WESTERN WOMEN’S BUSINESS CONFERENCE June 20 – Building Your Tribe To Build Your Business

“Tell your story. Shout it. Write it. Whisper it if you have to. But tell it. Some won’t understand it. Some will outright reject it. But many will thank you for it. And then the most magical thing will happen. One by one… your tribe will gather. And you will never feel alone again.” L.R. Knost

We are so excited – Building Your Tribe to Build Your Business is an exciting theme for us… we see so many women in the area with growing tribes… yet we know that so many small business owners feel isolated and in need of a tribe… this is a great opportunity to dive deeper into topics related to building your tribe to build your business.

GLOBAL ECO WATCH – Eye on the Planet

GLOBAL ECO WATCH – Eye on the Planet

What Would You do to Save the Planet?

Offered by Alexander Gunler

When we talk about “the environment,” we are using a very simple term to describe concepts that are so much more complex. The air we breathe, the vast oceans that cover over 70 percent of our planet, the flora and fauna that inhabit each one of the earth’s biomes and ecosystems … all of these natural wonders must maintain a very specific equilibrium to flourish.

Starting with the dawn of the industrial revolution, human intervention has posed many challenges to these natural balances, resulting in an elevated number of environmental concerns we face today. With the Great Pacific Garbage Patch menacing the ocean, the Earth’s surface temperature expected to rise, and the planet constantly experiencing devastating, extreme weather, it’s time to ask ourselves: What are we doing to help?

Choose Joy, Create Money Magic

Choose Joy, Create Money Magic

By Rachel Tanksley

Does this bring you joy?  I bet the majority of you have heard this phrase before.  It is the heart of “KonMari,” Marie Kondo’s tidying and organizing method.  I became intrigued by Marie Kondo when my daughter was a toddler.  She teaches a super-efficient, space saving technique of folding clothes where you can still see each piece of clothing at the same time.  Boy was I excited by the prospect of having tidy toddler dresser drawers.  If you’ve spent much time around toddlers, you know that dream vanished quickly.  However, one concept I did incorporate into my life is asking myself the question “does this bring me joy?” and then acting accordingly based on the answer.

A NATION OF WEAVERS : The social renaissance is happening from the ground up

A NATION OF WEAVERS : The social renaissance is happening from the ground up

By David Brooks

Social fragmentation is the core challenge of our day. We long to be together, but we are apart. We are isolated by distrust, polarization, trauma and incivility. We live in a hyper-individualistic culture that pays lip service to community but which actually values success above relationship, ego above care, the market above society and tribal divisions over common humanity. A Nation of Weavers

THE ANDANTES: The Girl Group Left Behind

THE ANDANTES: The Girl Group Left Behind

by Touré, AARP The Magazine 

 The hidden figures of Hitsville sang on some of Motown’s biggest hits 

(Article was suggested to SheVille by Lytingale)

En español | Can she sing? Marlene Barrow and Jackie Hicks sounded downright skeptical. It was the summer of 1961, and the young women — then 19 and 21 years old, respectively — were at the Motown recording studio on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit. Barrow, tall and slender, and Hicks, bubbly and full-figured, had grown up singing in the choir of the Hartford Avenue Baptist Church.
