LIVINGSTON, NJ - Last month, nearly 50 women attended the launch of the Livingston Believe, Inspire, Grow (B.I.G.) pod, which was held at Julie Maloof Designs (inside old Oxford Learning Center) 97 A. South Livingston Ave., with parking in the rear. B.I.G. is a community-based network of women empowering women to personal and professional fulfillment through education, networking and support.
Guests met and spoke with B.I.G. founders Tara Gilvar and Rebecca Hull, as well as with local pod leaders, who shared their experiences and personal and business successes through B.I.G. Each attendee also had the chance to stand up and share an “elevator speech” with the audience.
Following the meeting, guests mingled, networked and dined on light refreshments and coffee.
Livingston B.I.G. pod leader, Jennifer Bronswick said she is hoping for another big turnout at the next meeting, which is being held on Tuesday, March 25, at 9:30 a.m. at the same location. She also said that the public is welcome to attend for free. Meetings will take place on the last Tuesday of every month.
Each month there will be is different speaker at the Livingston B.I.G. meeting. This month, Geeta T. Davies, a TRUE Abundance Creator, Speaker, and Mentor will be presenting her signature talk, "The Lakshmi Principals—What Do Your Emotions Have to Do with the Money You are Destined to Make?"
The talk will provide insight into the seven essential keys to creating a Life of TRUE Abundance. Of these topics, two key areas she will share in depth are Emotions and Money. She will help attendees recognize their emotions behind money, and discover healthier ways to respond to those feelings.
“We each have specific emotions, or emotional patterns, attached to money that were imprinted on us before we even had a choice to have a checking account,” said Davies. “Whether you personally recognize this or not, today those emotions impact every financial decision you face. They are responsible for how you make money, spend money, and keep money—or in my case it seemed to go out the door faster than it came in. Amazingly, those feelings are not just fleeting reactions; they actually influence how much money you'll make and keep throughout your life.”
Founded in Bernardsville, NJ, the rapidly growing organization offers more than 50 local community meetings each month across five states, ongoing regional networking events, as well as an interactive and informative website. Members of the groups generally join a chapter when they have questions in their lives about whether they have a great business idea that they just never acted on; if they desire to grow an established business and build relationships with smart, savvy women in the community; and/or if they are ready to start making an income and growing their network. Attendance at any first meeting is free.
According to the B.I.G. website, the Ideal B.I.G. member is the entrepreneurial woman who wishes to explore her professional passion; have a balanced and more fulfilled life; wants a proven channel to make her own money, on her own terms; is looking for a positive and supportive environment to brainstorm and build upon her professional ideas; desires business tools to begin building a successful and viable business; wants access to other like-minded entrepreneurial women, with shared goals in communities throughout the B.I.G. network; desires valuable business information from respected industry experts via B.I.G.’s ongoing monthly meetings and special events; and wants access to ongoing networking opportunities (through monthly meetings and special events) that yield both personal and professional positive relationships.
