ENTREPINAYSHIP MINI-RETREAT: Cultivate Your Tribe/Sisterhood
Last Saturday, January 26, I was lucky enough to participate in the first Entrepinayship Mini-Retreat. It was quite a blessed meeting with a group of about ninety Pinay entrepreneurs/artists/creatives sharing the most positive energy between them. I signed up for 3 sessions and learned how to be one step closer to managing my money like a #bossbabe with Jen Fontanilla; got in touch with what my soul brand should look like with Jazmine Graza; and was thankfully reminded by sis Chona Bernardo that if we want to be lucrative at and happy while doing what we do, we must also make self-care a priority.
The women present were all open to receiving each other in love and light and the event was free of catty energy and crab-like mentality. What transpired instead was a sensational group of women who seemed to sincerely wanted to see each other succeed.
There’s room for all of us, sisters, I can almost hear them chanting in perfect meditative-unison.
Speaking of sisters, I have the BEST older and younger sisters in the universe. Period. They’re built-in best friends. The three of us make it a point to have regular “sister days”, during which we meet up simply to take a breather, catch up, eat yummy food and kinda have our mini-retreat. I know I’m lucky in that way because my parents basically gave me the best support system ever.
I think it’s important for all women, not just business owners, to really cultivate that group of people they surround themselves with and plant the seeds of positivity they want in their environments. Whether through attending retreats, holding true to a regular hangout with the homies, attending workshops and/or signing up for cooking classes - there’s a lot of different ways to find this connection.
