Then don’t delay, as all registrations must be received no later than Friday, February 2nd. Consider this weekend as a time to unplug from the craziness of the daily grind and push yourself out of your comfort zone to get a new perspective. Come and connect with other entrepreneurs with a wide range of skills, learn from others, see things differently and just refresh your brain. You might be pleasantly surprised to find that getting out of your normal environment may spark some new ideas. The weekend begins Friday evening with food, wine tasting, pampering and mingling to get to know everyone in attendance. Then, bright and early Saturday morning, get ready for a full day of team building activities, informative presentations, and lots of laughter and fun as you get to know your WBN sisters at a deeper level. All meals are provided and the evening will be full of fun with a craft project , bon fire and games. Sunday morning brings breakfast and two more interactive workshops before the weekend activities wrap up. Throughout the weekend a fun scavenger hunt will be occurring. There is also drawing to win a gift basket for those attending the entire weekend. Sponsorship opportunities are still open so contact Darlene Karpaski for all the specifics. YEAR OF THE MEMBER NETWORKING PARTY Saturday, January 27th 11:30 AM at Jimmy Wan’s 1337 Old Freeport Road—Fox Chapel Wǒ xiān zǒule, xià cì zài liánxì ba 我 先 走 了 下 次 再 联 系 吧 This is what you will say as you leave the Year of the Member party, “It was really nice talking with you.” So, why should you come in the first place? As answered in Chinese proverbs: A thousand cups of wine do not suffice when true friends meet but half a sentence is too much when there is no meeting of the minds. A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. Be not afraid of growing slowly—be afraid of standing still. “Gung hay fat choy,” which means, “May you become prosperous.” Attend and build relationships with your WBN sisters. We will be asking members to RSVP, but no pre-payment is due. Each lady will pay the cost of whatever she orders off the menu. This way we can be flexible with regard to the weather during this time of the year. REMEMBER EVERY EVENT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO NETWORK! Providing personal and professional resources to advance the presence of aspiring and successful businesswomen
