I just returned from Be the Change 2012, Suzanne Evans‘ 3-day business event. And WOW. To be in a room of 600 other entrepreneurs was exhilarating. One of the coolest moments was when a small group of us were recognized for extraordinary action called the Hell Yeah award. (That’s us on stage in the picture. I’m the fifth from the left on the top row.) The people on stage either had a $10k month, a 6-figure year or a 7-figure year! I was smiling from ear to ear. It was all I could do to just keep it together because it was such a huge honor.

Back in my corporate days I loved the company parties, getting recognized for my efforts and celebrating reaching our revenue goals as a company. As an entrepreneur, who celebrates you? This is why two times a year I honor local women-preneurs in my area with a semi-annual “Biz Divas” party in beautiful Park City, Utah. If we don’t celebrate each other, then we’re missing out on a dang good reason to throw a party right? The next semi-annual party is a 2-day celebration on June 21-22!
