Hosting an event can be very unnerving because you never know what to expect. This event was especially challenging for me because I was hosting on behalf of Vernetta Freeney, CEO of Women are Gamechangers. Knowing that she was traveling to Montgomery Alabama from Houston Texas just for this event AND bringing guests from Atlanta Georgia added to the pressure.
The day turned out to be a success. The women who chose to attend left empowered and connected with other like-minded women which was the goal of the event. Thanks to everyone who came out to show their support. You are greatly appreciated. Thanks to Monique and Ms. Janice for being wonderful hostesses at Pure Artistry Literary Cafe and thanks to the panelist for sharing your knowledge with the group.
