Happy Friday…Happy Weekend! June is here, and it is 3 months since I have moved to Oberlin, but who am I and what is Empower Excellence now! Empower Excellence remains focused on financial transitions: career, personal, and lifestyle. It also remains more focused on networking for women as they make career transitions: the award-winning regional Professional Women’s Connection in Lorain, Cuyahoga, and Lake counties and The Partnering Program as an intro for those new to networking in Lorain County.
But, there is more to Empower Excellence today: food is directly tied to money. That is true from the farmer who produces the food, the food entrepreneur from the farmer’s market and restaurant, and each of us making choices in what we eat and feed our families. Our personal relationship with money affects how we make choices with food, and, consequently, our health. With my background in helping local food entrepreneurs finding financing as well as helping women make financial transitions, and more so to help folks make healthy financial decisions with food, I have begun my “healthy” venture as a Pampered Chef consultant. Intentional work in this area will be to work with local farmers through farm markets, with entrepreneurial women in transition to create their own businesses, and through virtual cooking shows as well as traditional “healthy” cooking shows. Money rules when it comes to food!
And because money rules with food, my affiliation with Pampered Chef, will allow me to work with local nonprofits to raise money for their organizations–food related and others. This is a different approach to organizational fundraising.
Yes, Empower Excellence is becoming more The Empower Excellence Experience…money affects all parts of our lives.
And with that, rounding out the Mind, Body, Spirit experience, Empower Excellence introduces The Practice at Oberlin. As a weekly program in spirituality, meeting in Oberlin, all are welcome to the non religious discussions and more.
yes, Empower Excellence has evolved into The Empower Excellence Experience, but in many ways we remain the same….
