Plan, BusinessThe 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.
