Local women entrepreneurs recently gathered at Hirsch’s Fourways for their monthly women in business networking event with guest speaker Leigh-Joy Mansel-Pleydell, a Coach and Counselor who dares to speak up and speak out on topics that touch all of our lives and yet, are often still relegated to the darkest corners of societal and personal shame. Commented Hirsch’s Marjone Barnard “Leigh’s infectious energy and deep commitment to the upliftment of people ensured a highly engaged and transformed audience ready to step-up and step into their own personal power.”
The 3 pillars which she focused on were self-care, tribe-care and sacred-care. “It is crucial to deliberately take care of our mental, emotional and physical health. Through self-care you improve your mood and reduce anxiety.” she said and went on to share some of her personal experiences, emphasizing that one should not feel guilty to focus on self-care.
The networkers were given the opportunity to showcase their products and introduce themselves and their businesses. This was followed by a lucky draw, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying refreshments.
