The Virginia Women’s Business Conference was filled with powerful leaders and business owners with a vision. The conference (#VWBC2012) was on 11/16/12 this year.
It was all about moving your business and your mindset forward.
One of the featured speakers, Vernice Armour, was unforgettable. Vernice is a former Captain in the United States Marine Corps who was the first African-American female naval aviator in the Marine Corps and America’s first African American female combat pilot in the United States military.
Wow, what a huge accomplishment!
Now, she is a motivational speaker, author and coach. She shared her message on breakthrough mentality at the #VWBM2012.
Key take-aways from Vernice Armour:
- Go for Plan “A”
- 95% of businesses fail within the first 3-5 years. Not true, “they give up”
- Create a conversation in social media, not just SHOUT OUTS
- “Opportunities don’t go away. Other people just take advantage of them”
I drew these visual summaries to capture the conversation and the motivation.
