Building a community begins with a product we can rally around, support and get excited about, such as the Womanition magazine, hitting the stands on Friday.
Womanition is a community of strong business women, collectively doing business together, supporting each other and making a difference. Womanition is a community, built by women for women, and it all began with a magazine.
Guy Kawasaki wrote in The Art of Creating Community, “Frankly, if you create a great product, you may not be able to stop a community from forming even if you tried.”
This coming Friday, September 7 th , we comes together and celebrate you as a business woman and a member of the Womanition community as we gather for our honourary luncheon. The 2018 magazine will launch on Friday and I have another surprise I am very exciting to share with you.
I talk about the six pillars of Womantion and how each pillar is designed to support the growth of you and your business. The magazine is the hub of the community and when you take advantage, and participate in the networking luncheons, business relationships and friendships are formed as people will come to know and trust you. When we show up regularly, people remember and you will become recognized as the “go-to” person in your industry.
On October 12th , the biannual Womanition Bizbrigade will be held at the Chateau Louis Conference Centre. This popular women’s conference is focused on growing your business with a lineup of great speakers and a panel of experts.
Nominations are coming in for the Supearlative Awards. On February 24th , 2019, our annual Awards night is a gala event, celebrating the success of our peers, nominated by their peers.
I am very excited for you to meet the new Womanition members on Friday, we have over 100 women attending the honourary luncheon, so don’t forget your business cards.
See you Friday!Posted: Wednesday, September 4th, 1:00pm 19 days ago
“November 2014 was the first meeting I attended with Womanition at the Four Points Hotel on 75th street and 63rd Ave. in Edmonton. Since that day, my life has never been the same! Shortly after meeting with Dorothy Briggs, I became the facilitator of the Leduc Womanition Connect Group. I have been running the Leduc group since February 2015. February 2019 marks the beginning of my 4th year as the facilitator for the Leduc Womanition group. When I first saw a Womanition Magazine, I was determined to find a way to be featured in this beautiful, professional magazine. I have now been featured in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and am about to be published once again in the 2019 issue of the Womanition Magazine. It was actually through a client of mine that I became introduced to Dorothy Briggs. I had been carrying a copy of the 2014 Womanition Magazine around in my briefcase. One day when we were working in my client’s office, she asked me if I knew about Womanition? I pulled out my magazine from my briefcase and said, “Do you mean this Womanition?” She agreed and of course I wanted to attend the next meeting in Edmonton! That’s where I met Dorothy Briggs for the first time. I have received greeting cards in the mail from people congratulating me for being featured in the Womanition magazine. These people are not in the magazine. They don't even live in Edmonton! The first time I was featured in the magazine, my credibility shot up so much that I had 14 ladies come up to me and ask for my services. I will run the Leduc Womanition Connect Group and be in the Womanition Magazine for as long as I live in Alberta...not that I am planning to move any time in the future. Being part of Womanition has had a positive effect on my life. I will forever be grateful to Dorothy Briggs for believing in me enough to allow me to manage the Leduc Womanition group. As for business, most of my business comes through Womanition now. Yes, I still get clients through LinkedIn itself, but now it is 70% from Womanition and 30% from LinkedIn. Womanition has taught me so much about business and how to do business, as well as great people skills. Dorothy is truly inspired as a visionary for her Womanition business. I love her forever for being my friend and for loving me back.” -Christine Till
