I'm still processing from this weekend, and just tired from lack of sleep and travel and kids who don't understand sleeping in. 🙃 I haven't been able to quite capture the word for how I feel about this past weekend. .
So instead, I'll tell you about these women. They are hilarious, inspiring, smart, GOSH are they smart, they are uplifting, and hard-working. These women have master's degrees, they are dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, moms, business owners, and just incredible human beings. There is a cookbook author, a homeschooling mama, a doula, and a gardening pro in this picture. These women are making a difference in the world of the people around them and for the world of people that they don't even know yet. I am so lucky to get to call them teammates and to have been able to meet them in person and really dive deep together on some tough topics. We laughed and cried (even me, I KNOW).
This is Cassy's ( @fedandfit ) team and we met for a leadership weekend with two of other most successful teams in all of @beautycounter , led by @dianesanfilippo and @realeverythingblog . The knowledge shared by these three women alone was incredible, but the cherry on top was collaboration between teams. All these women running their own business helping each other be better, work harder, support each other.
The true magic in this company is that there is room for us all, and all 40 of us in attendance this weekend are truly cheering each other on because we believe that everyone can rise to the top. How amazing is that kind of vibe from a big group of women. And how amazing will it be to all celebrate TOGETHER when we make it?!
I dreamed about this weekend for several months before I earned it, and to be honest I didn't even dream it as great as it was. The work we're doing to get safer products into the hands of everyone is so important, but the truth is that we need more people spreading the message about harmful ingredients, how they're really affecting our health, and what we can do to change the norm.
Do you want to have an impact here? Join us and this mission? Every person in this picture had some kind of fear before they jumped in, or even said no at first.
