Tampa, FL, June 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Tampa-based e-BlackWomenNetwork launches its every other month luncheon series on Saturday, July 21, 2012, 12 – 2 p.m. at the Brio Tuscan Grill, International Plaza, 2223 N. Westshore Boulevard, Tampa, FL. This luncheon is designed for the business woman who is feeling frazzled, overwhelmed and lost in the process of juggling a business, perhaps a job, family and home. If you wonder if you’ll be able to pursue your vision of a profitable business while maintaining your sanity, or if you live for the weekends so you can catch your breath, this luncheon is especially for you.
Carmin Wharton, founder of e-BlackWomenNetwork states, “There are thousands of women who start a business while employed full-time. Because of this, these women are juggling a business, career and home are almost always frazzled, pressed for time and constantly searching for that elusive work-life balance. To make matters worse, we have this burning desire to start or grow our business but lack of time to devote to the business causes a great deal of physical, mental and spiritual stress. The stress is compounded because we don’t have time to take action steps to bring our product or service into reality. If we don’t ever actually take steps to create and promote whatever it is that we are selling, success is impossible. We have to find a way to keep our mental, spiritual and physical health intact while we are pursuing our vision of a profitable business.”
While perfect balance in our lives may seem as elusive as a winning lottery ticket, Dr. Stacey Pearson-Wharton will share some things women can do to alleviate or reduce that overwhelming feeling and allow them to enjoy their lives as they pursue their vision – be it building a business, writing a book, continuing their education, losing weight, etc. while maintaining a job or career and their relationships.
When asked this topic is of particular importance to Black business women, Wharton states “While all female entrepreneurs are under a certain amount of stress, this stress is compounded for Black women because we tend to have less access to financing to start or grow a business.”
Attendees will learn:
· There is no “perfect balance” and why that is okay.
· How to stay focused on your vision and not become distracted by bumps on the road of life.
· A simple, yet highly effective and inexpensive tool to jumpstart your vision whether it is a profitable business, getting a college degree, losing weight, writing a book. This tool can be adapted to any and all visions!
Are you ready to get unleashed?
· How much longer are you willing to struggle and not provide your gift to the world?
· How long will it take for you to just give up and shelve your grand vision?
· What does delaying your vision and dream cost you?
· What if you were able to focus all your energy on the things that support, feed, and uplift you? How would your life change? How would you feel?
