Celebrating Women

Women and Event Industry

Today is International Women’s Day, and March is National Women’s Month. It’s not enough for women business owners and entrepreneurs to achieve success – people have to know we are successful! Women are taught it’s not nice to brag, nice girls don’t boast, actions speak louder than words. As Shonda Rhimes said, 

“Men brag and women hide. Even when they don’t deserve to brag, men brag. When men do deserve to brag they are good at it. They do it so well. Men brag about everything. Even things that aren’t things.”

Women need to be each other’s biggest cheerleaders and celebrate each other’s successes as well as their own! 

The theme of International Women’s Days 2021 is Choose To Challenge. Today, I challenge you to reach out and publicly recognize a woman of achievement in your life:

  • Write a review on Google, Facebook or Yelp 
  • Make a referral 
  • Like, Follow, Tag and Share their social media profile 

Today, I’m recognizing my women colleagues on the board of the South Florida Chapter of the National Association of Catering and Events. The mission of NACE – South Florida is to advance the catering and events industry and its professionals. These women are consummate professionals, and they deserve to be recognized – and deserve your business.
