August Victory Newsletter

Victorious Woman Project

Hi Victory Reader,
This Victory Update is packed because there’s been a lot happening at The Victorious Woman Project these past few months! First of all, we had wonderful entries this year for the Victorious Woman Contest. Thanks and Kudos to everyone who entered and CONGRATULATIONS to contest winners Erin Connell, Paula Whittaker & Anne Lawrence. Read their stories  to find out what makes these women SO VICTORIOUS!

Next, May’s Annual Victorious Woman Celebration, The Girlfriend Gala was bigger and better than ever! What a great night to celebrate the Victorious Woman in each of us! As host and emcee, I started the festivities with some special motivational remarks borrowing some help from The Help. Comedian Theresa Hummel Krallinger’s humor had us laughing until we cried! Special honors went to Victorious Woman Honorees The Prosperity Sisters and to Pattie Painter (one of the original victorious women – her chapter is If I Were Brave). See how Pattie reinvented herself after cancer.  We had some great  baskets for the raffle, had an awesome silent auction and everyone left with a gift bag. AND we raised almost $2000 for two great charities: Safe Harbor for the Homeless and the Phil-Hanna Fund, which supports women caregivers.

See pictures and read reviews from the Gala!
Then, my most unusual speaking gig this summer happened a couple weeks ago. I was invited by the women at Eileen Fisher Ardmore PA to give a motivational talk for one of their philanthropic projects, Katie at the Bat. “Katie Camp” helps inner city girls grow and achieve victory through sports. The girls ranged in age from 10-14, an age group I haven’t talked to since I taught middle school. I talked with these women-in-waiting about victory and power – their own personal, feminine power – and they “got it”; they were great! And Katie Camp organizers Lisa and Marian told me the girls were “enthralled” by what they heard.

Based on what I saw as they were leaving, I know the girls learned some different and important concepts about power, visioning and the power of their thoughts – new ideas that they’ll have for a lifetime. And, my Victorious Friends, that’s what totally jazzes me about what I do – outcomes like that are the reason I wake up every morning and go to work.
By the way, if you’ve been reading my blog, you know that my goal this year is to clean out every drawer, closet and room in my home. It’s been quite an adventure – especially comical was the day I found myself in Space Bag hell. Has that ever happened to you? Whew! The commercials don’t explain that some kind of coordination is a pre-requisite (but maybe it’s just me…).

In case you don’t already know it, cleaning and purging is a Law of Attraction technique that works! If you haven’t tried it, give it a go and see what comes into your life as you let other things leave it. And here’s an added benefit when you do it: the people at the Salvation Army (one of my favorite charities) are always glad to get the clothes, shoes and other [working] items you no longer need.

And speaking about the Law of Attraction, I’m offering the Victorious Woman Vision Board Webinar again. The LOA helps you attract what you want into your life –  a good relationship, achieving personal and professional goals, reshaping your life around one theme, or developing a deeper life experience. This webinar will teach you just what to do to get where you want to be. Register Now!

Other classes I’m offering this fall include The Art of the Start and How to Talk so People Will Listen.
