I started the 10 Day Detox a week ago Sunday. I awoke this morning with a lot on my mind that requires my attention. Mainly, I was concerned with the fact that not one person has enrolled in my WomanSpeak Speaking Circle.
On December 17, 2017, I hosted an Introductory Presentation to inform people what WomanSpeak was all about. I had 14 women in attendance. During the personal introductions, in response to my question of why they showed up, women consistently stated they were there to support me. I believe it was the 11th or 12th person that stated, I came for myself (although I want to support Davina), I really need what is offered here.
The actual ongoing meetings were scheduled to launch on January 14, 2018. I was there, but no one registered online or showed up. Since the meetings are every 2nd and 4th Sunday, today was that time again. No one registered, and I did not go to the space and sit alone this time. I politely notified everyone via the invite on social media that due to lack of registration, this week’s meeting has been canceled.
I checked my VOICE before making that decision:
I value WomanSpeak’s mission of helping women become confident public speakers. This opportunity is not for everyone. My intuition reveals that I have not reached the women that need WomanSpeak the most. In my marketing, I must provide (charity) more information about WomanSpeak in an effort to engage the right women.
I believe that experiences are mini-lessons that are designed to guide us through life. I look for the lesson in everything. WomanSpeak has really gotten me to take a look at how important it is for women to have a safe place to express their authentic selves. It is an honor and privilege to lead a Speaking Circle.
WomanSpeak is founded by KC Baker, International Speaker whose vision is that women, “Speak their truth and change the world.” I fully support that vision!
