we begin to embark on the hectic hustle and bustle of the holiday
season I always try to remind myself to try to slow down and actually
appreciate times with friends and family. This is easier said than done,
as busy professional women, we too often take on more than we can
handle. My hope is that each of you, regardless of your
traditions, make time for YOURSELF this season. Enjoy a glass of wine
with friends, head off to the spa, or do whatever you need to
I also want each of you to treat yourself to
hearing our next speaker, Ginger Martin, President of American National
Bank. For those of you who do not know Ginger, she is an absolute
dynamo. She has been involved in Freedom Climbs, climbing to the
summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, and others, to raise money and
awareness for victims of human trafficking.
For those who
have not yet renewed their BWA membership, we miss you! We have
many exciting and new things in store for you this year. You don't want
to miss out.
I hope to see those we have been missing in November.
