Women who blog – Way to network with each other!


Found this at Downtown Women’s Club WomensDish blog. What a great idea! Women supporting other women who blog. Read this list, try reading the ones that sound interesting. Great way to meet other women and keep up with cool and interesting developments among dynamic women just like you. I’ve added Kirsten Osolind’s ReinventionInc. and Sharan Tash’s The Pronetworker.

As Diane, author of WomensDish and founder of DWC, notes: The W List is the invention of Valeria Maltoni at Conversation Agent. See her posting here. It’s up to us women to use the Internet to help us create the old girls network that’s the best possible way for us to begin strengthening our ability to achieve all we want.

Beautiful people – beautiful celebration – beautiful holiday – and thank yous


I finally got the link to the photos from our lovely celebration in Chicago of Single Working Women’s Week.

And thanks again to our wonderful speaker, Sharan Tash, for generously practicing what she preaches–give without thought of return.

And see the beautiful lady on the right in the pink dress? That’s Beatrice Davis, publisher of the quirky online entertainment magazine No Strings Attached ENews, and a wonderful woman without whose generous sharing of her expertise and her connections and her support this celebration would never have come about. Thank you, Beatrice. Your generous spirit reaches out across the miles to make a difference for people all over the world. SWWAN is blessed to have you as an advisory board member.

And thank you, Dave Lade, for these lovely, professional photos. Readers, check ’em out and if you need some great pictures yourself, contact Dave at 312-946-0301. He’s at your service.

Single women: reach out and give without asking back


Give with your whole heart. Don’t ask for a return. Connect with each other–for business, for all the things we need in life.

That’s what celebrants at last night’s opening event heard from keynote speaker Sharan Tash, owner of The ProNetworker, Inc., NAWBO Chicago director, NSA speaker, and creator of the “pay-it-forward, boomerang networking” concept. Sharan told of how giving from the heart without thought of return always comes back to you tenfold.

As a shining example of practice-what-you-preach, Sharan, SWWAN thanks you for inspiring attendees at this celebration of the first annual Single Working Women’s Week holiday.

Hostess Monica Davis praised single women and single mothers for all they contribute. Thanks to all those who shared in this delightful evening, including sponsors Lynfred Winery and National City Bank. Special thanks to Rebecca Gutermuth, designer of the beautiful SWWAN jewelry line, who hosted the party at her lovely store, Radiance Fine Jewelry.

And special thanks to columnist and authoress Jacquee Thomas whose contributions made the event extra special. Passionate speaking, wine, food, violins, and sharing. It was a beautiful event. For a copy of the event’s program, click here. Photos will be posted as soon as we can get them up!

If you live in Cleveland, please join us for our Cleveland SWWAN party TOMORROW!
