United State Of Women Summit

 

I had the opportunity to speak on my first panel at the United State of Women Summit. The panel was called the 2nd Act – From Athlete to Entrepreneur.  All the panelist were amazing, I was being inspired while inspiring others. One reoccurring theme amongst us all was to be successful it takes patience, resiliency, hard work, confidence and the willingness to take risks. In Addition to. the amazing women panels, Michelle Obama was the keynote. In other words, this event was major and I am honored that it was my first.

The theme of the United State of Women Summit was Barriers were meant to be broken.  Now if that isn’t a motivating and inspiring theme I don’t know what is if nothing else it’s intriguing 😉 .  It focuses on gender equality, women empowerment, and provides access, connections, and tools to equip women to power through their barriers. We were there to inspire, motivate, and encourage other women in their journeys as we talked about struggles, successes, triumphs, and ways we changed the game, broke through and overcame our own challenges whether through sport or business.

After my panel, I networked with some of the women-owned business vendors on the exhibit floor, 2 businesses I fell in love with are TomboyX and Sama Eyewear. I was able to meet the owners of both companies and not only do I love their products but truly believe and relate to their mission. TomboyX is a comfortable underwear made for women of all sizes by women. I must admit I love them and they are extremely comfortable. Can’t wait to try the Drirelease fabric 😉. As for Sama Eye Wear, all I can say is fabulous! They are incredibly innovative and unique designed glasses and sunglasses designed by Shelia Vance. She is responsible for introducing the world to luxury fashion eyewear and described as a person who has charity for a heart, technology for a brain and fashion for a soul. I was fortunate to meet and interact with her at the summit… Now I am also a proud owner of a pair of her awesome sunglasses.
