WOVI, Frisco Upcoming Events

I belong to a women's mentoring/networking group called Women of Visionary Influence, WOVI. I attend the Frisco chapter meetings. We meet the 4th Monday of every month at Blue Mesa Grill.

I have had the privledge of booking the speakers for this first part of the year.

Last night I was delighted to meet Courtney Warren, a social worker turned card designer. She and her presentation were as bubbly and delightful as her cards. Courtney encouraged us to slow down and communicate our love to family and friends. She even gave us a couple of her new Valentine cards to give to loved ones.

I enjoy attending WOVI meetings because WOVI isn't your typical surface-level networking group. At the end of each presentation the women at each table, share their answers to a question about the presentation. Everyone provides feedback. These are called "mento-rings" and they really allow women to connect both professionally and personally.

Everyone is invited to attend the WOVI meetings. Here are some of the other speakers who will be presenting this year.

March - Karon Karter, author of “The Six-Week Bikini Countdown. Karon will share tips on how to get your best, healthy body.

“What you think is what you feel, and what you feel is what you radiate through the gift of living your best, dare I say, sexier life — and what woman wouldn’t what that?” shares Karter.

April - Jenny Hander, author of “A Place of Peace.” In her topic, “Rose Colored Glasses,” which was inspired by her young daughter’s pink prescription glasses, women will learn to see “good”—no matter what circumstances life may bring.

Women will learn three key messages through Jenny’s “Rose Colored Glasses”
Losing sight – how challenging circumstances can strike you off course
Tiring of the darkness – realizing that you want and deserve better
Seeing Clearly – learning to regain focus on your hopes and dreams

May - Mary DeMuth - Abundant Parenting

Abundant parents get an ACTIVITY adjustment.
Abundant parents learn the importance of AUTHENTICITY.
Abundant parents are alive in the moment; they are AWARE.

What's your favorite business networking group?
