There are days where ‘procrastination’ is my middle name, however, after I attended the Business Chicks ‘9 to Thrive’ expo I found my resurgence. Filled with everything women need to get their ‘but into gear‘, the expo showed me and many other women how to kick ass in the business world. (excuse the language)
With over 40 speakers, 150 brands and thousands of women in attendance, ‘9 to Thrive’ changed my way of thinking. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect from the event, but it definitely exceeded all my expectations. It gave me a platform to network, listen to inspirational people and try new products on the market. But most of all, ‘9 to Thrive’ made me feel like I was a part of a community.
We are lucky to be in the presence of so many wonderful entrepreneurs, and hearing stories of success from some of these women was special. The expo reminded me that success does not happen overnight, and it is important to work hard. With guest speakers including, Jessica Rowe, Lorna Jane Clarkson, Emma Isaacs, Rachael Finch, Samantha Wills & Megan Hess, the only downfall of the expo was that I didn’t attend both days!
Whether you are looking for a day of networking, meeting new people or just a day with your girls, ‘9 to Thrive’ provided all the above. Filled with inspiration and talent, there is something for everyone to take away from the event.
However, Business Chicks is more than just a group that hold a yearly expo – Business Chicks exists to make the world a better place for women. As the largest and most influential community for women, their role is to help and support women achieve their goals and remind us that we are capable in whatever life brings. Business Chicks definitely live up to their beliefs…
