Confidence is critical to success, so make it a priority this year

By | March 5th, 2018|W2W|

Confidence, for women, is a topic we need to talk about more. Raising confident girls who mature into confident women needs to be a high priority for us. Why? Because I see too many women whose lack of confidence is holding them back. I'm not necessarily talking about career advancement, though we'll get to that. [...]

Authenticity is the key to building trust and being true to yourself

By | February 6th, 2018|W2W|

I've noticed a strong push in the past 10 years for organizations and people to prioritize authenticity. And it's no wonder when you look at the number of news stories that highlight less-than-honest practices, questionable behaviour, and outright illegal activities. We all want more honesty and integrity in the world. When you look up the [...]

Value – Understanding and communicating your worth to your audience

By | January 2nd, 2018|W2W|

What exactly is value? Well, it doesn't have much to do with actual money. Personally, I like this definition from the Oxford Dictionary: The regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.

Build better business relationships with gratitude

Thank you. Two simple words that pack a lot of punch when it comes to how they make people feel. After all, when it comes to building solid relationships, gratitude can make a big difference. I've been fortunate (and grateful) to work with a number of people who actively practice gratitude. Being around them has [...]

By | November 6th, 2017|W2W|

Money. It's a taboo subject when it comes to what we make, how we spend, whether we have a rainy day fund or if we're on the right track to be ready for retirement. And that's just personal finances. If you throw in business finances, it gets a lot more challenging. “We can tell our [...]

Want to sell value? Then stop selling and start helping.

By | October 2nd, 2017|W2W|

There are few things about business that are more despised than selling. But I tend to think we're looking at sales the wrong way and I was guilty of it, too. The thing is, we're all conditioned to hate selling because we think about the proverbial used car salesman. And we all know that guy [...]

Network wisely, selectively and with the right focus

By | September 1st, 2017|W2W|

As a business network, we have a vested interest in helping people learn how to network effectively. After all, if our members don't get what they need, why would they stay? The WBN is a large network of over 200 women who all have different goals for their professional lives and reasons for joining. That's [...]
