of you will be asked THAT question, you know, the one you hear every year, (the one I heard for almost two decades): “SO, when are you getting married?” Cue the blank stares and awkward silences. 😂 There has always been a huge amount of pressure, especially on women, to get married… and to marry someone successful.

I didn’t get married until I was 37. I remember going out to eat alone A LOT in my 20s and 30s and getting looks from people who felt sorry for me. Well-meaning women used to say to me, “it’s ok honey… you’ll meet a nice man someday…” It was rare that anyone ever encouraged me to stand on my own two feet and to have dreams for myself. I saw the limited options my mother and grandmothers had and it fueled my fire to be the CEO of my own life instead of searching for a husband.

I eventually did get married to the best hubby Jesse Itzler but it was after I started Spanx, built a global brand and became a CEO.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Video Marketing

What’s your ROI and why should you do it?

Our centerpiece January event focuses on how to leverage video for your business. Plus, your year-end financial checklist for your small business.

Research shows that video is becoming THE way that consumers are choosing to ingest their information.

  • Marketing emails WITH VIDEO increase click-throughs by 200-300% (Forbes)
  • Landing pages WITH EMBEDDED VIDEO increase conversation rates by 80% (HubSpot)
  • If a website HAS VIDEO, people spend 88% more time on it (Oberlo)

Videos allow you to up the time spent by visitors to your website. You’re 53 times more likely show up first on Google if you have a video embedded on your website. It also prolongs engagement in a newsletter. As we head into the holidays, I’m experiementing with this video.

While good content is still king, video is the future. January 28th, 2020, Luminary hosts and I engage the CEO of Vimeo Anjali Sud on how to leverage and harness video for YOUR business.

Let’s face it. Poring over your business numbers isn’t a sexy activity. I think of that line from “When Harry Met Sally” as Harry is quizzing Meg Ryan’s character about her exploits with Sheldon. Harry chides her that a man named Sheldon will do your income taxes. He may even do your root canal. But a man with that banal of a name couldn’t possibly be an exciting suitor.

Well our expert today on income taxes and financials isn’t named Sheldon and as you can see by the photo above—is not banal at all. In fact, as 2019 draws to a close, Yahaira Krahmer, founder of Account.Her shares her financial to-do’s for small business owners to tackle before 2020 arrives:

What is your relationship with money? What is your children’s knowledge of household finances? LadyDrinks hosts a special mother-daughter event February 22nd.

Saturday, February 22nd, LadyDrinks member Sunaina Mehra of Francis Financial leads us in a “Money Circle,” a conversation circle where we get curious about our story around money. As women, we have a knack for connecting. When we come together to connect around something as powerful and complex as money and our children, we’re capable of making profound changes. With this exercise, we engage our daughters in the conversation about money too.

This event is generously hosted at the home of Bhavna NIgam, Founder of Bhavna’s Exclusive.

Shital Patel, Star of the Bravo TV Show

Meet Shital Patel. She achieved alot professionally. Frustrated that she couldn’t get the attention of her family, she goes undercover as a man.

Shital was raised in an Indian immigrant family. No matter what she accomplished, it was never enough. She went on the Bravo TV show “In a Man’s World” where Shital became “Raj.”  She was trained to walk like a man. She had a plaster cast made of her head to transform her into a male version of herself. And then came her birthday day. She arrived at the dinner and her father barely engaged her. But when “Raj” sat down across from hi,, posing as a cousin, her father told ‘him’ his dreams and aspirations for his life. The show concludes with her father admitting, he wasn’t raised with the skills to engage his daughter in conversation. But it’s something he aims to change.

This year, Farah Khan, Principal and Creative Director at House9Design in Montreal, interviewed me for her podcast, the House9’s Art & Humanity Podcast. Her company created this as a listening and learning tool for the business. Now we flip the spotlight and I interview her as a LadyDrinks Member.

READ THE MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

After business school at Wharton, Mona Bijoor held several positions in the fashion industry. When she became senior buyer at Ann Taylor, she saw the pain points wholesale sellers faced. As retailers like her employer curated apparel to sell for the upcoming season, the process was still done with old fashioned pen and paper. What if she created a marketplace online where wholesalers could upload their look books, retailers could review the collections, and purchase select apparel at wholesale prices?

JOOR was born in 2010.

By 2016, the company was processing over $10 billion in gross merchandise. Clients included Neiman Marcus, Harrods, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade.  Today, Mona has written a book called Startups and Downs, The Secrets of Resilient Entrepreneurs. She interviewed over 50 entrepreneurs and tackles topics such as negotiating with VC’s and ‘What’s the best sales strategy?’ Notes from last week’s talk here

Wednesday January 15th, 12-2pm, LadyDrinks Women’s Networking hosts one of its signature mentoring lunches. Three members are invited to lunch with Mona Bijoor, founder of JOOR.

LadyDrinks rings in International Women’s Day with a dinner series. Montreal February 13th. London March 3rd, The Milan dinner is March 5th.

How can you lift up other women?

LadyDrinks plans three dinners

LadyDrinks rings in International Women’s Day with a dinner series. The Montreal dinner is February 13th. The London dinner is March 3rd, The Milan dinner is March 5th. But as we march our way to the days, I have a challenge that we all as women can engage in.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY IS MARCH 2020

Admittedly, International Women’s Day isn’t until March 8, 2020. But in the last two weeks, I had the privilege of engaging with several women who have shared some valuable ways we can lift other women up.

Kristy Wallace, CEO of the Ellevate Network, spoke on a panel at the women’s collaborative hub Luminary yesterday on the topic of best practices when it comes to networking. In this digital age, she doesn’t believe that all networking has to happen in person. She is an advocate for reposting, retweeting, resharing the accomplishments of other women. “Sometimes it’s easier than talking about yourself.”

Author and networking expert Kelly Hoey was our fireside chat guest last Thursday at LadyDrinks. She wrote the book “Build Your Dream Network” challenging women to build and activate different networks at different junctures in their careers. “Networking is about generosity and trust,” she shared. We engender both by engaging in the above activity listed by Wallace.

So in the lead up to the dinners, starting Feb 13th, I have a plan. Read on to learn how you too can lift other women up–without getting on a plane.

According to scientists, women are actually better at tasting wine than men. Yet women are often overlooked at the restaurant table when it comes to ordering and tasting wine.

Yassmin Dever of Sotheby’s Wine Advisory has developed educational programming to empower women to own the wine list and speak confidently and intelligently about wine. Join us December 5th at 6pm for an exquisite evening of wine education and tasting through a curated selection of some of her favorite fine wines.

This evening is generously hosted at Volvo Manhattan, dedicated to both safety and sustainability.
