During my break, I pulled out the holiday music. I've always been a big fan, I think it has to do with overloading the senses. For a couple of weeks every thing's bright, the music sappy (even in the Indie form which also tends to be cheeky) and we prepare for the holidays. Perhaps because I was raised Jewish, I'll listen to anything holiday related, any denomination, any language, it's the sentiment that counts.
Today I'm reeling from the success of yesterday's holiday party. It was wonderful. As predicted, I met some wonderful people. Plus, I bought some truly unique holidays gifts (in fact, I'd love to list them here, but don't want to give away any holiday surprises). New York is such a big city, full of so many people (which is what makes it big and culturally rich) doing exciting things. Going to events like this and the one I attended at In Good Company, I'm so inspired. There should be more opportunities to meet like this. It's not a bar, it's not a show, the common factor is that the women here are looking to meet other cool women.
One of the people I was really pleased to see was Judith Steinhart - Health & Sexuality Consultant. Judith & I had met before. I wasn't sure exactly what she did by the end of our last meeting and didn't have the opportunity to ask. But there's something about her energy that's just so compelling. Speaking with her this time, within 1 minute I felt comfortable. She's one of those people to whom you could say anything, anything in the world. She just radiates.
Her sister Deb was also selling jewelry, a beautiful necklace she designed and has on her Infinite Wishes website. We shared our experiences and excitement selling our new products for the first time. It was wonderful to know I wasn't the only person new to this experience.
Joanne Morton, brought her own Magic Passion Love and all of those feelings, while she gave readings using her Magic Passion Love cards. As the host and organizer, her warm openness really set the tone for the event.
In the end, I sold 2 items (yay!) completed some holiday shopping (bonus!), found a cool jacket and belt in the clothing swap, and spent the afternoon with some really cool women. New ideas were struck and the inspiration will last me for weeks!
