Marmee's Circle: Good Company
Okay, I am so excited and scared at the same time. You know when you decide to have a party? You get your guest list down, a theme, a menu and decor? (Well I do anyway. Stop giving my post that weird look.) Anyway, back to the party. You get excited and imagine what people will say about the food etc... Then it hits you - fear! You freeze with thoughts of rejection. What if no one comes? What if they show up and no one talks to each other?
Well I have been hoarding a lot of those thoughts lately. I am on a new adventure and it all started with the birth of this blog. Many months ago, I started listening to the amazing stories that women shared about starting businesses or overcoming difficulty. I was awestruck. Their stories fueled my desire to encourage others. Every time I met someone who took a chance or went against the tide, my desire to connect these women with others grew.
That is how Marmee's Circle was born. What is Marmee's Circle? Marmee's Circle is a website for every woman. It is a place where women can share, connect, and shop. On this site I will feature products and services by women who have inspiring stories that we can glean from.
So the party is being planned. Sure enough, I have those fearful feelings about people showing up and connecting. So when you get your invite please come, take your shoes off, you'll be in good company.
The invites aren't ready so here is a save the date. Please attend our on-line party for the launch of Marmee's Circle on September 13th, at 7:00 pm eastern standard time. Go ahead put it on your on-line calendar. Don't forget, we have prizes!
