Making the Most of Your Conference Ticket

By | 2017-10-10T17:32:13+00:00 October 3rd, 2017|Business, Faith|

Our first LIVE swHw conference is almost upon us, and we are giddy with excitement over here! Needless to say, it’s hard for my brain to give thought to much else, so while it’s at the forefront of my mind, I thought I would give you my top tips to make the most out of any event experience. (And Narrow peeps, I seriously cannot wait to squeeze you!) Tip 1:  Prepare ahead of time.   Do your homework before the event begins. Most conferences post the agenda ahead of time. (Here’s ours!) By looking ahead at the schedule, you can get an idea of what you’ll need to wear/bring, plan accordingly for travel, meals and any free time, and look up the event presenters to connect with them on social media. (You could always say hello ahead of time just in case you want to ask a follow-up question during or after the event!) Tip 2: Don’t skip sessions.   You didn’t interrupt your normal life and pay money for a conference ticket to lounge by the pool or go check out a local coffee joint. Fight the urge to skip sessions for pleasure, even if you’re the only [...]

My Top Three Takeaways as the swHw Summer Intern

By | 2017-09-08T16:34:42+00:00 August 22nd, 2017|Business, Faith, Faith-Based Leadership|

Hello! My name is Lauren Croft and I had the awesome privilege of working with Michelle, James, and their family this summer as an intern for she works His way. If you’ve ever wondered what life is like inside the Myers’ household, allow me to be the one to open the front door for you. Here are my top three takeaways from this summer: They really care. Seriously, y’all. From the first phone call I had with Michelle about this internship, I could hear and feel the passion in her heart for the ministry, her family, and her relationship with Jesus. From that one phone call in my dorm room at Liberty University, I knew I wanted to work for her and her family because when someone cares that much, you just can’t help but follow suit. I’ll be honest, I truly had no idea what she really did for a living when we talked, but with as much energy and passion as she exuded over the phone, I wanted to know more. I’ve seen Michelle and the team behind-the-scenes, which I wish you all had the opportunity to witness. They work extremely hard to serve the community of [...]

Striking the Balance of Dreaming and Doing

By | 2017-08-07T01:24:24+00:00 August 8th, 2017|Business|

My work puts me in contact with lots of entrepreneurs. Over the years, I’ve discovered very few have been able to strike a balance between learning and implementation.  Of course, knowledge and vision is an important piece of entrepreneurship, but so is the willingness to try, even if it means failing a few times before you land on your feet. Let’s talk about what happens if we tend to lean to either extreme of dreaming or doing…The Over-Dreamer These entrepreneurs might as well call themselves professional students, as they spend their workdays reading, listening to podcasts, and having lots of ideas and opinions… yet they never really do anything.This person can quote leaders in their field with ease, always seems to have an opinion on what others are doing, and is never short on ideas on how everyone else should implement. Yet, they spend so much time learning and researching that they never actually get around to doing anything.These entrepreneurs are rarely in situations where they don’t “know” the answer. Yet because their brain and their resume don’t add up, the opportunities don’t come. And if you never move forward, you will get lapped, even by the runner with the [...]

Top 5 Tools Needed to Grow An Online Platform (that Most Will Ignore)

By | 2017-08-07T01:00:15+00:00 July 5th, 2017|Business|

Entrepreneurs used to be the exception. But as the traditional job market is changing, business ownership is on the rise. In fact, last month, Business Insider reported that 3 out of 10 people who work full-time also have a side hustle. Multiple factors are at play here as to why there’s a sudden rush of independent business owners, but there’s no doubt that a huge factor is a decrease in the necessary funds to begin a business. No massive down payment, loan approval, or real estate is required anymore. Basically, all you need now is an idea and a phone, and you can be in business. Growing an online platform has never been simpler than it is today. But with the increase of the number of businesses in the market, coupled with constant social media algorithm changes, it’s also much more challenging to build a platform that stands apart from the rest. But contrary to what we may think, the latest tech tools aren’t the X-factor for brand visibility. For platform growth, we’ll have to look inside ourselves to pull out these five non-negotiable tools. Patience I remember at the beginning of building my first online platform, I would post [...]

Are You a Woman of Kindness…Or Just a Nice Woman?

By | 2017-08-07T01:00:24+00:00 June 20th, 2017|Faith, Family|

Are you a kind person or a nice person? If you thought those two adjectives were basically the same thing, think again! Kindness and niceness might look similar, but underneath the surface, the two attributes are completely different. And that difference can make all the difference in your relationships, both personally and professionally. In fact, for some of us, replacing niceness with kindness just might be the key between peace and frustration both at home and at work. Here’s why: Kindness comes from confidence. Niceness comes from fear.   A Woman of Kindness speaks what is true with love and conviction. A Nice Woman speaks what is pleasant to avoid upsetting others.   Whether it’s addressing the person on your team who chronically falls short, or the friend whose personal blind spot is affecting your relationship, kindness has the courage to speak up for someone else’s ultimate good. Sometimes, the kindest thing you can do is tell someone what they don’t want to hear, but need to hear. In fact, Proverbs 27:6 says “Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy.” Painful truth from a sincere friend is trustworthy, but empty compliments from [...]
