Entrepreneurs and business women recently gathered at Hirsch’s Meadowdale for the monthly Ladies Networking event, and ready to inspire and connect the ladies with her talk- “Developing an Attitude of Contribution in 2018”- was Guest Speaker, Debbie Botha the founder of Core Business Training Solutions.
Debbie started her talk by telling the ladies that you cannot give what you do not have, however you do need to contribute to other’s lives to make them more effective, whether it be in business or in a personal capacity. Not everything in life is about giving and receiving, but giving and sharing your knowledge, expertise and time goes a long way. Be more intentional with your actions and what you say to contribute positively to others.
Debbie ended her talk by quoting Jimmy Carter: “I have one life and one chance to make it count for something . . . I’m free to choose what that something is. I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference.”
After Debbie’s talk, networkers were given the opportunity to present themselves and their business in a 30-second ‘elevator pitch’, followed by some lucky draws, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying some refreshments.
