WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) Local female professionals, entrepreneurs and community leaders joined forces at the “W.E.W Power Breakfast Series” to have an authentic conversation about life.
“Your greatness has to be known, because your greatness is going to help someone else.”
Those words of inspiration from Jessica Taylor captured the essence of Friday’s W.E.W. (Women Empowering Women) Power Breakfast.
The local vegan chef who is also an entrepreneur, motivational speaker and educator said women must choose to embrace and celebrate their own unique traits, abilities and accomplishments so they can help other women do the same.
“We are taught to not boast, but that’s not boasting though. Boasting is ‘I got this, and I got that,'” Taylor said snapping her fingers. “See, these are talents and gifts. No, you’re not bragging.”
The W.E.W. Power Breakfast series provides opportunities for “extraordinary women from all walks of life to inspire and equip women to live their lives on their terms,” according to event information.
These activities are designed to bring women professionals, entrepreneurs and community leaders together to have “an authentic conversation about life, in the pursuit of success, family, happiness, wealth and equality.”
More than two dozen attendees braved the chilly morning weather to bask in the warmth and comfort served up in abundance inside The Carriage House at the Howard Steamboat Museum.
The breakfast was presented by brand marketing and photography firm F5 Enterprises and hosted by Teah Williams-Hampton, a local licensed clinical social worker in private practice.
In addition to Taylor, the event’s panelists also included Jesika Young, president/ CEO of Cimtech, and Michelle Huber, director of marketing and communication for Fuzzy Zoeller Golf Courses and Zoeller’s personal assistant.
Williams-Hampton also peppered the conversation with her thoughts while moderating the event, providing the voice of a professional therapist who has witnessed first-hand how damaging low self-esteem can be on a person’s heart, mind and soul.
