I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to attend the Glambitious Empowerment Panel & Mixer, which took place at celebrity chef Rob Gayle’ Restaurant “Chef Rob’s Caribbean Café & Upscale Lounge” in Roswell, Georgia Wednesday, February 5, 2014.
Entertainment Publicist and Celebrity Correspondent Lillie Mae along side Rolling Out Magazine, BE Magazine, Its My Hair Magazine, Chef’s Rob’s Upscale Lounge and T-shirt Divas collaborated to create this phenomenal gathering of female business owners designed to give attendee the opportunity to network, discuss professional experiences, overcoming adversity, balancing work and home, and how to be successful. There were a variety of giveaways and the event collected gently worn shoes for the “40 Girls and Some Shoes” nonprofit organization.
The Panelist consisted of the owner of Tu La 2 Nail Salon Sharlinda Parker (Tula2NailSalon.com), Life Coach Wendy Nicole Anderson (PositiveInfluenceCoaching.com), Celebrity Chef & Indigenous Activist Chef Ahki (ChefAhki.com), Fashion Stylist, Blogger & Boutique Owner NeShanta Davis (StyleIsShe.com), and Creator of Bodyology Wear Kelly Burton (BodyologyWear.com).
The event began at 7 PM, which allowed the attendees to get settled, network and order delicious dishes from Chef Rob’s kitchen. I arrived at 7:30 and was immediately impressed by the ambiance of the restaurant. Dim lights, vibrant colors and the sultry sounds of the Caribbean alone will keep you coming back for more. You can check out Chef Rob’s Upscale Lounge here (http://www.chefrobscafe.com/) and trust me you will not be disappointed. The food is AMAZING! Once 8 PM rolled around, the lovely ladies on the Panel introduced themselves, discussed their brands, and their personal journeys that made them what they are today. Lillie Mae asked the Panel a series of questions such as “How do you balance being an entrepreneur and having a family life?” “What challenges did you face when starting your business and how did you overcome them?” And “How did you achieve success with you brand?” Just to name a few. Once Lillie Mae was finished, she opened the floor to attendees to ask the Panel questions of their own.
Overall, I am extremely thankful to meet such a wonder group of business women. This was a very informational event for female entrepreneurs who are thinking of starting their own business or currently has a brand of their own. I encourage everyone to Like Lillie Mae’s Giving Glam Organization Facebook Page to learn more and attend future events.
I am also glad I went here instead of attending a certain bistro & bar *hint* *hint*
