Give back and get back more

I attended a delightful gathering of Positively Powerful people organized by Joel Martin from and her husband Bob recently.  Joel has created a wonderful celebration of talented people in the valley through her Positively Powerful events.  At this breakfast meeting we shared the joy of giving and learned how to turn contacts into contracts.  I had the pleasure of meeting quite a few people I did not know and was pleasantly surprised to connect with some business opportunities I was not expecting.  Joel is classy, warm and an outstanding speaker and business professional.  If you have not had the chance to meet her please connect with her at and tell her I said to call.

Although budgets are tight and bank accounts are thin you can always find a way to give back this holiday season if only by connecting with friends and family.  I am looking forward to helping a well deserved local charity in February when we donate the proceeds from our raffle, at the 2010 Women Entrepreneurs’ Small Business Boot Camp.  Check out the details at
