The Power of ONE...

There's something to be said for getting outside of your COMFORT ZONE! For the past 4 years, I've used my computer as a way to almost "hide" myself from the outside world. If truth be told, I have a huge fear of networking face to face. I decided that I wanted to get past this fear--not only to grow my business, but to grow as a person.

So, last week I joined a Women in Business organization here locally in Texas to meet other local business owners and network. TOOT TOOT!!! I was SO proud of myself. I was able to easily converse with each that I met and I exchanged business cards with everyone I came in contact with. More importantly, I was finally able to "see" myself as they see me--a business woman! No more thoughts of not being good enough or hiding behind my laptop. This is the start of something GREAT...I can feel it.


  1. Congratulations - you SHOULD be very proud of yourself - good luck with your networking and happy tooting!

  2. Well done Edie.....
    *slap on the back*

    I can hear your confidence has already been boosted!
    Great to meet you.

  3. That's great...congratulation. Happy tuesday

  4. Great step to do, Edie!

    Happy TT!

  5. That is wonderful - this is only the beginning - I am sure you will meet lots of other women to network with and grow your business.

  6. That is really great. I also have a hard time in those kind of situations. I have two right now that have meetings going on near me and I know I should go to them and probably will...but I am not real comfortable in groups where I walk in not knowing anyone. If I am on a one on one talking about organizing or in a group of strictly bloggers or organizers then I have some comfort, but going into a group of woman and men who are business owners scares me...but I know to grow my business I also must gather it up and just do it! Thanks
